Here’s the thing about cocktails: they are so darn good. Sure, beer is easier, and yes, wine goes with everything, but there is something magical about a perfectly prepared mixed drink. Especially when it’s a blend of sweet, fruity and strong! This summer is unlike any other, so if a sugary cocktail is the highlight of your day, there is nothing wrong with that! Here are a few absolutely delightful drinks to try in the Corridor this week.
This drink is as pretty as it is delicious! The Brugal Mojito Royale from Texas de Brazil is made with Brugal Anejo Rum, fresh limes, mint, strawberry puree muddled and a splash of prosecco. This pink, bubbly drink is simply irresistible!
Sweet, juicy pineapples are my favorite summertime fruit! That’s why I love the Pineapple Crush Bowl from RA Sushi. This drink is so big, it’s actually meant to be shared with a date. It’s made with Haku Japanese Vodka, Mugi Shochu, elderflower liqueur, fresh pineapple and lemon, and topped with MIO Sparkling Sake. It’s like sunshine in a glass!
Calling all Southern Belle’s – you will want to try the Peachy Keane cocktail from Ida Claire this week! This refreshing summer drink is made with bourbon, honey, peach and ginger Tisane, lemon, egg white and angostura bitters, all mixed together for a delightfully sweet taste.
You may not be able to travel to an exotic island this summer, but you can still enjoy a refreshing tropical cocktail at Lazy Dog! Order the Rum Barrel Punch, made with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Malibu Coconut Rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, pomegranate juice, sweet and sour, sugarcane and dark rum float. Cheers!
