I’m currently sitting in a rental house with my family. My Dad is reading some mystery novel on his kindle (it’s so cute how big the font is!), my mom is on the computer playing solitaire, my niece is up in her room watching YouTube videos and Casey and Cooper are watching the Red Sox game next to me.  I’m sitting here with a bourbon & ginger beer drink… contemplating headphones because I’d like to tune out baseball commentary. Uggh. Headphones mean I have to stand up. I don’t want to stand up.

My point is…we all have our own ways of relaxing. Mine usually comes in cocktail form. A cocktail signals that I am ready to chilllllllllll. All it takes is one and then I’m cool.  That’s why I’ve got one by my side right now.  This Summer Breeze Cocktail is my new favorite. I made it right before we left on our trip (such good packing fuel!).  It’s got a combination of fresh grapefruit juice, pineapple juice and gin. I used Hendrick’s because I like the cucumber notes. It helps make the drink kinda spa like.  It tastes like drinks by the pool with a little too much sun on your cheeks… and a dozen of magazines at your side. I see an OK Magazine in your stack…. It’s cook. No judgement.

    I need to start getting my cocktail game on. My version of “chill” is usually boxed wine but I’ve been feeling margaritas lately. Love how fresh this cocktail looks and I’m totally addicted to grapefruit juice too (drinking it as I type!)

    Sipping on a cold cocktail is definitely one of the ways I like to relax. I love this Summer Breeze cocktail, the pineapple and grapefruit sound so refreshing!

    I don’t know what’s worse – baseball commentary or golf commentary. Either way, I’m totally on board with drowning out the sound of it with a cocktail, and this one looks so delicious. Enjoy your vacation :)

    i feel like you might be my spirit animal – cocktails are SO my way to relax too (and i completely agree with the packing fuel statement)! these are so pretty, I can’t wait to try!

    What other juice could I use in place of Grapefruit? Due to a medication I take, grapefruit is a no go. This drink looks really yummy!

  • Tricia

    Just looking at your drink photos is enough to make me chilllllll. So inviting.

    I love fruity drinks! They’re delicious and yet so dangerous in that way that they sneak up on you! 😉

    Gin is my number one relaxer! I would love it if you would link this up to Tipsy Tuesday at Grey is the New Black – a weekly cocktail link up.
