Heeeeeey guys!

Happy almost 3 day weekend! We just have to survive today and tomorrow and then we’ll get to relax, grill up some burgers, and drink some sangria!

Speaking of, I posted this delicious Pink Berry Sangria over at eBay and I made a list of cute things that would be perfect for your summer wine party!

Make sure you hop over and check out the really easy recipe!

Pineapple Rosemary Crush - easy cocktail recipe with pineapple, rosemary, and sparkling wine! It looks fancy but it's inexpensive and serves a crowd!

Today I’m heading up to Salt Lake City (OMGMOUNTAINS! I might just stay forever!) for a conference so I have to stick with my tradition of posting a cocktail on days when I fly.

I actually really enjoy flying but I’m also that person that has a minor panic attack with every bump. Which is why we talk cocktails on days that I fly. Because I’ll probably spend most of the flight wishing I had one.

The conference is going to be so much fun though. I’m rooming with my bestie Nicole and we coordinated our flights so that we land at the same time and can navigate SLC together. And there is going to be SO MUCH FOOD. I plan on gaining at least 10 pounds.

Seriously excited to get there. Follow me on instagram and snapchat (amandalivesay) to keep up!

Pineapple Rosemary Crush - easy cocktail recipe with pineapple, rosemary, and sparkling wine! It looks fancy but it's inexpensive and serves a crowd!

This is the easiest fancy-ish cocktail you’ll ever make.

The rosemary makes it fancy, right?

I think so. Rosemary makes everything look fancy.

It’s just pineapple, rosemary, a bottle of sparkling wine, and some ginger ale. That’s it! It’s so pretty and so tasty and perfectly refreshing for hot summer days.

Raspberry Margaritas - use fresh or frozen raspberries to make these easy and delicious margaritas! Perfect summer drink!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

It occurred to me yesterday that I didn’t make a single recipe in preparation for Mother’s Day so I’m also pitching these Raspberry Margaritas as the perfect thing to make for your mom this Sunday.

I mean, moms love margaritas, right?

At least every mom I know loves margaritas.

My mom friends really, really love margaritas.

And it’s pink! Moms definitely love pink things!

It’s a fact.

Raspberry Margaritas - use fresh or frozen raspberries to make these easy and delicious margaritas! Perfect summer drink!

Frozen margaritas are so easy because you literally just pour everything in a blender and press go.

There’s no “Do you shake or stir margaritas?” google search necessary.

There’s no fussy muddling of raspberries happening here.

Just dump everything in and blend until it reaches a good consistency.

I love drink recipes like that.

These are really refreshing and perfect for this time of year when the raspberries are looking all fat, juicy, and delicious! If you happen to end up with a not-so-sweet batch of raspberries, a tiny bit of simple syrup will help sweeten your margaritas.

Watermelon Mint Margaritas - the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night!

I feel like I’ve been so behind on holidays this year. I didn’t post a single Mardi Gras recipe, I think I posted one for Easter, and I can’t name another holiday that’s passed to save my life.

It’s safe to say that if there were more, I definitely missed them.

But I will not miss Cinco de Mayo! We’re starting a couple weeks early so I can squeeze in all the margaritas and melted cheese I can come up with.

(I’ve also started planning for National S’mores Day. I may miss all the other holidays but you know I’ll be here for margaritas and s’mores.)

Watermelon Mint Margaritas - the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night!

I’ve been obsessed with watermelon for the last couple summers and it looks like it will be continuing this year since I couldn’t wait to share these Watermelon Mint Margaritas with you!

They’re really easy and yes, they start with fresh watermelon. No fake stuff here! You just need the watermelon and then you make a quick mint simple syrup, stir in some tequila and lime juice, and you’re done!

I bet they would be delicious next to a pool or on the beach or basically anywhere that it’s hot! And look how pretty they are!

Pineapple Blackberry Mojitos - the BEST summer cocktail recipe! Pineapple, blackberries, and mint are crushed and then mixed with rum, lime juice, and sparkling water!

It is really Monday again?

How does this keep happening to us?

Ugggghhhh.

I hope you had a relaxing and/or exciting weekend and hopefully Monday won’t be too bad to you. But just in case, I made us some Blackberry Pineapple Mojitos.

Pineapple Blackberry Mojitos - the BEST summer cocktail recipe! Pineapple, blackberries, and mint are crushed and then mixed with rum, lime juice, and sparkling water!

These are really, really easy to make. You just use the handle of a wooden spoon to mash a bunch of blackberries, pineapple, and mint together and then dump in some rum, lime juice, and sparkling water. Throw some ice in and top it with a bunch of mint so it looks fancy. Done.

It’s going to become your official summer drink!
