Summer Cocktails

Survive the hot summer with a cool drink.

The Pina Colada

  • 2 parts golden rum
  • 1 teaspoon cream of coconut
  • dash of cream
  • 3 parts pineapple juice
  • 1 orange slice

Throw it all into a blender. You can’t possibly go wrong with a drink that’s already pretty wrong to begin with.

The Margarita

  • 1 part tequila
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part lime juice
  • Salt

Frost the rim of your margarita glass with salt or sugar depending on how you like it. Dump all the ingredients in your shaker and shake away. Pour the mixture into the glass all the way to the brim.

The Mojito

  • 2 parts white rum
  • 1 part lime juice
  • top up soda water
  • 10 mint sprigs
  • 1 part ice cubes
  • 1 lime slice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Dig out that mini pestle and mortar and begin by grinding away at the mint and sugar. Once you’re done, add the rum followed by lime juice. Pour the concoction over ice and top it up with a splash of soda water.
