Finally, spring break is right around the corner! Whether you’re heading to a beach, throwing a cocktail party, or just kicking your feet up and breaking out the grill, here are some of our go-to cocktails for some springtime relaxation.



Nothing says “it’s finally warm outside again” like a margarita on a patio. This is one of the world’s most popular cocktails, so definitely one to have in your mixology arsenal. Here’s our recipe:


  • Salt or sugar the rim of your glass, and fill it with ice.
  • Mix 1.5 ounces of tequila, an ounce of orange liqueur and some lime juice in a shaker.  
  • Strain into your glass and enjoy!





When we think of a refreshing drink, the mojito is among the first to pop into our minds, and they are actually actually pretty easy to make. Straight from Cuba to your backyard cookout, here’s what to do:


  • In a glass, add mint leaves, a teaspoon of sugar, and two ounces of lime juice. 
  • Mash the mixture using a cocktail muddler. 
  • Add a shot of rum, some crushed ice, and enough club soda to fill the glass. 
  • Add some mint leaves and lime for garnish, and enjoy!



Pina Colada


Another beach trip favorite, the Piña Colada was born in Puerto Rico and became the island’s national drink in the 70s. It’s a bit more complicated as far as ingredients go, but if you’re prepared, it’s sure to be a hit at your next cocktail party. 


  • Add ½ cup coconut cream, ¼ cup pineapple juice, 1 cup of ice, and ¼ cup of white rum to a blender. 
  • Blend until the mixture is smooth
  • Pour, and top with pineapple for a garnish.
  • Sit back and relax with a cold drink in your hand!



Lemon Drop


For all our vodka drinkers out there, don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you. The lemon drop is a fan favorite that’s perfect for a sweet, refreshing spring break treat. Head to your bar cart and get started!


  • Garnish a glass, or if you’re taking a tumbler to the beach, that’s cool too!
  • Fill a shaker halfway with ice.
  • Add 4 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce triple sec, 2 ounces lemon juice and 2 ounces simple syrup.
  • Shake, strain, pour, and enjoy!



Beer with a Lime


No time for mixology? Luckily one of the best summer drinks also happens to be the easiest. Whether it’s a draft at the bar, a bottle in the backyard, or a can at the beach, grab yourself a cerveza and a lime wedge for a refreshing summer sipper. 


  • Get a beer, put a lime wedge in it. Do we need to spell it out more?
