We at Lulu and Georgia are all about savoring every bit of the summer. We're looking to make the most of the season, indoors and out. That means friendly brunches, long days in the sun and by a pool, and sunset dinners in the backyard or on the terrace. Make those times a little livelier with a refreshing summer cocktail (or mocktail). We have done our research—so you don't have to—and we want to share five of our favorite new recipes for you to try this season. These drinks are a mixture of spicy, sweet, tart, and bubbly, and perfect for your next gathering or just to sip on at home. An inspired twist on the classic Paloma, this Aperol Paloma adds a bit of orange zest and bitters. Pair it with a lofty wine glass to show off its rich color. We picked up this Melon and Honey Sangria recipe from our friend, @bevsbybeverly, and the richness of flavors and the crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc make for a bold yet refreshing white sangria. The fluted glass tumblers and seagrass-wrapped Shelly Pitcher add plenty of visual and textural impact. Served in our uniquely detailed Rian Ripple Wine Glasses, this Lemonade Summer cocktail adds citrusy and aromatic notes to freshly made lemonade. In the mood for a non-alcoholic drink but still want a festive look? Dress up our Summer Mocktail with lemon zest and the jewel-toned appeal of our Estelle Stemware. Finally, for another reinvention of a classic, try our Elderflower Old Fashioned. Served in our fluted champagne coupes, it's floral, sweet, and thoroughly refreshing.
