Posted on: June 20, 2015
If you’re looking for a recipe for refreshment, you’ll love these summer cocktails for your barbecues and more.
- Summer breeze: Pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, gin, mint leaves and seltzer
The perfect pale pink sipper for a garden party or summertime brunch, the summer breeze is big on tropical flavor with pineapple and grapefruit juices. A splash of bubbly seltzer and fresh mint leaves help cut the gin’s herby flavor. Serve this cocktail over ice.
- Basil julep: Basil leaves, simple syrup and Irish whiskey
Give the classic mint julep a full-flavored twist with this basil variety. The sweet basil leaves will give the julep a round, robust flavor that you won’t get with the standard mint julep. This cocktail is great for making ahead in large batches for parties so the herbal flavor is fully absorbed.
- Moscow mule: Vodka, ginger beer and lime
It’s not summer without vodka, and this simple summertime staple will get you in the spirit with its effervescent and wholly refreshing mix of ginger beer and lime. You can give this classic cocktail the summertime treatment with additives like fresh strawberries and blueberries, if desired.
