I don’t know about you, but with the summer sun finally gracing our bar stools I’ve been as thirsty as ever. I could place the blame on enabling friends who love to frolic in the heat as much as I do, but I’m just as guilty. there’s something about sitting in the sun smelling grilled chicken that makes you want to indulge in something clean, cool, and wet. usually that means a cold beer or refreshing white wine loaded with calories and environmentally hurtful ingredients. definitely a diva don’t.

fear not, chicas. thanks to our friends at Social Diva, your one-stop connection for everything divalicious, we can get the party started without making a huge thundering footprint on our Earth. after all, Mother Nature is the ultimate diva. get your drink on with these organic liquors and wines. I’ll have another!

Mix More than Mojitos: Cuca Fresca, an award-winning premium cachaça made from organically grown sugarcane, makes a mean Miami Blue: Combine 1.5 oz. Cuca Fresca Premium Cachaça, 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao, 1/2 oz. pineapple juice, 1/2 oz. simple syrup, and a splash of fresh sour mix in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, then strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist. Now, that’s what we call a Miami Vice!

Turn Up the Tequila: 4 Copas are the world’s only certified organic (and tres yummy) tequilas and, if that weren’t enough, the manufacturers also recycle waste materials into organic fertilizer. Pump things up with a 4 Copas Pomegranite Margarita: mix 2 oz. of 4 Copas Reposado, 1/2 oz. fresh organic lime juice, 2 oz. fresh pomegranate juice, and 1/2 oz. of 4 Copas Organic Blue Agave Nectar in a shaker filled with ice. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass and serve topped with a splash of club soda. Shots are optional.

Very Chic Vodka: Certified USDA Organic, Crop Organic Vodka, is harvested from soil free of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and chemicals, and distilled so no carbon treatment or charcoal filtering is required. For your next summer bash, grab a pitcher and make their Organic Vodka Watermelon Cooler: Muddle 4-5 pieces of watermelon, a handful of fresh mint and 1/2 part agave nectar in a pitcher, then add in 2 parts Crop Organic Artisanal Vodka and 1 part lime juice. Serve over ice and enjoy the compliments on your bartending, Diva.

Wild on Wines: If you’re feeling like a nice glass of wine, we’re fans of the Yalumba Organic Viognier 2007 or the Marimar Torres Russian River Estate Pinot Noir 2003. If it’s more of a dessert wine you crave, Port Finest Reserve Casal dos Jordoes is a fabulous organic port that is certified vegan. Either way, feel free to sip, guilt-free.

Mad for Mocktails? Don’t leave your non-imbibing guests out on all the eco-fabulous fun! Make a Kiwi Fesper: muddle two peeled and chopped kiwi fruits with 6 oz. white grape juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake, and then strain into two sugar-rimmed martini glasses. Garnish the drinks with unpeeled kiwifruit slices and serve them with a smile.

couple your sky high heels with happy hour atop a roof overlooking the most gorgeous city in the world, New York City. my favorite newsletter, Social Diva, recently sent out their hot list of the best rooftop bars to hit in Manhattan. all I can picture is short-shorts, martinis-a-plenty, and laughs all around.

Hudson Terrace: Sleek and sexy without tons of attitude, this slightly off-the-grid hotspot has some of the coolest views and hottest parties in Manhattan. Looking for a place for post-work cocktails? This place has a killer happy hour (two-for-one drinks from 5 to 7 pm). It’s a don’t miss, Diva.

230 5th Avenue: Put on your vintage Halston and get your Studio 54 on at this retro, lavish cocktail space. Enjoy unobstructed views of the New York skyline amidst palm trees, old-fashioned cocktails and hot financiers.

Hotel Gansevoort: High above the Meatpacking District, this poolside space is useful for its manhunt-worthy view above the streets. It’s a fantastic pre-game location before a night out in lower Manhattan.

Empire Hotel Rooftop: This sexy sky-high space near Lincoln Center is still a fabulous location with some of the best views of the city. With potent beverages and gorgeous men, this is a stiletto-worthy destination for discerning Divas on a girls’ night out.

THOR Penthouse: This swank new lounge and event space in the converted penthouse atop the Hotel on Rivington is the newest addition to the scene. Complete with hot tub and hotter guys, expect some pretty fabulous things to go down at this hotspot this summer.

A60 and Soho House: If you’re not a member of either of these private patios above Manhattan, take action and find out who is so you can enjoy the views, cocktails and sexy vibe. Diva insider tip: rent a room to gain entry to these ultra swank, members-only hotels. Staycation or VIP room – either way you’ll gain access to all things fabulous.

Social Diva – a website dedicated to young women who thrive off their social calendar by attending the hottest events with some of the coolest people across the country – has sent out a “Sip and Be Seen” list of the newest cocktails to refresh the same ol’ Cosmo you’ve been sippin’ on since 1999. Diva-licious.

A Touch of the Exotic: Switch it up with the entirely Diva-worthy, Asian Pear Lychee Martini: Kai Asian Vodka, pear liqueur, lychee juice and a squeeze of fresh lime. Bat those eyelashes over this glam cocktail and just TRY to keep the men off of you.

Divas Night Out: Invite your fellow Divas over for pre-VIP with a batch of Woo Woos: fill half a cocktail shaker with ice, then squeeze in juice from a lime wedge and add 2 oz. vodka and 1/2 oz. peach schnapps. Shake and then strain into an old-fashioned glass half filled with ice. Add the squeezed lime wedge and top with a splash of cranberry juice. Drink it down and head out on the town – VIP style, of course.

Straight up, and Fabulous: Sometimes we want something strong and neat (just like we like our men), which is when we order Patron Citronge over ice. Southern Divas might like a touch of home with Bourbon neat. This is a perfect drink if you’re on a Steakhouse Stakeout or your own Summer Manhunt.

Wakeup Sans Hangover: If you need to wake up fresh as a daisy (or you just don’t drink, which is fine, too), it doesn’t mean you can’t sip something fabulous. Order our favorite Mocktail, the Grapefruit Lemonade: tell the bartender it’s a shot of Grenadine syrup with a splash of grapefruit juice topped with soda water. Get a straw so you can show off your cute neon manicure. Ah, we love it!

Beach Party Bound? Social Divas who want to watch calories can bring their own “Skinny” cocktail, Bethenny Frankel‘s Skinny Girl Margarita: combine 2 oz. of clear tequila (100 % agave, Patron Silver) with a splash of Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec and a splash of fresh lime juice in a glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and salt or sugar. Don’t forget to bring the bottle of tequila for shots later!
