Beach Bum Cocktail Recipe

…with triple sec, pear, vodka and grenadine


Beach Bum Cocktail

I remember being around 18 years old with a thing for cocktails. Blame it on my Carrie Bradshaw phase, but somehow cocktails made me feel fancy. That phase is now over and for the last couple of years, I truly disliked the idea of a sweet alcohol. Up until now! I kind of like the idea of surprising my guests with a homemade drink. If my food is homemade why not do the same for the drinks I serve.

The Beach Bum cocktail is a sweet and refreshing cocktail. It is not a type of cocktail to serve during an evening dinner party, but it’s best served on a hot day when having a picnic, BBQ or just having friends over.
