Drinks That Will Guarantee
You a Great Mood in Beach Clubs
Summer is knocking on the door and we are increasingly focusing our attention on summer experiences with friends in beach clubs. Sunglasses, floral dresses, and pink fun are standard equipment, but what no one should miss in hand is a good drink. Here are some tips you should definitely try.
The Mint Julep
The Mint Julep is a bourbon cocktail best known for being the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby. But this easy-to-make refresher shouldn’t be reserved for only one day a year. This classic cocktail was created in the southern United States during the 18th century and is still a favorite today. The Mint Julep is traditionally served in a Highball glass or silver Julep cup over crushed ice and garnished with mint. Since bourbon is the only liquid in the drink, you’ll want to use a high-quality bourbon you know you love.
Bourbon and mint go hand in hand - but who knew there were a few bourbons and mints like the Julep Mint? Bourbini is an instant classic mash-up between the Julep and Bellini mints, while the peaches give the bourbon an extra flavor and are spirited. The hot drink dash anchors the drink to balance its fruity, sweet, and bourbon tones, while the fresh mint completes the drink, which must be well paired.
The Spice of Life Recipe
Sometimes a bit of spice in a cocktail is just the right thing to remind you that you're still alive. Here's a simple drink that can be adjusted to suit both those who crave heat, and those who like it a bit more mild. It's dynamite with tequila, but you can also make a smoky version with mezcal, or a more herbal version with gin.
