Cheers to the Weekend

There’s nothing better than long summer days and lazing pool side (or hot tub – side), with a frosty drink in hand. Check out the recipes below for some of our favourites, and avoid dehydration between hot tub soaks this weekend!

Summer Drink Ideas from Beachcomber


Tequila Sunrise



2 tsp grenadine


50 ml tequila

1 tbsp triple sec

1 large orange, or 2 small ones, juiced

½ lemon, juiced

1 cocktail cherry


  1. Pour the grenadine into the base of a tall glass and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, triple sec and fruit juices. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels cold.
  2. Add a few ice cubes to the serving glass then carefully double strain the cocktail into it, trying not to disturb the grenadine layer too much. Add more ice if needed to fill the glass then garnish with a cherry on a stick or cocktail umbrella.



Berry Splash



50 ml vodka

25 ml peach schnapps

100 ml cranberry juice

Dash of lime juice


Wedge of lime


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add the vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice and a few drops of lime juice. Shake well then strain into a tumbler with extra ice. Garnish with a wedge of lime.



Raspberry Fizz



4 raspberries

25 ml raspberry liqueur (such as Chambord)



  1. Put four raspberries in a mortar and crush with a pestle.
  2. Scoop the crushed raspberries into a champagne flute, add the raspberry liqueur, then top with chilled champagne.



Melon Punch



1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped into small chunks

Small mint bunch, leaves picked

500 ml vodka

6 limes juiced, plus wedges to serve

200 g sugar

1-2 small melons (ie. ½ honeydew, ½ cantaloupe, and ½ watermelon)

1 L sparkling water, chilled


  1. Put the cucumber and half the mint in a large bowl or jug, and pour over the vodka. Cover and leave to steep for at least 24 hrs or for up to 1 week in the fridge, stirring every few days. Strain through a fine sieve.
  2. Pour the vodka, lime juice and sugar into a larger jug. Stir well.
  3. Using a melon baller, scoop out as many melon balls as you can. Add them to the jug and leave to steep for 30 mins-1 hr in the fridge. Top up with sparkling water and add the remaining mint leaves just before serving with extra lime wedges.



Pina Colada



1 1/2 cup ice

1/2 cup diced pineapple, frozen

2 oz pineapple juice

2 oz Coco Lopez coconut cream

1 1/2 oz white rum

1 oz dark rum

Pineapple slices


Blend the ice, frozen pineapple, juice, coconut cream, and the white and dark together, until smooth and frosty. Pour into glasses and garnish the rim with pineapple slices.
