It’s the dead of summer and much of Canada is experiencing a serious heat wave. Beating the heat can be difficult, some people crank up the air, some roll down the windows, others hop in the pool or lake, and some people embrace the heat on a patio with a frosty cold beverage. Here’s a list of the top 5 summer drinks to keep you cool:
Have the taste of Mexico in a glass. There is no better mix to take the sting out of tequila than lime and triple sec. Top this in a salt rimmed glass for a cool refreshing drink that will get your night off to a great start.
4. Strawberry Daiquiris
This sweet, frozen concoction brings back childhood memories of 7-11 slurpees with the added benefit of rum. A great drink to sip while sitting by, or floating in the pool.
3. Pina Coladas
Another top-notch frozen cocktail topped off with white rum. The biggest challenge in the heat is to drink these coconut flavoured beverages before they melt.
Mojitos are freshness in a glass. A mix of limes mulled with sugar and mint, this drink is a blast of cool air on a hot day. When they are made right, the taste and smell of mint and lime meet in a party with your senses. Picture yourself sitting back on the beach of an all inclusive resort, staring at waves and sipping on a mojito, it doesn’t get much better.
In Canada, nothing goes better with summer than ice cold beer. Whether you are at the cottage or on the patio, a few cold ones go great with a sunny afternoon.
Whether you are on a patio in your backyard, or at an all inclusive resort, try out one (or a few) of these drinks to keep you cool in the heat.
