Sub Tropical Sensations: 5 cocktail recipes to impress your mates this summer

As the mercury starts to rise on the east coast of Australia, we start to dream and crave those beautiful tropical flavours that make us think and reminisce about those perfect sun-drenched summer days – perhaps you’re in the midst of the perfect backyard barbecue or chilling with your crew beachside. Well, regardless of location we’ve collected a few of our favourite summer cocktails that are sure to turn a few heads and may even position you as this summer's go-to mixologist for the foreseeable future.

Something Refreshing

When the temperature is increasing, you sometimes want a beverage that is both cool and flavourful. Our Pacific Mule delivers both; it strikes a balance between lime and tropical flavours and just a touch of spice from ginger beer on top.

A Taste of the Sub-Tropics

When the sun is high in the sky and you want a drink that reminds you of rolling surf, ocean spray, and the mouthwatering flavours of summer, The Sunny Coast Sunset is just what you’ve been looking for. Ideal for daydreaming about those lazy beach days or even those lucky days when you can actually visit and enjoy it.

Make one yourself with our Pineapple Parfait Gin

Classic for a reason

It’s quick, cheap, hard to mess up and, yes, is very low in calories and sugar. A Vodka Lime & Soda is classic and hard to turn down, offering a refreshing zesty hit that goes down smooth all summer long.

The taste of the Sunshine Coast

A real slice of local sunshine coast flavour, our Orignal Cane Spirit is made from freshly juiced Maroochy River sugar cane, wild fermented and double distilled —with just a little sweet cane juice added. Combining the zest of the muddled limes really lets the Near North take form into a refreshing beverage that’ll have you reaching for another straight after the first sip.

A Fruity Fantasy

Our Pineapple Parfait Gin has been known for already making people a little nostalgic for the summers of yesteryear, but why not take this beauty and turn it into a summer cocktail for the ages? Combining the tropical dessert of flavours of our Pineapple Parfait Gin with a splash of tonic water creates a delightfully refreshing beverage that’s a go-to beverage all night long.
