Summer Drinks To Sip By The Pool

After spending about six months in London one thing was clear, the go to summer drink was Pimm’s and Lemonade whether you were at the boat races or the beach. Here are just a few of my favorite summer cocktail concoctions for the perfect lazy summer afternoon.

Pimm’s & Lemonade

Best for: Watching the Oxford-Cambridge boat race or sailing in the hamptons
How to make it: 1/4 Pimm’s No. 1
3/4 Lemonade
Some mint leaves, lots of ice and some fruit for fun

Sangria

Best for: late night christmas light laden backyard bbqs (we’re giving you a fun white wine alternative)
How to make it: 1 bottle of white wine (riesling, or some equally delicious sweet white wine)
1/2 cup peach schnapps
1/2 cup soda (anything citrus based like sprite)
fruit (mangoes, peaches, pineapple)

Planter’s Punch

Best for: kicking back in a rocking chair or swaying in a hammock
How to make it: 1/3 Dark Rum
1/3 Orange Juice
1/3 Pineapple Juice
some Lime Juice and Grenadine

Mojito

Best for: anywhere and everywhere
How to make it: 1/2 cup rum
two tbsp. sugar
three tbsp. limejuice
club soda
crushed ice and mint leaves

We left out some classic favorites like Margaritas, Pina Coladas and Long Island Iced Teas but we’re hoping these for will help kick you off.
