Get your drink on: Summer cocktail recipes to match your shisha flavors

Get your drink on: Summer cocktail recipes to match your shisha flavors

This goes without saying, yet I will say it anyway: This post is intended for those of you who are of legal age to drink. If that is not you, then plug your ears, avert your eyes, and spare your liver. For the big kids - let's quench those internal organs with something cool and tasty for summer!
 
Sure, Hookah-Shisha may be located in the middle of the great country of Texas, but on a hot day, when the wind is just right and our eyes are closed, we can almost feel the gulf breeze tousle out hair and the smells of the tropics filling our nostrils. Yeah...the only time that actually happens is when there's a loaded bowl of Romman Pina Colada stoking away next to us. Let's just double fist those flavors and have a mini backyard beach vacation. As much as I love a good frozen drink, it's just so much work. Doing the thing with the blender and the ice and the noise, forget that. Try a blender-less Pina Colada to sip between puffs:
 
  • 1.5 ounces of coconut rum
  • 6 ounces of pineapple juice
  • 1-2 ounces of coconut milk
Pour over ice, stir, and serve. Booyah.Throw some of that pineapple juice in your base if you're feeling frisky!
Not enough booze-ohol for you in the Pina? Then load up a bowl with some Romman Long Island Iced Tea and empty out that liquor cabinet because it's about to get real:
  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Rum
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Sweet & Sour mix
  • 1-2 oz Cola
  • ice
Stir or shake together and get to work. Make sure you have a designated coal tender, after a few of those bad boys you will be flammable!
 
For the bougie and ambitious (which I just assume if you own a muddler - I am actually just jealous that you had the foresight to buy a muddler), pack up some Starbuzz Passion Fruit Mojito and put a little elbow grease into this sweet treat:
  • 1 Spoon white sugar
  • 2 Oz White Rum
  • Hand full of Mint leaves
  • Half of one lime cut into 3 wedges
  • Splash of club soda
  • 1 Oz Passion fruit puree or one fresh passion fruit contents
  • 1.5 Oz Sweet and Sour Mix
  • 8 Ice cubes or crushed
  • ice
 
  • Step 1: muddle the mint, limes and sugar, muddle until you actually smell the mint.
  • Step 2: Add 2 Oz of Rum
  • Step 3: Add the sweet and sour mix
  • Step 4: Add 8 ice cubes
  • Step 5: Shake it hard! 10 times at least
  • Step 6: Strain into the glass full of crushed ice
  • Step 7: Add 1 Oz of Passion Fruit puree on top
  • Step 8: Top the drink with club soda and stir
  • Step 9: Add 5 fresh new mint leaves and a lime wedge on top and serve it, your perfect mojito is ready to drink!
Alright, that may have been a little too ambitious. Let's take it back down a notch with Fantasia Cosmopolitan and its namesake in liquid form:
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2-ounce Triple Sec
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1-ounce cranberry juice
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and mix vigorously. Stop when the shaker is too cold to hold. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
Finally, maybe you're too unconventional for the exact same flavor of shisha AND beverage. Why not smoke a little Al Fakher Grape Berry and make yourself some sangria. You can even pour some of the sangria into the base water to really give that Grape Berry a full flavor!
  • 1 Bottle of chilled red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja reds, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
  • 1 Lemon cut into wedges
  • 1 Orange cut into wedges
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Shot brandy
  • 2 Cups ginger ale or club soda
Serve over ice, and you're ready to roll!
