July weekends are prefect for all-day hangouts in backyards, on rooftops, and of course, back porches.

Elsie and Emma of the always-inspirational A Beautiful Mess hosted their own back porch party, and we’re excited to share their recipes throughout the month!

Summer Nights Cocktail

    1/2 cup pineapple juice
    1/2 cup fresh cucumber juice
    10 fresh mint leaves
    1.5 ounces white rum

1) Combine all ingredients and stir to combine.

2) Pour over ice and serve!

This is a great cocktail to make ahead. You can easily quadruple the recipe and store in a small pitcher until you are ready to serve guests later that day.
