This blood orange mocktail is perfect for summer parties, holidays and preggos + 60 summertime BBQ recipes from your favorite food bloggers! #mocktail #summer #drink #bbq #recipe

Memorial Day is the unofficial first day of summer so what better way to kick it off then to have a giant feast!

This week I’m joining 50 great food bloggers to bring you the ULTIMATE Summertime BBQ Recipe Collaboration! In the list below you’ll find all sorts of awesome BBQ recipes ranging from appetizers and side dishes to entrees, beverages and desserts!

But FIRST, let me introduce you to the Blood Orange Mocktail.

What’s a mocktail? It’s a non-alcoholic beverage that is perfect for anyone, especially preggos like me!

Not preggo and looking for a little fun? No problem – just toss in a shot of vodka to this recipe and you’ll be good to go.

You can serve this mocktail in 2 ways:

  1. Pour all juices in margarita glass and add in crushed ice.
  2. To get a really creamy drink, skip the ice and put in a big scoop of orange sorbet instead. Now you’ve got yourself a liquid dessert!

Either way you choose, you’re sure to love this drink throughout the summer and into the fall. Enjoy!

  5. This looks so delicious! I am a firm believer that you need as many mocktails as cocktails at parties for any non-drinkers! Love this. Thanks for being a part of the Great Blogger BBQ!
