Cottage season is time for relaxing and what better way to relax than by enjoying a few summer docktails. If you’re a cocktail fan looking for some new, fresh summer recipes to try, LOOK NO FURTHER. Here are some of our favourite summer drink finds.
This summer drink combines ½ a cup ginger-beer, 1 ounce peach schnapps and soda water. Whether you make a glass for one or a pitcher for many, this drink sure is a hit. Garnish your glass with a fresh peach slice and there you have it, a light and fruity beverage.
For this drink all you will need is a bottle of rosé, your choice. A ½ cup of lemon juice and 2 cups of frozen berries. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are most popular for this recipe. Pop all of that into a blender with a couple ice-cubes and BAM you have a yummy frozen-rosé.
The Pink Bikini:
This drink is a super-easy cocktail with an incredible tropical taste. All you need is pink lemonade, coconut rum, banana liqueur and amaretto. Shake this drink on some ice and serve in a hollowed out coconut for authentic beach-vibes.
The Watermelon Chill:
This watermelon docktail the perfect refreshing drink to sip on this summer! Easy, light and made with 4 simple ingredients. This refreshing drink is a crowd pleaser. Have one large watermelon diced and chilled before adding to the blender. Then add 2 cups coconut water, 4 table spoons fresh lime juice, 1 cup citrus vodka and sliced limes for garnish.
The Blue Hawaiian:
This Blue Hawaiian recipe will transport you straight to a place of pale white sand and softly crashing waves. A place where you have nothing to do and all day to do it. Not to mention it’s fun colour and tropical taste. For this drink you will need 1 ounce coconut rum, 1 ounce blue curacao, 2 cups pineapple juice, ice cubes and a slice of pineapple for garnish. Shake on ice and serve in a chilled glass.
The Beach House Cosmo:
For this drink we recommend that you serve it in a pitcher as its too good to only have one glass. You will need 4 cups lemonade, 2 cups vodka, 1 cup cranberry juice, ½ a cup triple sec and 10-15 fresh lime slices. Throw it all in a pitcher with some ice and you are ready to go.
