Summer has officially begun! With the weather heating up and the pool parties rockin’, there’s never been a better time to shake up your summer cocktail game.
If you’ve always wanted to be where the people are and love wiggling your toes in the sand, this drink is for you.
Here’s a grown up take on summer’s favorite seasonal fruit.
What do you get when you combine a brunch classic with a summer favorite? A mimosa margarita. Day or night, these drinks are ready for sippin’.
You might look at the recipe for this one and think “It can’t be that easy, can it?” Oh yes, it can. A rum and coke with lime. That’s it. That’s the drink.
A fresh take on the classic mojito, pear adds a little zing to this one.
When life gives you lemons, mix them with bourbon.
Place strawberries into blender and add 2 tbsp of sugar. Add about 1/4 of a cup of water and pulse until pureed.
In a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat, add the puree and 1 3/4 cup of water. Heat until mixture begins to boil. Allow to cool and then strain through a sieve.
In a large pitcher, combine the strawberry syrup, bourbon, 1 cup of water, lemon juice, basil leaves, and a splash of bitters. Stir and then pour into eight glasses with ice.
Garnish each with a basil sprig.
Tom’s Italian cousin, Limoncello, is here to freshen up your gin game.
In a pitcher, combine the limoncello, gin and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
Press 3 thin lemon slices against the inside of each of 8 collins glasses.
Add ice to the glasses. Stir the limoncello mixture and pour it into the glasses.
Stir 2 ounces of club soda into each drink and garnish with a mint sprig.
How does one make a daiquiri both more summery and fancier? Add rhubarb.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the lime wedge and shake well.
Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the lime wedge.
A tart take on a long-time classic.
Summer is here and it waits for no one! So get your cocktail shakers out and get ready to stay cool for the summer.
