Barefoot and Boozy Cocktail Recipe

Since summer is my favorite season, I love hanging onto it as long as humanly possible.

I ban all things fall in my house until well after Labor Day…no pumpkin anything, no fall candles, no warm and cozy blankets.

Luckily I live in Northern California, where it’s been known to hit 80 degrees on Halloween. No jacket needed for this trick-or-treater, making it easy to pretend it’s summer just a bit longer.

One of the things I love best about summer is the beach. This Barefoot and Boozy Cocktail Recipe was designed to make you feel like you were digging your toes into the warm sand in a tropical location.

Created with fresh, tropical flavors like pineapple, coconut and orange, it’s the perfect light and refreshing summer cocktail.

It’s also super simple to make, just 3 ingredients stand between you and summer in a glass.

I found this pineapple flavored coconut water recently at Trader Joe’s and found that it makes the perfect cocktail mixer. It’s light but with a great coconut and pineapple flavor without being over powering.

    I love everything about this recipe (and the adorable OJ pitcher!)… and just happen to have these ingredients on hand. Hmmm, at 5 o’clock I think I know what I’ll be doing! 😉
