Fun Drink Recipes to Get You Through the Week

Whether or not you are working, Monday always seems to be too far from Friday, and Friday too close to the following Monday. These fun recipes are here to help these weeks in solidarity seem a little more fast paced. Most of these drinks contain alcohol, so please enjoy responsibly!

1. Tropical Pineapple Juice:

  • 1 cup of white rum
  • 1/3 cup of Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 1/2 cup + a splash of coconut water
  • 1 3/4 cup of pineapple juice
  • 5 tbsp of lime juice

2. Espresso Martini:

  • 1 1/3 parts vodka
  • 2/3 part Kahlua
  • 2/3 part espresso
  • 3 whole coffee beans (as garnish)
  • ice cubes

I like to add a little sugar or simple syrup if you like your drinks on the sweet side.

3. Honey Deuce:

  • 1 1/4 oz of vodka
  • 3 oz of fresh squeezed lemonade
  • 1/2 oz Chambord or premium raspberry liquor
  • crushed ice
  • frozen honeydew melon bars for garnish

4. Whiskey Sour:

  • 1 1/2 oz of whiskey
  • 1 1/2 oz of fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • garnish: maraschino cherry or lemon peel

You can even add an egg white to the shaker which makes the texture silky, but of course you can leave it out if the egg is too much for your taste.

5. Virgin White Grape Spritzer:

  • 1/2 cup of frozen green grapes
  • 1/2 cup of frozen red grapes
  • 1 thinly sliced orange
  • 1 thinly sliced lemon
  • 4 cups of chilled bottled ginger ale
  • 4 cups of white grape juice

This is a clean, refreshing drink perfect for a day by the pool. You can share or add a little vodka and keep it all for yourself.

Wine & Beers to try:

  • San Antonio Cardinale Sweet Red American
  • Villa Alena Moscato D’Asti
  • New Castle
  • Mango Cart
  • June Shine Blood Orange Mint
