Summer Cocktail Mix Up

Spencer Special Events - Tuesday, June 23, 2015

With the warm summer months upon us, it's no doubt we all have delicious, refreshing cocktails on the brain. With so many flavors and combo of spirits to choose from it can be very hard to pick your concoction for your big day. So here is a round up of trending summer cocktails and some favorite choices here at SSE. 


It's no shock that mint juleps are a hit down here in the south, but we love this twist on the Southern Classic. 

The Whiskey Smash

2oz Whiskey

1oz Simple syrup

1/2oz Lemon juice

A handful of mint

Moscow Mules are a favorite on the cocktail list these days, but when it comes to Ginger beer we are enjoying it a little more on the tropical side. 

Dark and Stormy

2oz Dark rum

3oz Ginger beer

1/2 oz Lime juice

Ice and a lime slice for garnish

It would not be a cocktail mix up if we didn't include a Champagne cocktail. What better way to mix it up then with Saint Germain and Grapefruit. 

Grapefruit-Elderflower Sparkler

1 1/2 oz Grapefruit juice

1oz St-Germain elderflower liquer

Fill with Champagne or sparkling wine

Garnish with a grapefruit twist

Summer and pineapple juice go hand and hand. Below is a new favorite vodka drink. It doesn't hurt that the pretty blush color almost makes it too pretty to drink. 

Frenchy Cocktail

1 1/2 oz Pear Vodka

3 oz Pineapple Juice

1 oz Cranberry Juice
