Summer Soiree: 5 Boozy Summer Coolers

Whether or not you’re on vacation, summer is prime time to kick back with a cocktail. These icy refreshers — with their lively colors and dynamic flavors — look like rays of sunshine.

1. Sex on the Beach: This grown-up fruit punch is brighter than sunflowers and zinnias in bloom. Melon and peach liqueurs and fresh-cut pineapple give this classic a taste of the season, ideal for sipping by the pool all summer long (pictured above).

2. Tequila Lemonade: Tired of margaritas? (Is that possible?) Shake it up with Chuck’s peppermint-meyer-lemon refresher. The optional umbrella garnish is recommended.

 

3. Icebreaker Mojito: Pineapple and watermelon amp up the refreshment factor in Chuck’s vibrant, fruity take on the mojito. Stir in some coconut cream for a second-round pina colada.

 

4. Tequila Sangria: This red sangria shares its berry-spiked spotlight with a splash of tequila and St. Germain liqueur.

 

5. Orange Cream Mimosa: Tyler’s homemade orange sherbet adds an instant chill factor to champagne, making it ideal for a sweet morning swig or a drink-dessert hybrid nightcap.
