6 Perfect Spring Cocktails! ft. Diva Named Dom

Spoiler alert: I failed. Again.

Hello, my beautiful internet sell-outs – how’s it hanging? Today, we’re going to talk about cocktails. If you’re of legal age (or, in Britain, above 14. Skins isn’t that far off) you have probably been introduced to the beauty that is a cocktail. Well, there is no better time to get together with your girls, have a chat and sip on a cocktail than in Spring.

In the spirit of the sun finally putting an appearance in, today’s post is in collaboration with the awesome DivaNamedDom – one of my favourite blogging girls. Not only is Dom beautiful and sassy – her blog content rocks and she has her shit together. If you aren’t already following her . . . I mean, come on. The link is right there – get going! (And check out her Spring cocktails too!)

Today’s post is . . . well, not what I originally intended for it to be. Today’s post was supposed to be me sharing a cocktail recipe, but to be quite frank that went awfully.

In my defence: alcohol.

You know how licking the batter when you’re baking means you can get salmonella? Licking the batter while making cocktails means you just get drunk. Someone drunk trying to get measurements right? We can all see how that didn’t work. Mia’s Mojitos were just big nos.

(Also . . . that sounds like a great nickname for my boobs. “Mia’s mojitos“. I’m trademarking that shit.)

Anyways, as I didn’t want to let the wonderful Dom down with my newly empty post, I had to think quickly. How could I write about Spring Cocktails when my allocated time to making a Spring Cocktail . . . failed? I couldn’t take a day off work to get drunk. (Well, I mean, I can – but I’m already doing that next month to go to Ibiza, so I have to save up my drunk holidays, you know?)

So I did what we all do in times of “shit, I’m actually pretty bad at this” – I turned to Pinterest and looked at people who were good at it. Without further ado, I present to you some of the best Spring Cocktails you can make this weekend!

1. “The Love Potion Cocktail” – Lark & Linen

Homemade blackberry syrup is the secret ingredient to whipping up this pretty-in-pink champagne cocktail. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs to add an herb-infused flavor and a leafy-green flora. This lively cocktail is the perfect way to toast the season.


2. Strawberry Chamomile Pamola – Half Baked Harvest

6. Raspberry Mango Spring Sangria – The Speckled Palate

Raspberry Mango Spring Sangria sings of springtime flavors! Gather friends for this delightfully simple sangria that is oh-so-delicious, yet easy to make. #recipe #cocktail


I’m not going to lie, until I was looking for these I didn’t know there were edible flowers – and you guys know that we’re going to be seeing a lot of recipes involving flowers now.

Okay, those are my top picks for Spring Cocktails – honestly, anything fruity, or with gin is a big ole’ yes from me. Plus . . . I mean, all of these are super pretty too. So you aren’t just drinking, you’re also investing in your ‘gram aesthetic. Don’t forget to go and check out Dom’s spring cocktails too; we’re going to get you guys lit.

  1. Over here at about 14 we start borrowing cars… off those beautiful strangers in vivaldi’s green coat. Probably why you sent many of us over here in the first place.

      1. I was once told that you can sober up a horse thief… and he becomes a bloody good horse thief πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸŽπŸŽ

    1. You will be… you will be (said Yoda)
      You never know what a care is really capable of until someone who doesn’t own it is driving it.
      One of my personal rules.

    2. Oh I love cocktails in Spring/Summer time, definitely perfect time to have them. I usually go ham with them on my holiday, but when I’m going to club also. I need to give these a go, they seem amazing. xx

    3. πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ these drinks look sooo intriguing! I love your pictues and the recipes seem pretty easy. I think I’ll try the rosemary grapefruit n gin this weekend. Great post!!!!

    4. I LOVE me some Spring and Summer cocktails! Nothing says Summer and celebration, like a great Marg or Sangria. These drinks sound SO yummy! Especially the paloma! <3

      1. Haha I’m thinking perhaps you should have done mocktail recipes instead! All the cocktails look delicious – I love gin and pink lemonade personally. xx

        1. You know, Hannah, that was my initial idea – and I was going to be like “healthy spring cocktails”… but then .. my personality kicked in and was like “mia….ALCOHOL” ;-; xx

        2. So much prettiness! It’s funny, my parents have all these fancy glasses like the first picture and we used to call them old lady glasses growing up. Thank goodness they didn’t listen to us. I’ve got to go steal them now and make some of these cocktails. I wanna get tipsy. πŸ™‚

        3. Lol I would never think to name my boobs, you are too funny, Mia! πŸ˜‚ All of the drinks you chose are so pretty!!! I’d especially like to try #3, yum!
