Look, not every sweltering-hot summer day calls for a hard seltzer or refreshing shandy (we’re looking at you, Giada De Laurentiis). Sometimes, a bright, fresh cocktail is just what the day calls for; and according to Pinterest’s July trends, that’s exactly what we’ll find — and more.
“With summer in full swing and many bars closed, cocktail mixology is clearly the most chill DIY trend of the season,” the trend report states.
Take one quick scroll through Pinterest for cocktail recipes, and you’ll notice four summer cocktail trends this month: They’re colorful and color-changing, thanks to an Asian tea called butterfly pea flower tea that starts blue and transforms into a lavender hue once mixed with lemon (it’s magical); they’re healthier, embracing fresh, seasonal ingredients such as strawberries; they’re sugar bombs, with some topped with cotton candy, Starburst, and other sweet treats; and some even nix the alcohol altogether.
Ahead are the most popular cocktails on Pinterest this month. And trust us, you’ll want to try every one of them.
