Memorial Day weekend officially kicks off summer for our American readers. It’s a time to bond with friends, enjoy the sun, relax and partake in some adult beverages. There’s nothing more refreshing than sipping an ice cold cocktail on a hot day at the beach. Don’t you agree? I’m sure you do.
With that in mind, I reached out to a few of our friends to whip up a few tasty concoctions to share. Check out the drink recipes below featuring Sauza Tequila, EFFEN Vodka and Crave Chocolate Liqueurs. Speaking of Sauza, if you haven’t checked out their hot lifeguard, I’ve included him below as well. Enjoy and drink responsibly.
How To Make
In a small pitcher, muddle together the mint leaves, sugar and lime juice until they start to melt together. Add your Sauza® Blue Silver. Fill 4 glasses with ice and pour cocktail mixture 3/4 of the way to the top of each glass. Fill each glass with club soda and garnish with a lime and an extra sprig of mint. (Serves 4)
Pour limeade, beer and cherry soda into blender filled with ice. Fill limeade can with Sauza® Blue Silver Tequila and add to blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy.
Build ingredients in order with ice in a highball glass.
Garnish with a slice of fresh pink grapefruit.
Mound fine crushed ice in a cocktail glass using a large ice cream scoop. Pour each ingredient, one by one, in stripes to create a horizontal layering of the ingredients over the crushed ice. Serve with a demitasse spoon.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel folded in half with a red cherry, held together by an American flag toothpick.
Combine ingredients, except for seltzer, in a tall glass and stir very well. Pour over ice and top with seltzer- then stir again.
In a pint glass, muddle together sliced cucumber and Sauza® Blue Tequila. Let sit in the refrigerator for one hour. Strain the cucumber Tequila and combine with all ingredients in a pitcher. Stir and serve over ice. Garnish with reserved cucumber slices and a wedge of lime. (serves 4)
Wash your blueberries, reserving a few for garnish. In a shaker, muddle together blueberries and agave or sugar. Strain through a sieve into a pitcher and add the remaining ingredients. Stir and taste to adjust sweet/tart balance. Serve over ice with either sugar or salt on the rims in Mason Jars. (serves 4)
