Summer Cocktail with Kate Spade

June 15, 2021

What’s the best way to cool down on a hot summer day? A refreshing cocktail, of course!

Summer Cocktail with Kate Spade

I love entertaining my friends, and one of the easiest (and most fun!) ways is to whip up some fun and fancy cocktails. I know that sometimes cocktail making can seem intimidating or even very masculine, but that doesn’t have to be the case! With my new Kate Spade NY glasses and shaker, making drinks can also be girly and fun! So why not try something pretty and feminine like this refreshing blackberry tequila lemonade I made for a nice little afternoon with the girls? I love this drink because it’s made with fresh fruit, and I almost always have the other 3 ingredients in my pantry – so easy!

Summer Cocktail with Kate Spade


Fresh blackberries
Silver tequila
Lemons – both for garnish and juice!
Fresh mint – for a little extra garnish


  • Start by muddling about 1/4 cup or six blackberries in the bottom of your cocktail shaker.
  • Pour your tequila and lemonade over the blackberries, and ice fresh lemonade works best!
  • Shake your cocktail a few times, pour it over ice + garnish, and enjoy!
