Gin and Tonic - the classic summer cocktail, the gin and tonic has many variations depending on your taste preference. Typically, it is made by pour one measured shot (roughly 1.5 ounces) of gin over a glass of ice, then top off with tonic water. Squeeze a lime wedge on top and enjoy!
Margarita - yet another classic that is a favourite at summertime BBQ’s. Margarita’s can be made in a variety of fruit flavours and are one of the easiest cocktails to make. You can make it simple with a pre-made margarita mix and tequila over ice, or you can make it from scratch using lime juice, Cointreau, triple sec and tequila.
Mojito - this rum drink is popular in the tropical climates for very good reason. It is a cooling, refreshing blend of rum, mint leaves, simple syrup and lime juice over ice and topped off with club soda.
Tequila Sunrise - start your day with a Tequila Sunrise and begin your BBQ right! Simply pour 3 ounces of orange juice, 1.5 ounces of tequila and a half ounce of grenadine in a tall glass over ice without stirring. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and an orange slice.
