With the summer heat still scorching and the days still long, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing cocktail with friends and family. The staff at SOHO is mixing up some great ones – including one of my favorites, the Pomegranate Lava Lamp. Made with Prosecco, Pomegranate Liqueur and Fresh Lemon Juice, the Lava Lamp is full of bubbly goodness.
One other tasty cocktail on SOHO’s list is the Spiked Watermelon martini – Square One Cucumber Vodka and Watermelon Liqueur are mixed to create a delicious drink. If you need a pick-me-up, why not consider an Expresso martini featuring Stoli Vanilla, Kahlua, Baileys, a shot of expresso and a splash of cream?
Finally, another great cocktail choice is the classic mojito. Nothing cools you off on a hot day quite like a mojito. SOHO’s bartenders mix ours with fresh mint. If you’re interested in whipping up a batch of mojitos at home, here’s a great recipe:
Classic Mojito (serves 4)
6 ounces light rum
12 mint leaves, 8 broken apart
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 tablespoons sugar
4 slices lime
Place ice in shaker. Add rum, 8 broken mint leaves, lime juice and sugar. Shake well and serve over ice in a high ball glass. Top of each glass with a splash of club soda. Garnish each drink with a slice of lime and mint leaf.
