Summer Cocktails

Summer Cocktails - OH Fashion

We are heading into the hottest of the four temperate seasons. I don't know about you, but I'd like summer. A little hint about me is that I live in New York, so let's say I want some heat!

The summer brings long days, wild nights, bikinis and flip-flops, tan lines, and wavy hair. There is nothing as refreshing as a fresh, tasty, beachy cold drink during the summer.

Want to order something cold and refreshing, but don't know what to order? Perhaps you'd like to take the minibar home and make a cocktail?

You're in good hands. Here are the ingredients and directions for making a rainbow in a glass! 

 

Piña Colada

The famous Piña Colada, there is even a song about this tasty drink. Did you know Puerto Rican pirate Robert Cofresí is said to have served his crew the mix of coconut, pineapple, and white rum in the early 1800s to boost morale.

Thank God for this pirate because you can never go wrong with a Piña Colada.

  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple, frozen

  • Pineapple slices

Directions:

 If you like Piña Colada... Remember that song?

Another classic drink, a cocktail consisting of tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass - is known as a Margarita.

Tequila Sunrise

Sunrise in a drink!  In a Tequila Sunrise, you use tequila, orange juice, grenadine, and sugar to mimic the colors of a sunset. The modern drink originates from Sausalito, California, in the early 1970s after an earlier one created in the 1930s in Phoenix, Arizona.

Ingredients:

 Directions:

  • Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.

"It's another tequila sunrise! Take a shot of courage"
