Anxious for spring and summer to arrive during this weekend’s heatwave?  Capture the feeling of spring and summer in your cocktails any time of the year! Here are two drinks that I think will have you running around in shorts and sandals!

Not your grandma’s fruit punch:

Makes four drinks:

4 cups water

2 TAZO passion tea bags

4 ounces (4 shots) Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum or similar fruit alcohol

4 cups club soda (Schwepps or Canada Dry)


In the microwave, heat the cups of water until hot and add the tea bags. Let the tea steep for about five minutes if you desire a strong tea flavor. For weaker tea, let the tea bags steep for two minutes or less.

Let the tea come to room temperature before pouring over ice. Divide your ice evenly into four glasses and measure the tea evenly into each glass. Add one shot of the cherry rum and top off the glass with roughly a cup of club soda. Depending on the size of your glasses, feel free to add more or less of any ingredient depending on your taste!

Blue Lizard in Paradise:

Makes one drink:

1 ounce (shot) UV Blue Vodka

2 scoops lemon sherbet

1 cup club soda (Schwepps or Canada Dry)

Add two scoops of lemon sherbet in a glass and pour club soda and shot over the top. Watch as the sherbet melts and swirls into the UV Blue! Not only will it taste great, but it’ll entertain you as well!

Cheers to spring-time and warm weather!
