Been in the desert for too long and feeling parched? Or sitting on the beach in the sun all day? Here’s the 7 Best Summer Drinks for That Unquenchable Thirst. What make s a good drink for the warmer months? Well usually in summer you get a thirst that could kill a camel and certain drinks don’t satisfy a mouth as dry as leather. We’ve chosen some of th best drinks to get you back the saliva in your mouth just in time to drool over the hot person walking past you.
1 Caiparinha– our personal favourite. Citrus is great for quenching a thirst, but the best of citrus is the lime. This cocktail combines Brazilian Cachaça rum, sugar, lime and lemonade. The final touch is is to crush the limes yourself in your glass and then mix in the sugar. Do this first before drinking all the rum that normally sits down the bottom
2 Mojito– a refreshing Cuban drink, combining white Cuban rum, Havana Club or Don Añejo, mixed with mint, lime juice and sugar. The mixture of lime and mint can be really refreshing and can really get you back to your best.
3 Singapore Sling– created in the famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore, this drink combines Gin, Cherry Liqueur, Cointeau, Benedictine, pineapple and lemon juice and goes down a treat on a typical steamy Singapore day
4 Daquiris– we’re talking the frozen types. What could be more refreshing than a crushed ice fruit flavoured drink with an alcohol mixed in to enhance your social skills. Usually white rum mixed with lime juice and sugar, there are other types with Maraschino cherry, banana, strawberry and one with tequila instead of rum
5 Margarita- popular in the United States, this tequila based cocktail combines Cointreau and lime juice to get the saliva flowing again
6 Piña Colada- a very sweet drink thanks to the coconut cream this great cocktail has white rum, cool pineapple and coconut cream mixed together, a favourite with the women
7 Sangria– normally red wine which is good for warming up the bodies temperature (better for winter), mixed with any spirit of your choice, usually white, orange juice and fruits thrown in to soak up the alcohol, there are so many variatians out there, but the main ingredients should always be red wine and chopped up fruits
8 Long Island Ice Tea– what better thing on a warm day than a nice refreshing ice tea, quite a stiff drink with vodka, rum, gin and tequila, mixed with cola, sometimes has also lemon juice and ice tea added to it. The best thing about this drink is that it will stop you from moving because of it’s strength, that way you won’t get warm
9 Teenage Mutant Ninja Cocktail– best served cold, this great drink combines vodka, melon midori, cointreau, tequila and lemonade, and looks green hence the name.
Strangely enough during our investigation, we found the commonly drinks that contained lime juice or other citrus were popular, and also those that contained ice. The great thing with a lot of these that don’t really taste like cocktails but beware of the light feeling you’ll get when it finally hits you. Now with these great drinks you’re bound to cool back down and relax, after that hard day
