We at the Cary Company have provided 10 of our favorite summertime recipes that we think you and your guests will love!
Tequila Blackberry Lemonade
Our top choice is for our tequila lovers out there! This recipe is perfect for any pool parties or barbeques! It combines muddled blackberries, silver tequila, lemonade, and lemon garnish to make refreshing spiked lemonade! View Recipe.
We loved the next recipe because of its unique seasonal name, Shoo-Fly! Combining ginger beer, bourbon, orange slices, mint, and lemon juice this drink gives a refreshing spicy taste. Ginger drinks have been a popular choice this year and if you want to change it up from a Moscow Mule this is the drink for you! View Recipe.
White Sangria In a Jar
We couldn’t forget a recipe for all of our wine lovers out there. This white sangria recipe combines white wine, apples, blackberries, lemons, strawberries and rum but you can customize and change the type of fruits however you like. Now if you have ever tasted sangria you know the best part of the drink is the infused fruit on the bottom. The problem with making the drink in a pitcher is your guests are not poured any fruit. To solve this problem, this recipe was made to serve individually in mason jars with a proportioned amount of fruit in each! View Recipe.
Sweet Iced Tea
There are plenty of non-alcoholic drink options you can make as well as alcoholic ones. Sweet Iced Tea is a smooth simple selection for you that will quench any summer thirst. The great thing about this recipe is you can serve it warm over ice or refrigerated and chilled. View Recipe.
Peach Pie Moonshine
If you are looking for a sweeter twist to your summer drinks this classic peace-pie moonshine recipe will do the trick. When served in a mason jar this drink is a great gift to give to your friends or family. Moonshine drinks, made with vodka, have been becoming more and more popular due to the TV show “Moonshiners” and because of its delicious flavor! View Recipe.
Mojitos are a fizzy alternative to your classic rum drinks. With a hint of mint, lime and cherries this drink is light and smooth. This recipe does take a bit longer to make but we promise it’s worth it! Your taste buds will be thanking you later! View Recipe.
