This post is sponsored by Santa Cruz Organic but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summer soon ending is most definitely deserving of a toast, and since fruity flavors are the way straight to my heart, I’ve got three simple cocktail recipes to share with you today in partnership with Santa Cruz Organic. So excited to be a Santa Cruz organic ambassador!! These cocktails are perfect too for hosting all of your “End of  Summer Dinner Parties” without breaking the bank!! We host so many events for friends and as much as I love it, I also have to watch my spending!

Think back to the last time you hosted a dinner party. When shopping for it, did you find yourself holding your breath the whole 5 minutes you spent at the cash register?!! Also when I say simple cocktails. I truly mean simple! Simple for the wallet, and simple to create. No more, party planners. Who wants to be chained to the bar cart station all day ?! I have fully embraced the art of a pre-batched, no-fuss cocktail this summer! And Santa Cruz Organic 100% Juices are my saving grace this season!!!!! Santa Cruz products use only the highest quality (Certified Organic and Non-GMO ingredients and processes) which really aligns with my brand. Santa Cruz Organic is so proud to be an official participant of the Non-GMO Project. From original Apple and Concord Grape Juices, to the more innovative Orange Mango Juice Blend, Santa Cruz Organic juices are sure to offer a refreshing variety. Packed in 32-ounce glass bottles, these tantalizing fruit juices are certified USDA organic and guaranteed to quench even the most selective of thirsts!! By offering high-quality organic products, the Santa Cruz Organic brand raises awareness for the health and economic benefits of organic agriculture. They have also been a leader in efforts to conserve water resources, build soil integrity and support a healthier ecosystem by helping growers make the decision to choose organic practices for their fields and orchards. Each year, they buy their fruit from hundreds of carefully selected organic growers, who represent thousands of acres dedicated to organic practices.

We absolutely love the juices and often create delish mocktails or just drink the juices with breakfast but of course today it’s all about the summer cocktails!! You are going to be so impressed by how easy these are!! Your guests will be super impressed too.

Anyone who knows me well knows I love a good champagne cocktail!!! You can make the simple syrup at home or you can use store-bought. In fact, we will totally cheat with this recipe and use the delish store-bought Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade because honestly, we don’t always have the extra time during the summer and finding ways to serve up something fun and delicious without killing ourselves in the kitchen is important, am I right?! Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades have long been a favorite summertime treat. Like all Santa Cruz Organic products, Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades are certified organic in accordance with the United States Department of Agriculture's organic regulations.  Bearing the official USDA Organic seal, Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades are guaranteed to be organic, from the ingredients through the recipe-batching process, and into the bottle.  This assures product integrity and supports efforts for environmental responsibility. The lemonade is so so refreshing ya’ll! And we would much rather mingle with our friends at this end of summer bash so we are even going to make this champagne lemonade cocktail a punch!!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups of Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade

  • 750 ml Champagne chilled (any kind..I love Prosecco)

  • 1 lemon sliced, plus 1 lemon, cut into wedges, for garnish. (it just looks so pretty)

Lemonade is truly the quintessential summer drink, no?! I so enjoy having fun versions of it too!!! This boozy mango lemonade is a super simple, yet delicious drink that screams summer. Made with Santa Cruz Organic Mango Lemonade and some tequila it’s perfect for sipping by a pool on a hot day or making for a party! It’s got a nice kick too with some fresh lime juice and Chile powder!! OLÉ! I love this Mexican twist to this refreshing cocktail. It’s so great with chips and guac too and tacos. Just FYI.
