  1. Blackberry Bramble via Feasting at Home: Blackberries, Gin, Blackberry Liquor, simple syrup, fresh lemon juice and ginger soda make this refreshing summertime cocktail more than worth the sticker bush prinks and cuts from blackberry picking.
  2. Peach Gin Fizz via Freutcake: This peach, simple syrup, gin and club soda fizz is kicked up a notch on the "pretty" factor with the garnish of sliced peaches and bright blue blueberries and think it's the perfect signature cocktail for a Peach and Navy Wedding.
  3. Grilled Peach & Rosemary Prosecco via Will Cook For Friends: Summer's not over yet, so don't store away that bar-b-que just yet.  This peach, rosemary simple syrup, and Prosecco cocktail brings out the natural sweetness of its peaches by grilling them. 
  4. Vodka Pear Lavender Lemonade via Sugar & Cloth: A perfect pair - pear and lavender! Pear juice, vodka, lemon juice, and lavender simply syrup are just like you and your fiance, a perfect pair!

  3. Frose´ via W&P Design: "Summer Water" aka Rose' is the highlight of this grown-up slushy cocktail featuring dry rose', lemon juice and Vergano Americano Chinato.
  4. Jalepeno Grapefruit Margarita via Eat Well 101: What gives a magargita more kick? Adding freshly sliced jalapeno! They're the perfect compliment to the sweetly sour grapefruit and tequila combination.

  4. Pineapple Sunset via Chef Savvy: This drink makes us think about lazy summer evenings spent "sitting on the dock of the bay" watching the sunset and talking about all your wedding and honeymoon plans with your bridesmaids. Grenadine layered with pineapple juice gives this cocktail it's sunset colors.
