As summer rages on, the temperatures keep rising. Sure, you can retreat to the pool or the beach to beat the heat, but how about keeping cool with a refreshing cocktail in hand? Consider recreating these refreshing cocktail roundups from The StillSalute, and Bottiglia – perfect for indulging in on those hot summer days and summer nights.

 

Since summer’s all about tropical vacations and flavors, why not add the perfect tropical touch to your pool party or beachside bash? Try Bottiglia’s “Fresca Fizz,” a delicious concoction made with raspberries, mint leaves, Grey Goose Vodka, fresh lime juice, Wilks & Wilson Raspberry Gomme Syrup and Prosecco. Add raspberries, mint leaves and raspberry syrup into a mixing tin, mix, add in the rest of the ingredients along with ice, and shake. Complete the cocktail by adding Prosecco into the mixing tin, straining over crushed ice, and garnishing with fresh raspberries and mint leaves!
