What could be better on a hot summer evening than gathering in the back yard with your best girlfriends and enjoying some delicious cocktails? These cocktails are sure to be a welcomed addition to your little get together!

Gin cocktails with the girls

If you want to put together a fun evening for your girlfriends, spend a bit of time on your back yard. Get some citronella candles or torches to keep the bugs away. Gather some chairs around your firepit, if you have one. Create a playlist of fun music to play in the background.

Next, throw together some easy snacks. You can even cheat and pick up some stuff from the freezer section and heat it up right before your friends arrive. Of course, if you want to skip the heat and the bugs, you can gather indoors and watch some chick flicks, order a pizza, and chill with these delicious gin cocktails.

  1. I don’t know if I have ever tried gin, sounds like it can be mixed with so many different liquids. Nice cocktail recipes.

  2. The Blueberry Lavender Gin Fizz sounds wonderful. I am not even a big fan of gin but I think I need to try this one.

  3. Gin is my drink of choice and I think it goes so well with fruit flavours. I’d especially like to try the Lemon Basil Gin Fizz
