Cocktails on the patio don’t get much simpler than this cool, refreshing Cucumberita.
Last baseball game of the season? C’mon over!
What? A promotion!? Congratulations!
Or maybe you simply made it through a particularly stressful day at work? Cheers to that!
Whatever the reason, coming together with friends and family shouldn’t be nerve-wracking, especially during the lazy days of summer when temperatures are warm and daylight stretches late into the evening. Fire up the grill, grab some snacks from the pantry and settle in for some fun. Now no party is complete without a cocktail (at least at my house!), and this last-minute fiesta can go off without a hitch with a little help from BACARDI® Mixers. This cool, crisp Cucumberita, made with BACARDI® Mixers Margarita mix, comes together in minutes. How’s that for easy entertaining?
This Cucumberita is super refreshing – perfect for a hot summer evening – but make sure you check out InstantParty.com for loads of other cocktail ideas that use BACARDI® Mixers’ Margarita, Strawberry Daiquiri and Piña Colada mixes.
