Cocktails By The Pool : Two Easy Recipes For Summer Cocktails

When I think about the summer, or more precisely about summer vacations and pool parties, this is the picture that comes to my mind – the sky is blue, the sun is shining and I'm sitting by the pool in a bikini with a summery cocktail in my hand.

 

There's no point in denying it – cocktails are totally my guilty pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Before our last trip to Crete, I got a very interesting offer from the JR DUTY FREE alcohol department – to make 2 easy recipes for cocktails that will be so good, we won't want to stop sipping them all summer long. I didn't think twice, and I accepted the challenge – after all, easy recipes are exactly what I like to make and share here on the blog, and it's been a while since I last shared a quick and easy cocktail recipe with you.

Early in the morning, just before our flight, we walked around the Duty-Free to choose the ingredients for my new cocktails. My plan was to go for special alcoholic drinks, which would set the tone for the cocktail and make it delicious and easy to prepare without playing games.

Two steps into the Duty-Free, I caught sight of stands that promoted new drinks – Revel Stoke, a Canadian whiskey in different flavors, and Vine Smoothie, a Dutch fruity liquor based on wine. Whiskey, honestly, was never my cup of tea, but I decided to give it a chance because of the taste twist, which I believed would blend well in a cocktail.

The whiskey comes in five flavors : apple, pineapple, pecan, maple and honey, and the taste? It's actually surprising how tasty it is. I especially liked the last three flavors and decided to take the honey flavored whiskey since I had already started thinking of a recipe that suited its tastes… The second drink, the Vine Smoothie, I knew I was going to take already at first sight – after all, I love smoothies and I love wine, what could go wrong? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now there was only one question left – which flavor to choose – strawberry, berries, pineapple – coconut and peach. They were all tasty but I ended up deciding to go with the peach. By the way, this delicious liqueur is made from French chardonnay, Dutch cream and natural fruit and is gluten-free, so you can drink it without too much guilt ๐Ÿ˜‰

Equipped with two new bottles, a cocktail shaker in my suitcase and ideas for cocktails in my head,ย  I boarded the flight to Crete and couldn't wait for the moment when I would put my holiday uniform on and try out my new cocktails ๐Ÿ™‚

And here are the results… ๐Ÿ˜‰
