Cocktail Face Off

It’s officially summer – the weather in Chicago may not be “perfect” yet, but the street fests have begun and the Sunday-Funday drinking is in full effect. For this week’s Face Off I challenged Morgan to make a great summer-inspired Cocktail (I’m shocked we haven’t done this yet). If you are looking for some good tasting summer-time drinks that are easy to whip up we came up with 2 options for you…

I created a vodka drink with my favorite summer-time fruit – watermelon. Inspired by a drink I tried at Native Foods; when I sipped on their Watermelon Fresca all I could think about is how good it would have been with booze in it (is that wrong?)

Morgan chose to recreate a drink that we had one-too-many of when out for Sushi one night…once upon a time (ah the memories). Her Mint Pineapple Hi is simply pineapple juice and vodka, but calls for a unique twist of mint flavor.

So this summer pull up a lounge chair and get one of these cocktails in your hand, STAT.
