Have you ever been with a group of friends at a new-to-you bar and everyone is already set to order, so you panic and have to pick something quick? Ha. When this happens to me I almost always just pick a cocktail that has grapefruit in the description. I feel like you can’t go wrong!

This is probably why one of my favorite, easy-to-make-at-home, cocktails is a Salty Dog (which is basically a Greyhound but with a salted rim). It’s simple, tart, and totally refreshing.

But the weather is currently heating up in my neck of the woods (literally my house backs up to the woods—ha), so if it’s not chilled, I’m not interested. And the only thing better than a chilled cocktail is probably a frozen one! Feels so special.

We are currently working on sprucing up our back patio and I can’t wait until we’re finished and we get to sit outside as the sun sets and sip a few cocktails together this summer! xo. Emma
