The Dog Days of Summer are Here so Let’s Cool Down with the Water Experience & These Cocktails at JW Marriott San Antonio
Here are a couple of cocktail recipes perfect for this summer!
Love My Lemontini for Independence Day
Celebrating America’s Independence Day in and around San Antonio – the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa offers a bright ‘lemonade-like’ cocktail for this hot summer holiday. It is crisp, clean, and the best way to show off those top-shelf vodkas in the bar.
Vodka is the most mixable and useful spirit in the bar. It pairs well with any flavor, from sweet to savory and dry to spicy. The Texas Lemontini is a vodka cocktail mixed for everyone – and it is unbelievably simple. Come join the fun just North of the city and relish a moment at the lobby bar – Crooked Branch.
2 oz Dripping Springs Texas Vodka
0.5 oz Limoncello Liquor
Build vodka and Limoncello in shaker tin, muddle 5 blueberries for 20 seconds then shaker with ice and strain into martini glass. Brown sugar rim on Martini glass. Garnish with a Blueberry lemon wheel.
Happy Fourth of July!
Mojito Repeato for National Mojito Day
There are many things to enjoy about this Blueberry Mojito, offered at the Rivertop Bar at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. One of its best aspects is that it uses common ingredients, making it very easy to mix up. The J. Wray Rum mixes beautifully with the blueberries. It not only adds a darker berry flavor without overpowering the fresh berries, but it acts as the drink’s sweetener as well.
The Blueberry Mojito is a fruity variation on the Mojito that plays up the best fruit of the summer season, blueberries. The fruits are muddled along with the mint to extract their sweet juices, which intermingle nicely with the crisp, refreshing herb.
Mix, Drink, Repeato!
1.5 oz House Infused Blueberry Rum (J. Wray Rum, Blueberries and Sugar)
0.5 oz Agave
Splash Club Soda
2 Lime wedges
6 – 8 fresh mint
Muddle limes and mint, add rum and agave, stir and pour into glass with ice, top with club soda.
Garnish with lime wedge on cup and fresh blueberries in drink.
Happy National Mojito Day – July 11th!
