Gurl—it’s already August. That means you have exactly less than a month to get your summer on, and fast! Head to the beach, head to the pool, or just simply head outdoors to catch some rays and enjoy some of the last of the hottest days of the year. Grab your sunscreen, shades, and speedo and make the most out of your August.
The only thing you’re missing now—other than a hot speedo-clad muscle god oiling you up—is a delicious adult beverage to wet your whistle, get you a nice buzz going, and keep you hydrated during all that heatwave you got going on in your sexy skimpy swim gear.
Turn up the heat of your August with the Sparkling Summer cocktail. Just enough bubbles to make you feel fancy and just enough citrus zest to make you feel like you’ve been whisked away to some tropical island. The Sparkling Summer is all you need to get you through the rest of the month.
- ½ oz simple syrup
- Orange twist
- Lemon twist
Squeeze the oils from the lemon and orange twists into a pint glass. Drop the twists into the glass. Add simple syrup. Fill the glass ¾ full of ice. Fill with prosecco. Stir. Add another layer of crushed ice and add 5-7 dashes of bitters. Swizzle to create a layered effect on top. Top with more crushed ice.
