Spice Up Your Summer with Easy Bacardi Summer Cocktails

As summer heats up and we begin to head outdoors our cocktails begin to cool down for backyard BBQ’s, pool parties and relaxing afternoons by the beach. Bacardi sets the tone for all things thirst quenching whether the thought is quick and easy or muddled and delicious. The flavor is always divine, sublime and fulfilling.

Bacardi’s new pre-mixed Classic Cocktail Raspberry Mojito takes entertaining to a new level of easy, breezy while keeping fuss to a minimum and guests happiness at a premium. With a few simple steps the authentic Mojito becomes a raspberry flavor blast of excitement. Just pour straight from the bottle, add a splash of club soda, a sprig of mint for garnish and aroma with a sprinkling of fresh raspberries and it’s a done deal; Bacardi Raspberry Mojito in seconds.

Large groups deserve your attention and larger than life cocktails. Tequila CAZADORES delivers the 5 Gallon Margarita for a burst of flavor big enough to satisfy the thirst of all your party goers. By mixing this one up in advance the flavors have the chance to meld together. Better yet, once the party begins you will have time to enjoy the company of friends without running back and forth to the cocktail shaker.

Bacardi’s new Dragon Berry Flavored Rum has been a huge hit since its release. The Strawberry Basil Lemonade cocktail is just one of the delicious new recipes Bacardi has come up with to bring in the fresh fruits and herbs of the season for delicious refreshment.
