It’s late August and the kids are headed back to school. That means it’s a time for parents to unwind. With fall and winter just ahead of us, but not necessarily something we want to talk about just yet, we still have time to focus on the important things—like what cocktails to mix up as an aperitif. That being said, the hot Texas summer sun only continues to tempt our taste buds, in search of something to soothe the soul and quench our thirst! Here are three cocktails that are easy to make and will keep you enjoying your summer season as long as it lasts!

1. Tequila Sangria

This uniquely Texas take on a traditional summer sangria takes its notes from tequila as opposed to wine or brandy. By following step-by-step through the easy directions, you’ll successfully arrive at a deliciously fruity cocktail which is not only juice-filled (healthy, right?) but has that perfect amount of alcohol to give it that zing! The website suggests finishing it off with Spanish red wine for not only the right look but also a great taste! A link to the recipe is available here.

2. Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade is actually one of the cocktails that are served in the Texas Hill Country, thanks to the great growing locales for this luscious little blue flower. This cocktail is a unique way to put a twist on one of the most popular summer drinks. Both refreshing as well as deliciously simple, this easy-to-make recipe is available at the link provided here.

If you’re a fan of watermelon (and who isn’t?) this cocktail has a wonderfully easy way of combining this summertime favorite fruit with a cake-like flavor (thanks to the vodka incorporated into the drink, which is vanilla-infused). It’s completely delicious and easy to make, and a link to the recipe is available here.
