It’s officially COCKTAIL season and Summer is the perfect excuse to invite the girls over to have one (or two or .. 🙂 girlfriend cocktails! And we’ve got the Best Summer Cocktails to drink with your girlfriends!
“I’d write a book on parenting but it’d probably just end up being full of cocktail recipes.” Christian Hansen @9to5life
So, call up, email, Facebook event or group text to invite the girls over some Summer libations.We’ve got some ideas for you and we’re asking YOU to vote on and to add links to the 10 Best Summer Cocktails for Girlfriend Get-togethers. Just a few ideas on Cocktail GNO’s (Girl’s Night Out!) to get us started …
- THEME IT: My girlfriend Linda is a wonderful hostess and serves theme-based cocktails – like ‘Jelly Bean Shots’ for a party near Easter. (I can’t disclose the names of the X-rated cocktails she mixed up for a girlfriend ‘adult toy party!’) Visit the dollar store for some inexpensive decorations (balloons, candles, colorful plates, etc.). For a Summer theme, serve your girlfriend cocktails in colorful cups, use sand buckets for chips and snacks, and freeze mini water balloons, then place in a bucket to chill bottles of white wine.
- MUSIC TO YOUR EARS: Create a song list on iTunes, Pandora or a CD of summer songs – Beach Boys, Summer In The City – Lovin’ Spoonful, California Dreamin’ – Mamas & The Papas, and my favorite cocktail party music: “Martini Lounge.”
- SUMMER STYLE: Let the girls know it’s a sundress and favorite sandals kind of night. Give each other pedicures. Leave the cell phones in your purses and just catch up IRL (in real life!). And don’t forget to arrange the Adirondacks around a baby pool for the pedicured toes!
