28 May Cocktails That Put You in the Summer Mood
Summer is one of the best times of the year. Not only is the weather beautiful but pools and beaches are open. Everyone loves a good cocktail while sitting by the beach. Here are some easy and delicious cocktails anyone can make. Anyone of age, that is.
Mojitos are the best ones to make. There are also a ton of flavors you can add to it to make it fit your palette. All you will need is Rum, Mint, Lime, Simple Syrup, and Soda Water. You can start by getting a glass of your choosing and combining 3 limes, some mint and ½ oz simple. You will want to muddle that in the glass. If you do not have a muddler, you can use anything really, you just need to smash it all together and get the juices out. Then you add 1 ½ oz of Rum and top with soda water. To add a flavor, you will add whatever fruit you would like before you muddle. Some favorites are Strawberries, Pineapples, and Blackberries.
For this recipe it works best with a blender. If you do not have a blender, no worries, Ice will due just fine. You will need Coconut (can be milk, or cream), Rum, and Pineapple. You will start by adding 1 ½ oz of rum, 1 ½ oz coconut and 2 oz of pineapple (juice or chunks). You can either add this in a blender with ice or in a shaker with ice. Either way, you want to mix this one good. Poor in a glass and serve.
The ones before were rum but who does not like Tequila? Like the mojito, you can also add flavors to margaritas. For a margarita you will need Tequila, Lime, Simple Syrup, and Triple sec. You will want to shake this one so bring out the shaker. You will first add ice then 1 ½ oz of tequila, 1 oz of triple sec, 1 ½ oz of lime and 1 oz of simple. Shake well and serve over ice. If you like to add a flavor try to muddle that before adding anything. Some favorite flavors are Mango, Watermelon, and Strawberry.
Now this is one of the easiest and favorites. This drink requires Vodka. You will need Vodka, Lime, and Ginger beer. The Ginger beer is usually non-alcoholic. First you will get a glass of your choosing and add 1 ½ oz of Vodka then cut a lime in half and squeeze both halves into your glass. To finish you top with ginger beer and now you have a very refreshing drink.
You don’t need to be drinking alcohol to have a nice cocktail. Any of the above cocktails are just as good with no liquor. You can substitute a little OJ and club soda for the tequila and triple sec in the margarita and It will taste just as delicious.
