Foodie Friday: 12 Summer Cocktails

I’m not all that drinky. I’d rather expend calories on chocolate, and I figure I’m uninhibited enough. Although I rarely imbibe (though totally welcome those who do!), I have had a good sampling of summer cocktails this season. If I’m not drinking champagne, then I prefer a vodka cocktail with some sort of herb. I like to just ask the bartender to make one up for me, if there aren’t any on the menu. So far so good.

My sudden interest might be due to pinning all the yummy looking summer cocktails for Matouk’s Cocktail Hour Pinterest board. I’ve even started one of my own: Cocktails Pinterest board. Here are pretty summer cocktails that I’m tempted to try before the season is over. (Guess I’ll be kind of tipsy this week.)

To start, a creation called the Elderbubble Champagne Cocktail from my ever lovely friend Chantal Gordon and handsome husband Gordon Benoit, who mix drinks and grow plants in their funky backyard (check it out here), and document it all on their blog, The Horticult. The Elderbubble Champagne Cocktail is a recipe from  The Bubbly Bar, written by  Chantal’s friend, Maria Hunt, aka The Bubbly Girl. This champagne summer cocktail is first on my list.
