I must apologize for the abrupt drop-off in posting this past week. I was on vacation in Maine and had some catching-up to do when I returned. There’s nothing like a beach vacation to get you thinking about summer cocktails. We’ve still got one good month left so why not give these a try at your final summer bash:
Blueberry Passion Mojito:
2 parts White Rum
2 parts Hiram Walker Blueberry Passion Schnapps
Juice of 1 large Lime
4-6 large mint leaves
Splash of Soda
Muddle the mint leaves in a Collins glass until the essence is released. Add ice to fill the glass. Add lime juice, Rum, and Schnapps. Pour into shaker and pour back into glass. Add two thin straws and garnish with a mint leaf.
Blushing White Peach Sangria:
1 part White Zinfandel
1 part Hiram Walker White Peach Schnapps
1 part Pineapple Juice (not from concentrate)
2 parts Lemon Lime Soda
2 Fresh Peach slices
4 Pineapple chunks
Fill a hurricane glass with ice. Pour ingredients as listed. Pour back and forth in shaker two times to mix and top with Lemon Lime Soda.
Mango Green Tea Frappe:
1 part Light Rum
2 parts Hiram Walker Mango Schnapps
¾ part Monin Green Tea Syrup
1 ¼ parts fresh Sweet & Sour mix
2 lemon squeezes
1 cup ice
Combine ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a hurricane glass, garnish with a lemon corkscrew and mint sprig and serve.
What’s your favorite summer drink? Share it here & don’t be ashamed if it seems silly or simple. Who doesn’t love a nice, sickly-sweet frozen Pina Colada every now and then?
