Cool Summer Drinks That Won’t Make You Look Like A Pansy

Summer will soon be upon us, and beach drinks are great — but everyone knows that real men don’t imbibe liquor which is hosting a silly umbrella.  Johnnie Blue neat is a perfect choice for that high powered meeting — but less than satisfying within the context of a pool or beach party.  Fortunately, real men have some options when it comes to refreshing drinks which do not entail sacrificing your manly pride.

Electric Lemonade

  • 1.5 oz of your favorite vodka
  • 7-Up or Sprite
  • 1/2 ounce of Blue Curacao
  • 2 oz sweet and sour mix
  • Slice of Lemon or Lime

Simply combine all ingredients except the lemon or lime slice, and blend for 20 seconds, or until smooth.  Serve garnished with lemon or lime slice on the rocks or straight up after vigorous shaking until frigid.

Beach Buster

This easy to make drink is a unique twist on rum-based beach concoctions.

  • 1.5 oz of your favorite dark rum
  • 2.5 oz of Sobe Nirvana

Simply fill a highball glass full of ice and add the two above ingredients — and enjoy.

Island Cooler

This drink is both tasty and refreshing — and you won’t look like a sissy sipping one by the pool.

  • 1.5oz of your favorite white rum
  • 3oz pineapple juice
  • 2oz guava juice
  • 1/2 ounce of your favorite dark rum

Fill a large glass with ice and add the white rum and the two juices.  Shake well.  Strain into chilled glass and float the dark rum on top.  Garnish, if desired, with a pineapple slice.

Sex Wax

With a name like this, how can you go wrong?

  • 1.5oz your favorite dark rum
  • 1 once Southern Comfort
  • 1 ounce of orange juice
  • 1 ounce of pineapple juice
  • 1 shot Coconut Cream liqueur

Mix all ingredients in a large glass filled with ice.  Shake well.  Strain into chilled glass and garnish with either an orange or pineapple slice.

With the above drink choices you can keep refreshed and buzzed without having to look like anything less than a man’s man.
