4 Amazing summer cocktails for the sunny weather
In the hot heat of summer, it is tough to resist the temptation of sipping on a cool, refreshing drink. Whether you're hosting a party on a hot day, spending a weekend by the pool or soaking up the rays on vacation, here's a list of some amazing summer cocktails for the sunny weather e perfect cocktail to celebrate summer.
Summer cocktails with Vodka
Vodka has been around since at least the 17th century when it was produced by distilling fermented potatoes. The word "vodka" comes from the Russian word "voda," which means water. This refers to the fact that water was used to distill vodka rather than grain or fruit-based alcohols like beer or wine.
Vodka is a great spirit for making cocktails because it has a clean flavour, meaning that it won’t overpower your drink like other spirits might. It also has a relatively neutral colour which means you can use it in almost any recipe without changing the colour of your drink too much.
To make this cocktail, we mixed Vodka, coffee liqueur, cold-brew coffee and simple syrup in a proprietary blend. The result was an elegant and sophisticated post-dinner pick-me-up!
Summer cocktails with Gin
Gin has been a popular spirit for centuries. It’s a versatile spirit that can be used in a variety of cocktails, but it’s particularly popular in the summer months. Gin has an incredibly light and crisp taste, which makes it perfect to mix with other ingredients that would normally overpower it.
Gin is made from grain alcohol, juniper berries and a variety of other botanicals. The botanicals give gin its distinct flavor profile, which varies from brand to brand.
We like to think of ourselves as having a little bit of the old school and a little bit of the new school. If you’re looking for an Italian Aperitivo that really has it all, we invite you to try our blend of the classic Negroni - a bittersweet balance with dry citrus notes and a delicate, spicy finish.
Summer cocktails with Rum
Nothing says classic summer cocktail than rum based cocktails. Rum is one of the most versatile spirits out there, so it's no surprise that it makes an appearance in many summer cocktails. It works well with tropical fruits like pineapple and coconut (as well as other ingredients), making it perfect for any summer occasion. From breezy punches to rum mixed with citrus or herbal liqueurs, here are some of our favorite rum-based cocktails:
Summer Cocktails with Tequila
Tequila is a spirit traditionally made from the blue agave plant. It's distilled to 80 or 100 proof, and then rested in oak barrels for up to one year. The result is a clean, crisp, and smooth spirit that's perfect in cocktails.
Because it's so versatile, tequila also works well when mixed with other ingredients. Here are some of our favorite summer cocktail recipes.
