Upper West Side, Manhattan
Top Manhattan Liquor Store Shares 4 Refreshing Summer Cocktails, Manhattan, New York

Summer is finally here—it’s time to fire up the grill and mix a few cocktails to celebrate! Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits is the Upper West Side’s premier liquor store, and they have a wide selection to choose from for your summer-themed concoctions. Below, their staff shares some of their favorite summer cocktails guaranteed to keep you cool.

4 Signature Summer Cocktails

1. Mango & Pineapple Rum Cocktail

Liquor StoreNothing says summer like a tropical rum cocktail! Puree 2½ small, ripe mangoes in a blender with 4 ounces of rum and ½ cup of water. Pour 2 ounces of the puree into one of six glasses and top with ice and pineapple juice. Garnish with fresh mango or any tropical fruit of your choosing.

2. Coconut Prosecco Spritzer

Wine spritzers are perfect for light cocktails before grilling or a summer garden party. In a chilled glass, muddle 1 slice of lime, add 1½ ounces of coconut water, a ½ ounce of simple syrup, and a splash of grenadine. Top with Prosecco or Cava and garnish with a lime slice.

3. The Singapore Sling

The Singapore Sling is a classic and the perfect summer combination of gin, orange liqueur, and pineapple juice. Simply combine 1¼ ounces of gin with ¼ ounce of orange liqueur and 4 ounces of pineapple juice. Garnish with a lime wheel and pineapple wedge.

4. Mint, Cucumber, & Vodka Cocktail

A cool, crisp combination, you can’t go wrong this summer with mint, cucumber, and vodka. Peel 2 English cucumbers (reserve 4 thin spears with skin on for garnish), scrape out the seeds, and then chop and puree in a food processor until smooth. Strain through a sieve to eliminate as much liquid as possible. Then, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add 1 cup of loosely packed mint, 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, and 3 tablespoons of lime juice. Add ¾ cup of the cucumber puree, 1 ounce of vodka, and ½ ounce of Cointreau—shake. Strain into 4 ice-filled glasses, garnish with cucumber, and enjoy!
