Hot Girl Summer Cocktails

The heat of summer is in full force, and if you’re anything like us, you’re looking for any way to cool off! We’ve been busy at Packed Party prepping for some amazing new collection launches just around the corner, but in our free time, we’ve been taking trips to the pool (with our pool floats of course), the lake, the beach, basically anywhere with H2O. 

What’s a dip in the pool without a refreshing drink though, friends? One thing we can all agree on here at HQ, is that we carry some pretty cool drinkware! When we design all the different and special pieces, we only dream they’ll be filled with drinks that bring the same fun. Here are a couple of cocktails and refreshing drinks we’ve been loving lately that you can easily make to cool off this summer (and flaunt your cute Packed Party drinkware with, too!).

Spicy Moscow Mule and Disco Sipper

(Spicy) Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule is a classic, refreshing cocktail - easy to make and to drink – but we’ve added our own twist to match the heat of the summer. Of course the spice is optional, but hot girl summer is calling, so… can you handle the heat?

What you’ll need:

  • Ice
  • 2 oz (¼ cup) vodka
  • ½ oz (1 tablespoon) fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup chilled ginger beer
  • Lime wedge
  • Jalapeno


To make:

  • A couple of hours prior to making, slice your jalapeno, removing the seeds. Add to your lime juice to soak and add flavor. 
  • Pour vodka and spicy lime juice into your Disco Sipper over ice and stir. 
  • Top with ginger beer.
  • Garnish with lime wedge and add a couple of fresh jalapeno slices

    Hibiscus Gin Lemon Refresher and Sippin' Pretty cupstack

    If you’re looking for something refreshing, lemon with a little fruity flavor might just satisfy your cravings. The key to this cocktail is the easy-to-make hibiscus simple syrup and our Sippin’ Pretty cups. We especially love to enjoy this drink poolside.

    What you’ll need:

    • Ice
    • 2 oz gin
    • 1 oz lemon juice
    • Tonic water
    • Lemon wheel


    For the simple syrup:

    • Hibiscus tea
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup water


    To make:

    • For the simple syrup, just bring equal parts sugar and water to a boil. Toss in 1-2 hibiscus tea bags and cook down until the sugar has dissolved. Store in the fridge, and allow to cool before using it in your drink.
    • Pour your gin, lemon juice, and 1 oz of hibiscus simple syrup in your Sippin’ Pretty cup over ice. Top with tonic water, and garnish with a lemon wheel. 
    • Add a hibiscus flower if you’re feeling extra fancy!

      Strawberry Cucumber Water and Heart Sipper

      Cucumber Strawberry Water 

      As hot girls in our hot girl summer era, we don’t have all the time in the world to lay out (although believe us, this is also our dream). When you’re on the go, and needing something a little more than just basic water (bleh), we have JUST the refreshing drink for you. Use our Heart Sipper to keep your drink icy cold while you’re out doing your hot girl sh*t.

      What you’ll need:

      • Half a cucumber, sliced
      • 3-4 strawberries, sliced
      • Ice
      • Water


      To make:

      • Add ice to your sipper 
      • Put in your cucumber and strawberry slices
      • Pour in water
      • Give a little shake and head out the door!
