Cocktails to Enjoy in Summer over Beaches




With the advent of the summer season, the land is getting hotter and the beaches are starting to see more people.

And why not? There’s absolutely nothing like sipping on a cool summer cocktail, while you sunbathe by the blue ocean. But after some unforeseen accidents, the beach authorities have banned alcohol on the shore.

So, make sure the beach you have chosen has no such restrictions and rules so that you can enjoy your summer life to the fullest.

And, if you’re finding it hard to choose from the wide variety of cocktails available, here are a few that are a must-try.

1. Sangria

Sangrias will always top my list, as long as the greatest summer cocktails of all times are concerned. It is a traditional cocktail of Spanish origin made with brandy, vanilla extract, dried Spanish red wine along with your favourite choice of fruits. It is refreshing and also, is the best to sip on under the burning sun.

2. Piña Colada

Like sangrias, Pina Coladas are also a classic cocktail meant for summer. It was brought into being in the early 1950s and it has been a favourite since then. The main component of a piña colada is white rum, mixed with a dash of coconut cream and chopped watermelon. It is then served with some crushed ice to add the crunchy element. 

3. Watermelon-Vodka Spritzer

While some people might be hesitant to try out vodka, this summer cocktail is something you cannot mix. Both vodka and watermelon make an awesome component of a summer cocktail, and when they both are mixed together, the combination is just phenomenal. In this, the whole watermelon is blended into a puree and then mixed with vodka and lime juice. Adding crushed ice makes the drink even better.

4. Strawberry Daiquiri

To beat the heat, a strawberry daiquiri is another refreshing cocktail that originated in the early 1800s in Cuba. It is basically a blend of white rum, crushed strawberries, ice and a dash of lime juice. These are very easy to make and they taste even better when you’re sitting under the hot sun.

5. Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz is the signature cocktail, right from Italy. The main ingredient in this drink is Aperol, which gives the drink a bright orange colour and a stark fruity flavour. The other main ingredient of this cocktail is Italian white rum, mixed with an ounce of regular club soda and garnished with a slice of orange. Aperol is generally a spirit that helps to stimulate and build up your appetite, so it is generally recommended to have before a meal, even though it can easily pass as a summer cocktail.

6. Red Rum Punch

When we’re talking about cocktails, the red Rum punch is one of the best of all summer cocktails. This drink is basically a blend of three different types of rum, with exciting summer flavours including raspberries and lemon with a hint of mint. This is actually so refreshing that once you start having these you will never feel like stopping. Add crushed ice for a better rum experience.

7. Blackberry Cilantro Margarita

Margarita is the most typical example of a summer cocktail. It’s refreshing and makes it best for shipping under the bright sun. But, what if the classic margarita was mixed with some blackberry puree with a dash of cilantro? Trust me, it just gets better and better. Also, adding the orange flavoured liqueur triple sec, and tequila enhances the whole margarita experience.

8. E&J Brandy Peach Palmer

If you are a fan of brandy, then you definitely cannot miss out on this cocktail. If you’re looking for some new flavour to try out, this is the best of the lot that will give you the feel of lemonade and an iced tea hybrid.

The main component is the peach brandy, which changes the whole dynamic of the classic Palmer and gives this drink a refreshing twist. This is actually very simple to make, the ingredients only being peach brandy, iced tea and lemonade. You can add a slice of slime to it as a garnish.

However, if you’re not an alcohol drinker, you can also check out some non-alcoholic spirits from They not only taste amazing but are also good for your health.

Over to you…

There’s nothing better than lying lazily on the beach and sipping on refreshing cocktails. But if you’re confused as to what to choose from such a wide array of cocktails, you can start with the ones mentioned above and you’ll not be disappointed.
