After a hard winter, it’s quite understandable when people choose to hold their summer events outdoors. After being forcibly kept indoors by unfriendly winter weather, it’s hard to resist the lure of a warm sun, blue skies and a refreshing breeze. When the temperature climbs into the triple digits, however, people head back indoors to savor the comforts of air-conditioning.
Savoring a summer cocktail is another delicious and refreshing way to fight off the summer heat. Below are four revitalizing summer drinks that are guaranteed to keep you cool while standing up to the heat of summer.
A Splash of the Unexpected
For an unusual yet totaling beguiling flavor, add guava puree to your favorite sparkling wine. Serve Guava Mimosas with a stick of rock candy for a touch of sweetness and a dash of whimsy. When you dip the rock candy into the drink, a burst of bubbles tickles your palate as an added treat.
Asian Summer Delight
Stir in dry sake and a dash of elderflower liqueur to plum wine for a drink that’s sweet and light. A Plum Blossom is the perfect cocktail to savor on a hot summer day. Pop in a small pickled plum (also known as umeboshi in Japan) to add a bit of tart flavor — the perfect counterpoint to the plum wine’s characteristically sweet taste.
Blazing Orange Sun Cocktail
For a drink that not only refreshes but also mimics the color of the sun on a late summer day, nothing beats the Negroni Sizzle. Campari, gin and sweet vermouth combined with seltzer gives you an intensely orange cocktail that’s sure to please your taste buds and keep you coming back for more.
Tangy Southern Concoction
Named after the brand of Cognac brandy that serves as its main ingredient, Sazarac is a New Orleans version of a whiskey cocktail. It is concocted with a dash of Pernod and Peychaud’s Bitters for a distinct flavor that is sweet and tart.
