Refreshing sips for a warm day.

  • Benedictine, Lemon juice, Cucumber, Champagne, Ice
  • Peach schnapps, Iced tea, Ice
  • Rum, Orgeat syrup, Orange Curaçao, Rock candy syrup, Lime juice, Mint
    Whether you believe Trader Vic's or Don the Beachcomber's claims about inventing it, the Mai Tai is an absolutely essential tiki cocktail that any beach bum worth their salt needs to know. Don't be fooled by any neon-colored pretenders—this is a classic drink that doesn't need to show off. It's simply delicious.
  • Light rum, Lime, Sugar, Mint, Soda water
    The Mojito cocktail is an old Cuban original made from white rum, mint, lime, sugar or simple syrup, and soda water. It's minty, citrusy, and refreshing, and while the Mojito cocktail can be a bit of a pain to make thanks to the muddling involved, it's a classic drink for a reason. The origins of the name Mojito are somewhat murky, but it likely comes f…
  • Pimm's No. 1, 7-Up, Cucumber, Lemon peel
    The Pimm's Cup is a British classic that's great for summer afternoons and brunches with friends. It's light on alcohol (using only Pimm's No. 1 as a base spirit, coming in at 50 proof) but fresh and delicious, and like a Bloody Mary you can add nearly any fresh fruits and vegetables you want to make it your own.
  • Rum, lime juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup, mint
    Rum Punch can refer to pretty much any recipe that includes rum, citrus, sugar, occasionally bitters and tropical fruits, and is served in a punch bowl. As such, there's no "true" Rum Punch recipe, but this one is simple to make and will be a fan-favorite at your next party. This recipe makes about 12-15 drinks, depending on the size of cups you use (we reco…
  • Strawberries, Mint, Lime, Creme de Fraise des Bois, Rum, Soda water
    The Strawberry Mojito is a slight variation on the classic Mojito, but with a little more fruit-forward sweetness to balance out the citrus. The addition of Crème de Fraise des Bois (or any other strawberry liqueur, really) gives an extra boost to the muddled fresh strawberries, which are delicious in combination with the mint and lime. This is a great cockt…

  • Vodka, Bitters, Rhubarb Syrup, Squeezed Lemon Juice
    For this first drink I took homemade rhubarb syrup, vodka, lemon, basil and bitters and created the most delicious summertime drink. It’s slightly sweet and has a light basil flavor. Who knew basil and rhubarb were such good friends? This drink would also be perfect with gin if you are a fan. Credit: Nutmeg Nanny
  • gin, elderflower, mint, geranium
