August may be on the tail end of the dog days of summer, but the month brings enough hot weather to remind us that it’s not quite fall yet. This drink is a deliciously fizzy sipper that’s easy to put together and delightful to sip on a hot day – simply perfect to pair with summer heat. The ingredient list may look long, but don’t let that deter you. It’s a super easy drink to make and a real show stopper … so pretty, and just as good as it looks!
This cocktail is based on the Spanish-style G&T, and is super customizable to whatever you have in your fridge or garden. Try playing with different flavors of simple syrup, or a variety of garnishes in the glass!
