Watermelon Lime Mocktails

Meet the 2-ingredient, easy-breezy, ultra-refreshing watermelon mocktail that we have been loving this summer.

This recipe came about a bit on accident when we had a quarter of a leftover watermelon in the fridge that was on its last leg.  I decided to give it a quick dice and pop it in the freezer to save it.  Then one evening when we were making Mexican food for dinner, I decided to blend up the frozen watermelon with a bunch of fresh lime juice to make some slushies to go with our meal, and rimmed our glasses with some Tajín to give them more of a zesty mocktail twist.

And you guys, the combo was fantastic.  You’ve gotta try these mocktails! ♡

This recipe literally just takes a few minutes to blend up.  You’re welcome to make them as sweet and watermelon-y or tart and lime-y as you prefer.  If you feel like adding an extra kick, you could also toss a slice of fresh jalapeño in there too.  But however you make them, they are sure to taste so summery and fun.  And our friends all agree that they legit feel like a festive drink, even without the alcohol!

Here’s how to make them…

My favorite way to make a classic 3-ingredient gimlet cocktail, naturally sweetened with honey simple syrup.

Tgif, friends!  I vote that we toast the weekend with one of my favorite fresh and easy warm-weather cocktails…

…a classic gimlet. ♡

(Yes, for all of you podcast listeners out there, the gimlet was a gin cocktail long before it was a media network!)  If you happen to be new to this drink, a classic gimlet is traditionally made with gin, fresh lime juice and simple syrup.  It’s quick and easy to mix in a cocktail shaker or mason jar with ice, and then it is traditionally served with a slice of lime.  So simple!

I prefer to naturally sweeten gimlet cocktails with honey simple syrup, whose botanical flavor I believe pairs more beautifully with gin than traditional white sugar simple syrup.  You are also welcome to sub vodka for gin, of course, if you prefer a vodka gimlet.  And if you feel like getting a bit creative and customizing your own gimlet, I’ve also included many other idea below for other herbs, liqueurs or botanicals that would be delicious add-ins too.

It’s a simple three-ingredient recipe that should be in every cocktail lover’s back pocket.  So grab your favorite bottle of gin, and let’s make a gimlet!

Cranberry Mulled Wine

Looking for a fun and festive cocktail to serve this holiday season?

This cranberry mulled wine recipe is here for you, friends! ♡

If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you already know that I’m a huge fan of serving mulled wine for holiday gatherings, since (1) it only requires a few minutes of prep and can serve so many people (2) guests always love being greeted at the door with a steaming mug to warm up their cold fingers (3) mulled wine is guaranteed to make your home smell a-ma-zing, and (4) it’s simply so delicious this time of year!  That said though, after having made my classic mulled wine recipe for so many years, I have been experimenting this year with a few fun variations.  And I have to say, this cranberry mulled wine is my new fave!

It’s made with all of the usual suspects — a bottle of red (or white) wine, a splash of brandy (optional, but highly recommended), citrus slices, plus a few simple warming spices.  But for this cranberry version, I’ve also added in a cup of cranberry juice and a knob of fresh ginger, whose flavors pair beautifully with the mulling spices.  And instead of sweetening my mulled wine with my usual brown sugar or maple syrup, I’ve taken a tip from a reader and have been using molasses as a sweetener, which is downright delicious. (Although as always, please feel free to use any kind of sweetener that you prefer.)  Finally, I’ve been adding fresh cranberries and rosemary as a festive extra garnish this year, which are cute as well as delicious.

And well — as Chandler would say — could this mulled wine be any more festive?!

Let’s make some!

Whiskey Lemonade Cocktail

When life gives you lemonade

…I vote we make whiskey lemonade cocktails for happy hour! ♡

This simple 3-ingredient whiskey cocktail has long been one of my faves, especially for summertime entertaining.  I love it because it always tastes super refreshing, especially served up on the rocks with a hint of fresh rosemary or mint.  It can be made with either homemade or store-bought lemonade, and adjusted to taste as sweet or as tart as you prefer.  It’s also an absolute breeze to make in less than 5 minutes, whether you’re mixing up a single serving or batching a big pitcher for a crowd.  And mostly, it’s just delightful!

If you are a fan of bourbon (or really, any type of whiskey) and lemonade, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

The BEST 3-ingredient homemade lemonade recipe -- naturally sweetened with maple syrup or honey, and easy to make in just 5 minutes! | gimmesomeoven.com #lemonade #drink #summer #juice

Is there anything more refreshing in the summertime than an ice-cold glass of lemonade?!

Actually, yes — an ice-cold glass of this freshly-squeezed, naturally-sweetened, 100%-from-scratch homemade lemonade! ♡

I mean, first of all, nothing beats the flavor of freshly-squeezed lemon juice in my book.  I can taste the difference it makes in a batch of lemonade every single time.  (And with a good handheld citrus juicer, it only takes a minute or two to juice enough lemons for an entire pitcher!)  I also love making lemonade homemade because it gives me the option to choose natural sweeteners like maple syrup or honey, instead of the gobs and gobs of white sugar that usually come with the store-bought varieties.  And of course, when making homemade lemonade, I appreciate being able to control how much sweetener is added.  So I can make mine as zingy and tart (my preference!) or as mild and sweet as a group of friends might prefer.

More than anything, though, I just love making homemade lemonade from scratch because it’s a breeze!  All you need are 3 easy ingredients to make a batch.  And when naturally sweetened with maple syrup, there’s no need to simmer a simple syrup on the stove to dissolve the sugar.  Just juice your lemons, stir in the maple syrup and water, and a big pitcher can be ready to go in just 5 minutes or so.  So simple, and so delicious.

So whether you have kiddos who are hoping to host their own little lemonade stand this summer, or you just happen to be craving a nice cold pitcher to serve with dinner tonight, gather up a batch of fresh lemons and crank up the Beyoncé and let’s make a batch together!
