We think summer fruits are best when eaten at their peak. And what better way to take full advantage of all summer has to offer than by featuring summer’s bounty in your favorite cocktail?'

Check out these yummy drink recipes to try today with some of summer’s finest fruits: berries! From succulent strawberries, to tart blackberries, to sweet raspberries and beyond, check out these scrumptious cocktails to try out on your back porch on a cool summer’s night!

Lemonade and Berry Punch

Who doesn’t love a good punch recipe? Making a cocktail in a big batch is perfect for summer get-togethers where you’d rather be mingling than mixing up drinks all night. Fresh raspberries and blueberries in a refreshing spiked lemonade punch is surely a winning recipe!

Refreshing Ciroc Berry Cocktail

Ciroc Red Berry Vodka is so outstanding it barely needs any mixers! To really create a summery feel, we paired it with fresh orange juice and sweet cranberry juice. If you really want to add a ‘wow’ factor, to this delicious berry cocktail, toss in some frozen raspberries and strawberries instead of ice! They’ll keep your drink cold and offer up a yummy treat to eat at the end of your drink!

Muddled Blackberries and Gin

Fragrant gin and the tartness of muddled blackberries are brilliant together. What makes this cocktail even more special? A splash of dry champagne. Convivial has the full recipe, and the delicious suggestion to serve up this cocktail with a summery entree dish like chicken with grilled plums or salmon with buerre blanc.

Raspberry Chambord and Vodka Cocktail

Cold, tart and potent, this torch shot is the perfect way to start off your summer. One of the best aspects of this Chambord and Vodka cocktail with delicious muddled raspberries  is that it can be made in advance and stored in the freezer.
