The summer sun is shining down upon us and we all want to stay indoors to avoid the scorching heat. However, this is not always possible and sooner or later, you have to venture out into the world. When you return tired and exhausted, the only thing on your mind is a cool and refreshing drink to help you relax and unwind.
For ages, bartenders have been passing down recipes of amazing cocktails, which are designed to beat the heat. As generations have passed, some of the original recipes have been altered all-together into lip-smacking concoctions. Some of these concoctions are fruity while some boast cool chilled spirits.
Here are the three simple, delicious and soothing cocktails, which will surely help you to relax this summer:
For all those who like it simple and straight, a Margarita is always a great way to delight your tastebuds.This Tequila based drink will cool you down almost instantly and make you feel like you are in paradise! It will make you feel alive with its sweet and sour flavours and leave you craving for more. You can experiment with the quantities of lime juice and Cointreau while making this sour drink, but don’t forget to rim the glass with salt to get the signature salty after-taste of a Margarita.
Whisky and Scotch lovers can now have the cocktail of their dreams with a Mint Julep. This century-old drink is still popular among Whisky lovers and is one of the simplest drinks to make. Mint, Soda and Sugar; just three ingredients are enough to turn a shot of Whisky into a tongue-rolling cocktail. Mint and sugar make this drink delectable and refreshing, top it up with club soda or ginger ale, and let the Black Dog Scotchwork its magic.
Looking out to try something citrusy and tangy this Saturday afternoon? Go ahead and take a sip of a refreshing Daiquiri. Rum, Lime Juice and Sugar; that’s all it takes to make this straight-up drink. This drink is somewhat lemony and sour, and is the perfect way to beat the summer heat.
So if the summer heat is getting you down, throw some ingredients together and make a cocktail that will instantly life up your spirits!
