hii!!!I am finally done with my university exams so no it's time for SUMMER!!hihi
I thought of making this post today cause it's soo hot here in Athens and I really cant wait to go to a beach!!
Coctails&smoothies is a must of summer and i think we all enjoy them!!
Let me know what you think of these recipes,i d love to hear you tried them !!

Add 1oz. of vodka
Add 1oz. of gin
Add 1oz. of rum
Fill with pink lemonade
Garnish with a lemon wedge



 Cosmopolitan

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add 1 1/4oz. of vodka
Add a splash of lime juice
Add a splash of triple sec
Add a splash of cranberry juice
Shake
Drain liquid into a martini glass
Garnish with a lime slice



Long Island Iced Tea

Combine ingredients in 16oz. cocktail glass
Add 1oz. of vodka
Add 1oz. of gin
Add 1oz. of rum
Add either one packet of sugar or 1/2oz. of bar syrup
Add sour mix until glass is half full
Add a splash of cola
Fill with ice
Garnish with Lemon or Strawberry


Strawberry Daiquiri
2oz rum
1oz lime juice
6 ice cubes
4 strawberries, sliced
2 tsp sugar



Οriginal Cuban Mojito from  http://www.tasteofcuba.com :


*1 teaspoon powdered sugar
*Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
*4 mint leaves
*1 sprig of mint
*Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces)
* 2 ounces club soda


Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass (often called a "collins" glass) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it. You'll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime.
