- Blueberry Mint Cooler – the sweetness of blueberries and syrup offset the tartness of the lemon in this delicious Vodka-based cooler.
- Cosmo Cooler – all the ingredients of a classic Cosmopolitan with the addition of some Grenadine make this cooler an instant hit.
- Dark and Stormy – the spicy tartness of this dark Rum cooler makes it one of my favorites.
- El Diablo – this Tequila-based cocktail that counts Crème de Cassis and Ginger Beer among the ingredients is even spicier than a Dark and Stormy.
- Gin and Tonic – the name is a spot on give-away of what’s in this Gin classic, but don’t forget to serve it with a lime wedge.
- Gin Rickey – it shouldn’t take long to gather the three ingredients for this 100+ year old cocktail, and even less time to mix it.
- Lavender Colada – having Lavender infused Vodka, Cream of Coconut, and pineapple juice as ingredients push this cocktail close to the border of the Tiki category.
- Margarita Cooler – start with the ingredients of your favorite Margarita, but drink this Tequila-based cocktail cooler style.
- Mojito – Rum, lime, sugar and mint: who would have thought that those simple ingredients could taste so good?
- Pomegranate Rum Rickey – a Rickey is a cocktail made from a liquor, some lime juice, a little sweetener, and soda water. The pomegranate juice gives this beauty an extra twist.
- Rum and Coke – this long-time favorite is simplicity itself, but don’t forget the lime.
- Tequila Mojito – a delicious variation on its namesake with one obvious substitution.
- Tom Collins – one taste of this unique recipe should overcome any objections your friends might have to the blue color.
