Arriba amigos, you can never go wrong with this summer classic. Originally from Mexico, Margaritas have been in bars since the 40s, but only got more popular in the 70s.
• 2 oz. tequila.
• 1 oz. Cointreau.
• 1 oz. lime juice.
• Cocktail glass.
• Coarse salt.
• Agave syrup.
1. Chill a cocktail glass, and then rub its rim with lime juice and dip it in coarse salt.
2. Add tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and ice together in a cocktail shaker.
3. Shake and then strain into the glass over ice.
For a skinny version, skip the agave syrup. Another important tip is to make sure to always choose 100 percent agave tequila.
This Italian cocktail is THE drink for this summer. Born in 1919, this go-to Spritz option when mixed with Prosecco becomes the “it drink” of the season.

• 1 splash of club soda.

1. Pour the Prosecco into a Collins glass filled with ice.

Frosé (Frozen Rosé)
Frosé or Frozen Rosé is the new favorite of many people. Simple yet with lots of steps, this drink can guarantee an afternoon of fun with family and friends. You can make within 6 hours before the party starts or 1 week in advance as Rosé wine holds well in the freezer.
• 750 ml bottle of Rosé.
• ½ cup sugar.
• 8 ounces strawberries.
• 2 ½ ounces fresh lemon juice.
1. Pour your favorite rosé into a plastic container and freeze it for six hours.
2. Create your own strawberry syrup by boiling 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a pot.
3. Add eight ounces of sliced strawberries, mix it all up, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
4. Pour the strawberry mixture through a strainer to separate the liquid from the strawberries.
5. Let it chill for 30 minutes.
6. Pour the frozen rosé, syrup, and 2 1/2 ounces of fresh lemon juice into a blender with one cup of ice.
7. Blend and let the mixture chill for just a bit longer until it reaches a milkshake-like consistency.
8. Blend one more time and, finally, you’re ready to drink with friends.
A classic Cuban drink, Mojito is a must to refresh from the heat thanks to cooling properties of lime and mint.
• 2 ounces white rum.
• 1 ounce lime juice.
• 2 teaspoon sugar.
• 8 fresh mint leaves.
• 1 once club soda.
• 1 cup ice.
• Lime slice and mint leaf for garnish.
1. Add lime juice, sugar and eight mint leaves to a cocktail shaker.
2. Muddle the mint into the lime juice and sugar. This releases oils from the mint and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice.
3. Add rum, stir well then pour into a glass filled with ice.
4. Top glass with club soda.
5. Garnish with extra mint leaves and a lime slice.
