Happy World Cocktail Day!

Did you know that it’s World Cocktail Day!? Another perfect reason to experiment with a few cocktail creations I have been day dreaming about.

Since the weather is finally stable, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the sunny skies and this “holiday” other than playing bartender, picnic style! Don’t mind if I do!

I decided to use the Ruby Viniq flavor for my World Cocktail Day creation. Ruby really is so delicious, with natural strawberry flavors a bright and beautiful shimmer that just makes it perfect for any celebration occasion. I typically enjoy some fizz in my Viniq cocktails, but today I went with an extra refreshing cocktail with mint and strawberries, as 80 degree weather currently demands!

I love to enjoy my refreshing cocktails outside, while taking in some sun, of course. I know I’ve been waiting too long to be able to hang outside with my girls and enjoy some cocktails. So if you’ve been feeling the same way, here is what you’ll need to create this delicious drink for yourself:

Bring the Summer Ruby Mint


  • 2 oz Ruby Viniq
  • 2 oz Orange Juice
  • 3-4 mint leaves
  • 1-2 sliced strawberries
  • 1-2 lime slices, and more for garnishing


  • Chill all ingredients prior to serving
  • Lightly muddle the Ruby Viniq with mint leaves, lime and strawberries
  • Mix up ingredients in a shaker with ice
  • Pour chilled orange juice over the top and swirl to incorporate
  • Enjoy immediately!

hope you get out there and enjoy yourself with a refreshing cocktail before it gets too hot to sit outside. Now is the time. Visit BringTheShimmer.com and share your favorite Viniq moment, recipes, videos, selfies, THE WORKS! It’s basically a Viniq central, and my go-to for cocktail ideas!
