A cold cocktail on a hot day: is there anything better? In honour of patio season and summer lounging, here are six cocktail recipes perfect for your next outdoor gathering.
This cocktail by Proof YYC‘s Ian Storcer is a summer-y mix of gin, Grand Marnier, Aperol and plum bitters. Don’t forget to add a hint of lemon juice and a garnish of grated cinnamon to take this to the next level. Image Author: Jager and Kokemor
Summer is blueberry season, and this recipe packs in a ton. Mix with lemon, cranberry, pineapple and fresh raspberries, then serve on ice and top with either sparkling wine or club soda.
This stylish cocktail—made with pisco and creme de cassis—is as refreshing as it is beautiful. Courtesy of The Acorn‘s Liam Bryant, this special cocktail is also made of Sea Buckthorn syrup, giving it a unique, sweet taste. Image Author: Liam Bryant
No summer cocktail list would be complete without mentioning a margarita, and this recipe by the team at La Taqueria hits the spot. For a smokier flavour, Chef Madrigal suggests swapping the tequila for mezcal. Image Author: La Taqueria
Perfect for a crowd, this colourful cocktail combines Tanqueray gin, fresh watermelon and lemon juice, vanilla bean and ginger syrup, Bittered Sling Zingiber crabapple bitters and sparkling water. Garnish with cucumber slices and serve chilled. Image Author: Clinton Hussey
