Summer is here! There is no denying it is my favorite season. Mostly for the ease of pace, cat naps in the sun, road trip playlists, and longer nights spent with great company. Iconic Cocktail Co landed on my radar because their drinks reminded me of summer sunsets with their golden and bright pink hues. They are a best seller at AM because they taste as good as they look!
My birthday is in a couple of days, so we have been celebrating here and there this whole month. These recipes happen to be the best of what we've been toasting with— three of our current happy hour staples (including samples of our favorite glassware).
The recipes feature Prickly Pear Sour, Grapefruit Fleur de Sel, and the newly returned Watermelon Rose Tonic!
Featuring Grapefruit Fluer de Sel + Anita Amber Glass
1.5 oz Grapefruit Fleur de Sel
2 oz Blanco Tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
2oz Brut Champagne
Mix Grapefruit Fleur de Sel, tequila, and lime juice in a tall glass with ice. Granish with lime wheels and top off with Champagne* to make a gradient.
*Feel free to sub the Champagne for Club Soda or a Grapefruit Mineral Water
Interstate Love Song
Featuring Watermelon Rose Tonic + Iris Amber Rocks Glass
1 oz Watermelon Rose Tonic
1 oz lime juice
2 oz tequila
Salt the rim (feel free to add a little Tajin or your own variation to the salt), pour all the ingredients in a rocks glass with ice, add basil for garnish.
Featuring Prickly Pear Sour + Double Wall Glass (restock soon)
1 oz Prickly Pear Sour
2 oz White Rum
1 oz Lime Juice
2 oz Club Soda
Pour everything over ice, and top off with Club Soda! Garnish with lime wheel and spanked mint. This will also make a great big batch cocktail if you're hosting a larger bubble.
