Gin and Tonic
One of the best drinks for hot weather. This is also a simple recipe that you may alter according to your preferences and the amount of gin you wish to consume. Pour one measured shot (about 1.5 ounces) over ice in a glass, then top with your favorite tonic water. Some tonic waters are flavored with lime or sweetened with a sweetener rather than sugar. On top, squeeze a lime wedge.
The rim of the glass is dipped in lime or lemon juice before being rolled in salt. Simply combine ice, two shots of tequila, and your favorite margarita mix to make a simple margarita. Add an ounce of lime juice and a shot of Cointreau, triple sec, or any other orange liqueur to build your own cocktail. This drink comes in a variety of flavors, all of which are delicious.
They are commercially available in bottles under a variety of brand names. To make them at home, fill a glass halfway with fresh mint leaves, two tablespoons of sugar, and an ounce of lime juice. Use a muddler or a spoon to combine the ingredients. Finish with a shot of rum and a splash of club soda. Serve with a mint leaf as a garnish.
This delicious drink derives its name from its color, and it’s a great way to start or end a day in the sun. Add ice, 3 ounces orange juice, 1.5 ounces tequila, and a half ounce of grenadine to a tall glass. Allow it to combine in without stirring. Serve with a maraschino cherry or an orange slice as a garnish.
Make your lemonade with some Italian spice! This is another non-alcoholic beverage that can be made alcoholic if desired. 2 cups sugar, a bouquet of fresh basil, and 1 cup water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low heat and continue to cook until the sugar has dissolved. Vodka, tequila, and even whisky go nicely together.
