The temperature is rising. 

This means that your patrons will be expecting cool summer cocktail drinks to enjoy at your bar. With wonderful colours and tastes, you need to serve summer cocktail drinks at your bar to spice things up a bit. 

Go the extra mile and introduce a nice summer theme at your establishment to attract more customers and become the talk of the town. With Mosaic’s newly launched stock beer coasters, you could be the bar with the great beer mat collection! There’s your USP!

Since cocktail sales increase by a significant amount during the summer season, featuring an enticing bar menu can work wonders for your bar.

However, it’s difficult to choose from a long list of drinks that are all great for the warm season.

To help you out, this article lists all of our favourite summer cocktails to serve at your bar and impress your patrons.

Let’s get started!

1. Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule features a gingery aroma and has a cold chill, which causes the drink to crackle. This cocktail uses vodka, cold ginger beer, and some lime juice to top off its strong taste.

For aesthetics, we highly recommend serving it in a copper mug with a stirring rod, so your customers can enjoy it cold. It’s best to have this drink after sipping on some beer first.

2. Gin Gimlet

The Gin Gimlet is a delightful two-ingredient cocktail. Serve this in a classy cocktail glass to show off its shiny colour. It’s a straightforward drink that is a heavenly combination of London Dry Gin and sweetened Rose lime juice.

Throw these together in a cocktail shaker and this cocktail is ready to be served. Garnish it with lime and you’ve got a drink that will be an instant hit at your bar.

3. Mojito

A Mojito is just the cocktail you need to refresh your customers and encourage them to try other items on your menu. With rum, muddled lime juice, and club soda, this drink is wildly popular during the warmer months.

Serve it in a small Collins glass and add some cracked ice and mint leaves to bring out its cold and fizzy taste. Don’t forget to place it on your branded beer mat to avoid water rings on the table. 

4. French 75

The French 75 might look like a typical lemon juice cocktail but it has enough alcohol in it to get a person tipsy. It’s a sneaky drink and contains a good amount of London Dry Gin and Brut Champagne.

After mixing gin, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker, strain it into a Collins glass half-full of cracked ice. The French 75 is a strong cocktail that can be relished to your heart’s content in the summer.

5. Margarita

The Margarita is the traditional summer cocktail that you need to have on your bar menu this season. It uses tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and salt. The key to making a good margarita is to use 100% agave tequila.

Otherwise, you’ll have a subpar cocktail and customers may not enjoy sipping on it. Use a classic cocktail glass and you’ll have an easy drink for your visitors to enjoy!

6. Daiquiri

The Daiquiri is typically served as a slushie with strawberry flavouring but it’s a simple cocktail if you make it traditionally. You need to mix white rum, sugar, and lime with ice and then strain it into a cocktail glass.

It’s widely known as a beach drink, as most of its ingredients are of a tropical descent. However, with sweet sugar and fresh lime juice for good balance, it’s a refreshing drink that you can serve in any locale.

7. The Manhattan

The Manhattan is a brazen drink, rich in flavour that’s spicy and sweet. It features a good amount of bourbon, sweet vermouth, and aromatic bitters. Stir them with cracked ice and pour it directly into a cocktail glass to serve it to your customers.

It’s one of the easier cocktails and can also be made at home, so you don’t have to worry about adding it to your bar menu.
