Rosè lovers this is for you. Make your classic glass of Rosè just a little more refreshing for a lake day by topping off your glass with 25% soda water (just eyeball it). This bubbly drink is perfect for a hot Texas day.
Make a simple gin fizz with just 2 shots of gin topped off with a lemon-flavored sparkling water. It may not be fancy or your classic gin fizz with simple syrup and egg white, but it does the job without the hassle!
This tropical drink is the perfect refreshing option for a hot summer day. Just fill your cup with 1.5 shots of Malibu rum, a splash of pineapple juice, top with sprite, and enjoy!
