Let the summer drinks begin!

Classic Daiquiri

The classic daiquiri is one of the easiest drinks there is! The 1920’s style daiquiri is actually not frozen but served in a coupe glass. Rum cocktails are perfect for summer, and this one is simple to make and ultra refreshing!

A daiquiri is a family of rum cocktails made with white rum, citrus juice (usually lime), and a sweetener. A classic daiquiri is shaken, strained, and served in a cocktail glass.

Mango Margarita

Fruity spins on the margarita are fitting for summer cocktails: as is this mango margarita! This sunny spin on the classic is icy and creamy, with an underlying mango essence. It’s sweet, it’s zingy, and against the bite of the salt: it goes down pretty easy.

Berry Vodka Smash

Here’s a perfect summer vodka cocktail: the vodka smash! Tangy and refreshing, it features muddled blackberries, mint, and lime. It’s sweet tart with a bit of back-end booziness from the vodka, though it’s not too strong. Basically: these go down easy — so beware!

A smash is a fruity, icy cocktail that often highlights seasonal fruit. It’s a drink for hot summer days, and can be made with your spirit of choice. Mint is a classic choice used in a smash, but other herbs can work.

Classic Moscow Mule

Something about a mule screams summer cocktail, doesn’t it? It’s fizzy, it’s tangy, it looks festive, and it goes down easy. What could be better than a classic Moscow mule? With only 3 ingredients and 3 minutes required, it’s perfect to serve for entertaining: or a lazy evening on the patio.

A Moscow mule is a classic cocktail born in the 1940’s, made with vodka and ginger beer.
