This Indian Summer Cup, packed full of apples and other fruits floating amidst an ambrosial mix of liqueur, gin and tonic water is perfect when the mercury rises and the humidity is high. Enjoy a citrusy Orange Splash and garnish with a juicy slice of a fresh-cut orange. Or, jazz up a traditional rum punch with freshly squeezed orange juice for a tasty infusion of Vitamin C.
How about an invigorating cocktail with a kick? These Mango Jalapeno Margaritas have a tasty tropical flavor with a surprising hint of spiciness for a fabulous zesty treat. We also like the sound of this exotic Mango Colada that is sure to be delicious and smooth.
Stir up some succulent Beachcombers, a light mix of yummy banana liqueur mingled with pear nectar and splashed with lemon over ice. You can’t go wrong with the Lucky Pear, a sweet medley of Bartlett pears, vanilla vodka and other ingredients would also make for a special treat. This particular cocktail was first mixed at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas! Maybe sipping on one of these will bring you some summer luck!
For an especially sophisticated summer cocktail, try these Kiwi Martinis, a modern take on a classic libation. Or, mix up a batch of Brazilian Kiwi Caiprioskas muddled with diced kiwi and mint leaves and garnished with an extra slice of kiwi.
