4 Drink Ideas For Your Upcoming Pool Party
If you plan to have a pool party with your adult friends and family, there’s little that goes better with a warm night at the pool than a refreshing cocktail. With your favorite poolside drinks, you can give your summer a themed flavor and make your in-ground pool the place to be. Whether you’re ringing in the first summer since 2019 that you can spend with others or you’re heralding the end of the summer later in the year, here are a few drink ideas that will make your pool party stand out:
Honeysuckle Strawberry Sparkler
This drink perfectly blends spring into summer with a combination of blended strawberries, honey, and honeysuckle vodka — yes, honeysuckle vodka. First, mix sliced strawberries and honey in a blender until they’re smooth. Add the mixture and some honeysuckle vodka into a shaker with ice. Shake, pour, add some club soda, and serve. It’s a great 4th of July drink, but it can be enjoyed throughout the year.
No one wants a sunburn — unless it’s this cocktail. It’s simply made: one ounce of fireball, one ounce of coconut rum, ice in a shaker. Shake the ingredients and strain them into a shot glass before doing sunburn shots with your friends. The drink has a warm amber color that suits the name and a fiery taste that’s smoothed out by the coconut rum. This cocktail won’t really give you a sunburn, but it will give you that warm buzz you were hoping for.
Malibu Sunset Cocktail
You don’t have to be in Malibu to create the feeling of lying on the beach in sunny California. The main ingredient is, of course, Malibu rum. Add some pineapple juice, sweet grenadine simple syrup, and ice and you’re ready to mix. The cool thing about this cocktail is that it doesn’t require a shaker. You can blend the ingredients and serve. This is a great party drink to celebrate a major occasion or just to have friends over.
Pineapple Coconut Margarita
These two main flavors just evoke the feeling of summer no matter where you are. If you’re unable to take a vacation this summer, this margarita will help to transport you on a journey of flavors. It calls for two ounces of tequila, two ounces of pineapple juice, one ounce of coconut milk, one or two ounces of agave nectar, lime juice, and 1 cup of ice. Shake all of these to your shaker, pour, and enjoy.
These are the perfect cocktails to enjoy over a pool party. You can even make a variety so your guests have options. But you don’t have to wait for a party. When you have your own in-ground pool, you can make these cocktails to enjoy for yourself.
