Predicting the “summer jams” is a seasonal rite of passage, but equally important is determining what drinks will be your jam.
Song: All in the Invasion of Privacy album by Cardi B
Cocktail: The Zing Ting
Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, the No. 1 album on the charts, pairs perfect with The Zing Ting, which would easily top #1 the Cocktail Chart – if there ever was one. The drinks combination of Gran Añejo Barceló, muddled ginger, lemon juice, apple cider and honey syrup creates a taste as fierce and spicy as the female rapper.
- 1.75 ounces Gran Añejo Barceló
- 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1 ounce apple juice (cider)
- 1 ounce honey syrup (25% water to 75%honey)
- .25 ounces fresh ginger juice (or muddled ginger)
- Shake and strain over ice into rocks glass
- Garnish with lemon zest wrapped around luxardo cherry
Cocktail: Norman’s Revenge
Hold your head high and your glass of Norman’s Revenge higher, as you belt out IDGAF by Dua Lipa – aka, your new breakup anthem. Created by Miami’s No.3 Social, the drink mixes tequila, agave nectar, lime juice and jalapeño for the most requested taste of the summer.
- 2oz Tequila Reposado
- 1oz light agave nectar
- 1oz fresh lime juice
- 3 slices of jalapeño
- Glassware: rocks glass
- Ice: Kold-Draft
- Garnish: jalapeño lime flag, gunpowder salt
- Add ingredients in tin, shake vigorously and strain over fresh ice.
Cocktail: Yellow Tail
Sweet and zesty, Seaspice’s Yellow Tail is the perfect cocktail jam as it has a perennial effect much like the upbeat pop sounds onNicky Jam and J Balvin’s X (Equis), which you will inevitably keep on repeat.
- 1 ½ oz. Pisco 100
- ¾ oz. lime juice
- ¾ tablespoon sugar
- 1 oz. passion fruit juice
- Muddle basil and jalapeño in the shaker. Add in all the ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain contents on the rocks and garnish with jalapeño and a basil leaf.
Cocktail: Piscine Mojito
For crisp summer nights, whip up a Piscine Mojito, which infuses Rosé Piscine with elderflower liqueur, lime and mint lives, as you mellow out with the most requested song – Perfect by Ed Sheeran.
