As we dive deeper into the depths of the summer season, we know we’re not the only ones loving those long beach days, the warm breezes, and the never-ending sunlight. But with the heat comes a need to quench your thirst, and what better way to do so than with a cocktail that both compliments and cools. Experiment with this summer’s newest alcohol releases, complete with every fruity flavor from coconut to apple.
It’s not called sweet summertime for nothing, and UV vodka encapsulates that exact mood with their new flavor, UV Sugar Crush. With a tropical and candy-like taste, UV Sugar Crush was inspired by retro candies to appeal to an every day sweet tooth. Having an aroma of bubblegum mixed with an array of fruit, this launch is one you definitely don’t want to miss.

Lemongrass, Lychee, Ginger, Coconut—these flavors will enhance any if not all of your summer cocktails. Don’t fill like being a bartender?

We all know that margaritas are a summer staple, especially if made with premium tequila like Patrón. This season, the world’s best-selling tequila has finally crafted a triple sec to help you master your marg making skills. At 80 proof, Patrón Citronge has the subtle aroma of orange with a slightly sweet aftertaste, and at $20 a bottle, we think this new addition added to Patrón’s traditional tequila will make for an epic combination.
