The 10 Most Popular Summer Cocktails On Our Site

The warmer season is at our doorstep, and aside from grilled eats and frozen treats, a cold and refreshing cocktail also comes standard during the summer months. Here are 10 of the most popular alcoholic beverages on our site; you all seem to love them, and for good reason!

1. Mojito

Hailing from Cuba, the mojito is a popular rum-based drink with mint, lime juice and sugar. Summer just isn’t summer without a tall glass during happy hour!

2. Aperol Spritz

A classic aperitif in Italy, the aperol spritz is a summertime must on our side of the Atlantic, too! It’s a simple cocktail to concoct; so simple that you’ll find yourself making it often with dinner.

3. Sangria

A pitcher of sangria on a patio with friends is the epitome of summer. Sweet, fruity and boozy, it’s a drink that goes down a bit too easily, so be sure to drink responsibly.

4. Frozen Margarita

Want the perfect drink to go with your taco feast? Nothing goes better than a frozen, frosty margarita!

5. Piña Colada

This sweet, creamy and frothy piña colada tastes like summer in a glass. After all, rum, coconut and pineapple are just a classic flavour combination!

6. Bloody Caesar 

The Bloody Caesar is considered Canada’s cocktail, as it was invented in Calgary over 40 years ago. This savoury and spicy drink features tomato and clam juice, vodka, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and pairs perfectly with spicy shrimp skewers.

7. Hugo Spritz

This drink was created about 15 years ago in the province of South Tyrol, as a refreshing and low-alcohol variation of the Aperol Spritz. This Prosecco-based drink has hints of elderflower and is the ultimate warm weather drink.

8. Negroni

Based out of Mexico, this tequila-based paloma is both sweet and tart, and has a gorgeous pink hue. It’s absolutely refreshing and great to enjoy poolside.
