Southeast Florida Summer Coolers

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Thursday, July 21st, 2022 at 3:19pm.

Summer in Southeast Florida would not be complete without a watermelon cocktail or mocktail around the pool. Enjoy summer light cocktails before they lose their enticing coolness. Sizzling summer temperatures call for a batch of refreshing drinks. Whether enjoyed poolside, on the boat, at the beach, or on the front porch, fresh and flavorful, watermelon cocktails can help keep you cool.

Capture that sweet taste of summer in a fresh watermelon martini. The recipe uses fresh juice, which is easy to make in the blender, or you can go the low-tech route and mash it up with a muddler. Choose a great vodka and be sure to use fresh lime juice and homemade simple syrup. Shake it all up, and you will have the freshest, fruitiest martini possible.

Watermelon lemonade is an ideal on tap fridge beverage for summer. Start by juicing the lemons and watermelon and developing the ideal balance of sweet and tart flavors to fit your taste. Even if this is your first time making fresh-squeezed lemonade, it is easy, and the results are delicious.

Cucumber is one of the best flavor combinations for fresh watermelon. To show off this perfect match, mix up the watermelon cucumber cooler. With a floral gin base, fresh lime, a hint of syrup, and soda for sparkle, it is easy to mix up and perfect for an afternoon on the patio. Skip the gin for a refreshing mocktail. 

Whip up any of these light summer cocktails/mocktails, pour over ice, toss in a cute, colorful umbrella, and enjoy!
