No matter how wacky New England weather can be, we’re always in the mood for a cool cocktail during the summer months. Beach days, patio weather, outdoor dining — they’re all the perfect settings for a fresh, fun, or even fancy cocktail. Read on for some of the tastiest cocktails we’ve had this summer.
Cherry Blossom Highball at Precinct Bar + Kitchen – Nothing says summer more than a drink with an umbrella. With cherry blossoms, to boot! Precinct’s patio is the spot to be, and we’re loving this drink made with Roku gin, cherry blossom tea, Fever Tree sparkling lime and yuzu soda. And it’s quite the instagrammy drink, don’t ya think?
Boston Bramble Drink (B.B.D) at The Pearl – Affectionately called the BBD, this drink is made with Uncle Nearest 1884 Whiskey, blackberry puree, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and simple syrup. It’s fruity, it’s fun, and it’s a strong one, friends! It’s the perfect treat before digging into The Pearl’s vast array of fresh, local seafood. Cocktails and raw bar? You’re calling our name!
Blue Hawaii at Shore Leave A tropical escape right here in Boston? You got it. Named after a sailor’s leisure time off shore, Shore Leave brings you an atmosphere that will have you drifting off to vacation. While there, go for this gorgeous drink made with vodka, rum, pineapple, and blue curaçao. Goodbye stress, hello serenity in the city!
The Ack Nauti at The Nautilus – Named after the classic cocktail “The Nautilus”, the Ack Nauti is made with tequila, fresh cranberry juice, lime, and mint. It’s a cool play on the restaurant name and super fitting as Nantucket is the cranberry capital of the world. You’ll love sipping on one at their bar — a cozy, familiar place to sit in a gorgeous restaurant.
Patron Abeja Loco at Para Maria – Feelin’ frisky? This is one sassy cocktail. Made with Patron Reposado, Fruitations grapefruit, elderflower, lime, and a splash of prosecco, this drink will have you saying “Olé!” It’s perfectly balanced with a variety of fruit juices and that Patron prosecco combo will have you dancing all night long. Don’t forget to try some of Para Maria’s killer tacos to make it a full fiesta.
