Summer Cocktails: Summer Solstice Gin Cocktail | Pottery Barn


Refreshing summer cocktails are an essential when relaxing by the pool, taking in the beautiful weather. Elayne Duff, our mixologist shares a great recipe for a gin cocktail called the summer solstice.

To make this gin cocktail, you'll need: fresh lemon juice, club soda, aromatic bitters, simple syrup and orange liqueur. The base of the cocktail is Tanqueray No. Ten gin. Infuse the gin with strawberries to impart a summery flavor. Hull strawberries and cut them in half. Add them to a sealable container full of gin. Let it infuse for 24 hours so the flavors mingle.

The first ingredient of the Summer Solstice gin cocktail is three quarters of an ounce of simple syrup. Next, pour in half an ounce of orange liqueur and three quarters of an ounce of lemon juice in the shaker. Add a couple of dashes of bitters. The infused gin comes next. Strain the gin before using it. We'll use about an ounce and a quarter of the gin. Add some ice to the shaker and give it a shake.

While serving summer cocktails over ice, a gentle shake is all that is needed. Another great tip for summer cocktails is adding the club soda in the shaker itself. Don't shake the drink, merely stir it gently. Sugarcane makes a great garnish for this drink. Add a stalk or two of sugarcane along with a strawberry as garnish for the drink.

Some cowboys were said to be so desperate at the saloons they threw back a mixture of gin and strychnine, while some speculate that the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in winter because they ran out of beer.

Crack Open Mountain Cold Refreshment


Coors takes pride in our process and ingredients that make The World's Most Refreshing Beer.

Barley Malt
A two-row lager malt made from 100% American-grown high country Moravian barley. It’s what gives our beer a brilliant, golden color.

Corn Syrup (Not High-Fructose Corn Syrup)
A sugar source converted into alcohol in the fermentation process. None of it ends up in the final product but it’s used to lighten the overall body and deliver a more refreshing beer.

Hops Extract
These are natural extracts from whole hops. We use a unique blend of different hop varieties to get consistent flavor and balanced aroma.

Water
We use pure water from ancient aquifers, deep lakes and Rocky Mountain springs to make a more refreshing beer. As a vital ingredient, we’re committed to leading water stewardship which is why we’ve partnered with our farmers to reduce water usage by as much as 25% while growing our high country Moravian barley.

Lager Yeast
It’s what converts sugars into alcohol for a cleaner, crisper beer.
