As the seasons change in the Northern Hemisphere so often do our taste in cocktail recipes with the warmer summer months heralding a change to delicious fresh tasting concoctions which quench the thirst! The heavier mixes traditionally more popular in winter tend to take somewhat of a back seat.
One of the wide range of Tequila drinks which proves popular in the warm summer months is The Paloma. Fresh tasting and a real thirst quencher this cocktail recipe offers a light fruity texture which is love by many cocktail fans. Here’s a typical
Paloma cocktail recipe.
Slice of lemon
1 pink grapefruit
30ml lime juice
20ml sugar syrup
60ml pink grapefruit juice
20ml soda water
If you like you can use salt for rimming the glass although this is a personal preference.
For vodka lovers another lively summer cocktail recipe is the Tatanka. Here’s a typical recipe for it.
Tatanka cocktail recipe
1 apple, to decorate
40ml Zubrowka vodka
80ml fresh, cloudy apple juice
1 tsp Cinnamon sugar (equal parts sugar to cinnamon)
You should not shake this drink, it is meant to be stirred. The traditional recipe would call for a unique brand of Polish vodka with a twist of apple flavour to it and a piece of bison grass in the bottle but in our experience any Vodka you like will do the job.
Pimms is another quintessential summer cocktail mix and whilst there are dozens of ways of making cocktail recipes with Pimms here’s one of our favorites.
Pimms Spritz Cocktail Recipe

In closing this post, as a general tip to summer cocktails you should use fresh light ingredients such as mint, lime and lemon. Happy cocktail drinking.

Cocktail Recipes is pleased to bring you this fabulous cocktail recipe which is every girls dream. The hot Frenchman!. Why, I’d love a Hot Frenchman I hear you say. The name of this drink just cracks me up and I just had to produce this amongst my featured cocktail recipes after trying it for myself. Anyway, I’m happily married and this is a family show . Actually, it seems inappropriately named to me because this is more or less a warm basic sangria, in which case it would be more aptly named a Hot Spaniard?
4 oz red wine
3/4 oz orange liqueur like Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 oz orange juice
1/4 oz lemon juice
1 twist orange peel
1 twist lemon peel
Heat well in a heat-resistant glass or cup. Stir, add twists of lemon and orange peel, and serve. Ooh la la!
Happy cocktail drinking as you try out this fabulous cocktail recipe.
Here at cocktail recipes we are always on the lookout for unusual cocktails which we have not tried before (or in some cases heard of). In this case I don’t think it will matter what type of brandy you use but, if you are a Brandy lover you will enjoy this delicious mixture.
11/2 oz. Korbel California Brandy
I couldn’t find a suitable photo of this drink so here goes with a really spooky sunset!

The Cement Mixer
Yep, you heard that right. The cement mixer! This is not so much a cocktail in all truth but an interesting sensation in any event. It is not as much about the taste as it is the texture.
All you need to do is to swirl some lime juice around in your mouth and then take a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream. The resulting chunky curdling sensation you will get in your mouth before you wallow is not something you’ll have experienced before either. The Baileys will stick to your teeth and gums so beware!
Once again folks, yep, you read it right. The following is a recipe for the cocktail, ‘motor oil’. Sounds gross but it is actually pleasant and potent as hell so don’t do too many of them or you’ll have as big a headache as if you’d consumed actual motor oil!
Mix together a shot each of Jagermeister, peppermint schnapps, cinnamon schnapps and coconut rum and trust me, it will look pretty gross but taste quite yummy.
Mix together equal parts bourbon, peppermint schnapps, ouzo, Jagermeister, Goldschlager and blue curacao. It combines the flavors of flavors of whiskey, peppermint, black liquorice, jager, cinnamon and orange and frankly, it is really quirky and doesn’t taste that flash but the purpose of this post is to bring you some truly bizarre cocktail recipes which folks have concocted over the years.
