Summer Drinks

We put together a bunch of drinks to keep your summer going. So have a party and fire up the lawn chairs and BBQ by the pool. These drinks are sure to inspire you to pull out the stops when setting up a poolside bar. Need an excuse to throw a party? A Hawaiian or Island themed party is just the thing to get summer moving in the right direction.  

To start we picked the perfect summer drink, the Blue Hawaiian. Originating in Hawaii in a bar on Waikaki over looking the Pacific Ocean it owes it's blue color to Blue Curacao. Challenged to come up with a drink to use the liquor the bartender pulled off this twist on a tropical drink. Brings to mind long boards, sun, small bikinis and long tan legs!

 

English Summer is a drink that sounds a little strange but is cool crisp and inviting. Give it a try for something that is delightfully different.

 

 

 

Strawberry Thyme Lemonade light an cool with a hint of green. A perfect drink for pairing with food or just enjoying a summer afternoon. Perfect for those vodka lovers that don't like sweet.

 

 

 

Quite A Mango a rum based drink that is as fun to drink as it is to say. Rum and Mango juice go so well together but the basil and the lime keep it smooth and light but not too sweet. Enjoy!

 

 

 

Watermelon Mint Spritzer is sure to be a summer hit. One of our favorites using Gin and fresh watermelon it is light, cool and breezy. Give it a try for something that is a step outside the ordinary.

Island Swizzle is a great drink to impress your friends. Light good and a step above the run of the mill it combines all the things we love in a summer cocktail. Interesting taste with unique flavors make it a summer favorite. 

 

One of the classics Mojito is a rum based drink that is based on a drink from the 1800’s out of Cuba. Classic Mojitos have only Rum, sugar, fresh lime juice and mint. The ultimate summer cooler it is often served with a splash of soda to make it even lighter. White or amber Rums are used for a crisp clean taste. These go down way too easy so keep track of the number while sitting around the pool. 

 

 A clean classy drink that will dress up any summer afternoon activity or party Turn a New Leaf is a great tasting drink that goes well with food and keeps the party going. Nice use of botanticals help to make this a change up to the normal summer cocktail.
