Summer Fun Pinterest Challenge....

I am joining a group of very talented bloggers to recreate something I have pinned, using this month's theme: "Summer Fun"!  Their links are at the bottom of this post.

The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to actually make something that we have pinned! 

And just a reminder:

I have a Pinterest file for cocktails - you can find that HERE, so I decided to try a few!

             Beachy Breeze

 1 oz Midori (melon liqueur) 

1 oz Malibu (coconut rum) 

6 oz Pineapple juice. 

I love pineapple juice....

...so this cocktail is right up my alley!

This is perfect for a hot afternoon pre-dinner drink!

           Gilligan's Island

3 oz. orange juice
3 oz. cranberry juice
1 oz. coconut rum OR coconut vodka 
1 oz. peach schnapps

This cocktail makes me wish I was on an island!

It's fruity and refreshing!

Here's how I made the garnish for the Beachy Breeze:

I cut out little flowers of melon with a mini cookie cutter.....

...and used the Gin-iper Branch from Raw Rutes.

  1. The melon garnish is so clever, Patti! Make mine with regular rum or vodka and I'm in. I'm not a fan of coconut.

  2. All of these drinks sounds so delicious, Patti!! As I was reading your post I thought of making some and just sitting out on the patio just as the sun is going down having a few - it also has me thinking I'm relaxing on a island somewhere!

  3. Patti, you are so funny! I love the quote about rum, LOL! Cute post!

  4. I definitely want to try these drinks! I love any beverage with pineapple juice! Pinning!

  5. Very fun cocktails, I love the way you put the straw through the umbrella! I also love love that coconut rum liqueur, very tasty stuff! Cheers Patti!

  6. Although I don't imbibe, I must say your summer drinks look refreshing and show a fun island vibe!

  7. I would drink any of these! You'd make an excellent bartender!

  8. They sounds good and the garnish is just lovely. I was just about to ask what you'd used when I scrolled down and got to the bit where you explain it was melon!

  9. Looks refreshing. I also like pineapple juice.

  10. Gilligan's Island sounds right up my alley! The garnish is neat!
