Summer cocktails

Summer isn’t over yet; in fact here in Greece most people are taking their summer leave near August 15th, which is a national holiday (August 15th is one of the biggest holidays in Greece, as it’s the Assumption of Mary according to Christians).

This post isn’t about fashion but it has to do with one of my passions. That is summer cocktails. Not only do I like drinking them, but I also love making them. That’s something that I “inherited” from my father. He always liked to have all possible drinks at home, so he could make cocktails and other drinks for his friends. This way, everyone would be happy.

Today, I’ll write about my favourite kind of cocktails, sweet ones! Basically, margaritas but with a twist, making them more close to my personal likings.

If you are under-aged, this is not a post for you!

Basic Margarita Recipe (not pictured-altered to fit my likings!)

Instructions: In a cocktail shaker combine all ingredients with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a salt rimmed stemware or Martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

2 oz. tequila

2 oz. Cointreau

3 oz. lime juice

1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

Strawberry Margarita

Using the Basic Margarita recipe, use again 2 oz. Tequila, 2 oz. Cointreau, 2 oz. of lime juice this time and add some fresh strawberries (or strawberry juice if you like – about 3 oz. of it). Instead of salt, use sugar to rim you glasses. Garnish with a strawberry or a slice of lime again.
