3 Summer-Ready Cocktails to Cool You Off
It’s always five-o’clock somewhere during summertime in Florida. Exuberant tourists and laid-back locals alike love to slow down during humid evenings with a strong drink. Whether you need to take the edge off the workday or are simply in vacation mode, we have a few cocktail recipes sure to satisfy.
The Palm Valley Paloma
This one isn’t technically on our menu, but we’re always ready to whip one up for any cocktail enthusiast. Summer citrus steals the show with our vibrant version of this classic favorite.
2 Oz Blanco tequila
1 Oz agave nectar
2.5 Oz grapefruit juice
1 Oz club soda
Splash of lime juice
A Paloma is pretty simple. Add chilled liquid ingredients to a highball glass then top with ice. Stir. Trust us, you’re in for a treat.
Blood Orange Jacksonville Mule
We love putting a southern twist on this one. Moscow Mules are the perfect cocktail to sip pretty much any time of the year, but a splash of citrus makes this one perfect for summer.
2 Oz Vodka
4 Oz ginger beer
Juice from 1 blood orange
1 oz lime juice
Muddle lime slices, a few mint leaves and lime juice together in a copper mug. Add the vodka and blood orange juice, then stir in the ginger beer last. Fill the rest of the glass with ice and garnish with citrus slices.
Summer Strawberry Prosecco
Sparkling wine will never go out of style. Prosecco is fabulous all on its own, but add strawberry and a splash of limoncello and you’re in business. Enjoy this recipe for a cocktail big enough to serve a party.
2 Cups strawberries, hulled and chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh thyme
1 Cup limoncello
1 750 mL bottle of chilled prosecco (or your favorite sparkling wine)
Blend strawberries, thyme and limoncello together until it reaches a slushy consistency. Fill Champagne flutes ⅓ of the way full with the strawberry mixture. Top with chilled sparkling wine. Salut!
