Summer is the perfect time to get together with your friends and have a few parties.
There are three factors which we believe can make or break a summer party. The first is people. The second is food. The third is our expertise, drinks! Drinks can add a little extra fun to any get together, especially if you follow these fun party drink ideas.
Party Drink Idea #1 – Peppermint Patty
Even when the weather is hot, you can cool down your guests with a minty fresh drink! The Peppermint Patty combines minty freshness with a hint of chocolate. It consists of a shot of peppermint schnapps followed by a squirt of chocolate syrup. The two mix in your mouth to make a delicious party drink which is sure to bring a little excitement to your get together. If you’re not quite looking for party drink ideas which are taken out of a shot glass, this drink can be modified to be a mixed-drink by combining the following:
- 2 oz. of Irish cream
- 1 oz. of peppermint schnapps
- 1. oz. of chocolate syrup
Party Drink Idea #2 – Piña Colada
Party drink ideas are the best when they fit the theme of the party. A piña colada is the perfect way to top off a beach-themed party. A piña colada is a rum-based drink blended with ice, pineapple juice, and coconut crème. Follow this recipe to make the perfect combination of the three, but don’t be afraid to change up this classic recipe by adding fresh pineapple or even strawberries!
- 2 oz. of pineapple juice
- 2 oz. of light rum
- 1 ½ oz. of coconut crème
Party Drink Idea #3 – Blue Ocean Cocktail
If you are in search for more unique party drink ideas, the blue ocean cocktail is a great deviation from standard beach drinks. This cocktail may be a signature drink of the Florida Keys, but it can work anywhere. It is a vodka based drink mixed with blue curacao, grapefruit juice, and sweetened with simple syrup. The curacao flavor combines with the grapefruit to give your party guests a sip of tropical paradise. The following recipe will have people raving about your party drink ideas the whole night!
- 1 oz. of vodka
- ½ oz. of blue curacao
- 1/3 oz. of grapefruit juice
- ¼ oz. of simple syrup
Party Drink Idea #4 – Salty Dog
Great party drink ideas don’t have to be complicated. The salty dog is the ultimate testament to this statement. It is a great summer drink that won’t take long to make, but will satisfy your party guests’ palates. It is as simple as a salt rimmed glass, containing your choice of gin or vodka and grapefruit juice. To make this drink a little more exciting, you can add a little ruby red grapefruit juice to the mix. However, the traditional recipe is as follows:
- 1 oz. of gin or vodka
- 3 oz. of grapefruit juice
- Salt rimmed glass
