Mix Up These Summer Cocktails

What better way to embrace the laid-back vibe of the season than by sipping on a delicious, hand-crafted cocktail? As the warm summer days roll in, it's time to savor those long weekends spent lounging by the water, enjoying leisurely boat outings, and basking in the golden glow of sunset on the patio. A well-made drink is the perfect companion to unwinding and soaking up the essence of summer. The idyllic summer cocktail is an ideal accessory for an elevated and sophisticated look, creating the perfect vibe that embraces a balanced lifestyle of work and play. To kickstart the summer season, we gathered our thoughts on the most refreshing cocktails.

The Lone Ranger

Spritzes emulate the perfect summer vibe. One sip, and you feel as if you are sitting on a beach of the coast of Italy. Take a break from the standard spritz and try 2024’s drink of the summer: The Lone Ranger. A twist on the classic French 75 cocktail, it dates back to World War I. The drink has an interesting blend of flavors and consists of four simple ingredients: tequila, sparkling wine, lemon juice, and simple syrup. These ingredients give a balance of sweet and sour, where the citrus balances out the agave flavor of the tequila. The name gives a nod to the fictionalized masked Texas ranger as the Lone Ranger cocktail is set to embody the classic American West spirit.

Amaretto Sour

The Italian twist on the Whiskey Sour is the Amaratto Sour. The addition of amaretto perfectly compliments the bourbon, releasing sophisticated hints of almond and fruit pits. The key ingredient to balance the sweetness is cask-strength bourbon because of its deep and unique flavor profile. Follow the amaretto and bourbon with freshly squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup, and an egg white. If you choose, shake the egg white first to create a dramatic froth. Summer 2024 is the time to upgrade your Whiskey Sour.

Summer Beer

Next time you are hosting a cookout, excite your guests with this summer beer cocktail. The best thing about this recipe is that you can personalize it based on your favorite light beer and liquor. Grab your best pitcher and start with Sprite Zero and lime slices. Next, pick an eight-pack of your favorite light beer and cater to your audience by choosing either tequila or vodka. Beer in a cocktail may sound foreign to some, but this recipe has quickly become a summer go-to for many. We would include storing instructions, but that won’t be necessary after your party has a taste. This easy-to-prepare cocktail will refresh your guests and give the perfect summer vibe while saving you from playing bartender at your in polo leaning while sipping on a cocktail

Mint Julep

The thought of this last recipe is honestly enough to drool over. Who knew that the simple combination of bourbon and mint syrup would create the most refreshing drink? You can choose to muddle the mint leaves like a mojito, but we have found an elevated alternative to better your cocktail experience. Add mint leaves to your simple syrup mixture to truly bring out the sweet mint flavor of this drink. Finish off your cocktail experience by serving this mint julep in a silver goblet or highball glass. No matter the occasion, this cocktail is the perfect addition to a warm summer night.
