2 Amazing New York Inspired Summer Cocktails


One of the things I love the most about New York City is the cocktails -my boyfriend would argue it’s actually all about the craft beer – but he’s wrong.

Luckily, on my recent trip to New York I managed to sample a few – all in the name of research obviously – and I’ll do a few New York guides (if you’d like?) on the best places to eat/drink/play. But for now, here are two new favourite cocktails that I wanted to share with you – hopefully, these will make a great addition to your summer BBQ’s and parties.

Lady Liberty Cosmo – The Heartland Brewery.


1 ½ parts Grey Goose vodka
½ part Cointreau liqueur
1 parts cranberry juice
¼ part fresh lime juice
Cubed ice

Add all ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and double strain into large cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wheel.

Blue Hawaii – Flatiron Lounge

1 1/2 parts White rum
1 1/2 blue curaçao
1 tsp coconut cream
2 parts pineapple juice

Add all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake then strain into a glass. Serve over ice.
