Summertime Cocktails for Mom

I’m a Mom and I love to have a cocktail every once in a while. Seriously, what Mom doesn’t? It is imperative for survival! On warm summer nights, I love to kick back, relax and  have a “spirit” on my deck. Below are three of my favorite drinks. They’re in order from least strong to “these kids are going to drive me bat shit crazy!”

Mommy’s Moscato – I love this drink. It’s sweet, refreshing and not too strong. I’ve oftentimes made it for when we have guests over – OK, kids birthday parties. Don’t judge me.

Mommy’s Moscato


  • Cupcake Vineyards Moscato d’Asti
  • Sprite Zero
  • Frozen Raspberries


Mix equal parts of the Cupcake Vineyards Moscato d’Asti and Sprite Zero. Garnish with frozen raspberries and enjoy.

Mommy’s Margarita

Mix 1 ounce of Jose Cuervo Tequila Silver (I prefer the tequila silver, but you could use the tequila gold),  3 ounces of Sprite Zero and the juice of a lime. Pour over ice and enjoy.
