5 Summer Sips Fit for Socializing

These creative, light cocktails from Little Black Dress will help you get the season started off right

Make your summer cocktails a bit edgier with a little help from Little Black Dress Vodka.

In light of the warmer months, we’re stoked for all of the opportunities to host at home — and outdoors!

While a classic refreshing cocktail is always a great solution to a scorcher of a day, we’re looking to switch things up a bit when serving our guests. With a little help from Little Black Dress Vodka and lifestyle expert Maureen Petrosky, we’re doing just that.

The best cocktails are low in calories but still full of flavor and easy to create but with a gourmet appearance, and should be enjoyed with girlfriends, not while inside prepping. Created for the hostess, party-goer, and for girls on the go, enjoy these deliciously light vodka libations all summer long.

By infusing the Little Black Dress' four flavors — pineapple-honey, blueberry-pomegranate, black cherry vanilla, and classic — the options are truly endless and make for great conversation trying to figure out which you like best.

From brunch to the beach, find the cocktail that works best for whatever summer throws your way!
