From Memorial Weekend BBQ’s to Labor Day house parties, summertime means gathering your neighbors, family, and friends together for good food, good drinks, and good laughs.

Tequila

My younger sister recently became engaged and to celebrate she hosted an outdoor party with our family and her new in-laws. It was a perfectly warm day for an outdoor event and to top if off, her in-laws had the most delicious cocktails ready to go. After taking a big sip, I immediately asked her fiance what was in them and was pleasantly surprised to hear they used tequila since it’s not usually my libation of choice…especially on hot Summer days! I was amazed how the flavor was so refreshing and light that I couldn’t get enough. It was similar to a Paloma but with a fruity/spicy twist! In honor of National Tequila Month, I thought it would be fun to share this recipe with our readers so that you can recreate it for your gatherings this Summer. Enjoy!

June has always been one of my favorite months for many reasons: June marks the beginning of summer, the end of school and the perfect time for a mid-year weekend getaway to blow off some steam. Packing can be challenging because we naturally want to pack our entire closets in a tiny suitcase– I mean you have to be ready for absolutely every scenario! But not to worry, I’ve got you covered with the ultimate girls weekend packing guide.

The temperatures are rising and the forecast is hot, hot, hot. While you’re having fun in the sun, be sure to remember that staying hydrated is important for looking and feeling great all summer long. Water keeps your skin looking great while helping your body to naturally detoxify. If you’re tired of plain water on its own, try out a delicious infused water recipe instead. Infused water, sometimes called spa water or detox water, is a simple and delicious way to quench your thirst naturally — without any added sugar or artificial flavors. Below, three easy ways to DIY your own infused water. All you need is a mason jar!
