The Estate is the ideal private event space in Atlanta to say goodbye to summer with your favorite cocktail in hand. The tall majestic trees on our well-kept grounds frame the horizon perfectly as you contemplate the last few remaining days of summer. Grab a glass of these summer cocktails below and bid the season farewell, one sultry sip at a time.

A Cocktail with a Kick

Does a cocktail with some spice sound great to you? Then you’ll love this end-of-summer sriracha concoction. It comes with grilled peaches, smoked sage, vodka, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup. It has a bright orange hue and a palatable bittersweet aftertaste thanks to the Aperol. Savor it as you watch the summer sun disappear into autumn.

A Mad, Mad Margarita Drink

This margarita gets its kick from a few drops of El Yucateca, which is liquefied habanero peppers. It also has mashed orange chunks, lime juice, tequila blanco and Grand Marnier. It is served with a garnish of hibiscus salt for an added dash of summer color. Be aware that it is a spicy drink, but it is also surprisingly light and refreshing.

Mojito Twist

For a different twist on a classic drink, add St. Germaine liqueur to the rum and lime juice in a regular mojito. This French artisanal liqueur adds hints of pear and lychee to the mojito, giving it a nice summery taste. Brown sugar instead of the usual sugar cane juice adds another dimension of richness to this mojito take-off.

Spiked Summer Juice

For a summer fruit drink taken up several notches, shake watermelon shrub with bourbon, mint leaves and simple syrup, strain over ice and sip very slowly. In mixology parlance, a shrub is a concoction made from vinegar, sugar and a fruit, herb or some other type of plant. It is allowed to ferment for a few days to allow the flavors to blend and intensify. It gives any cocktail a punch you will long remember after summer is gone.

Apple-laced Cocktail

As you bid summer farewell, usher autumn in with this drink that is flavored with the quintessential fall harvest flavor – apples. A spiced apple cocktail has vodka, apple cider, ginger liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup. Whole cloves, allspice and cinnamon are added for an irresistible whiff of freshly baked apple pie with every sip. It’s the perfect drink to nurse as summer ends and a new season begins.
