bbq-pigWe’re pretty sure that we all love barbecues because of the mouth-watering food. But do you know what makes these backyard parties even more delightful? The people we spend the moment with! Imagine this: a lazy afternoon; great music playing in the background; crave-worthy, hot-off-the-grill food and the company of your loved ones and friends. What more can you ask for? Actually, there is one! Let’s not forget about the drinks. Here are some refreshing beverages that will go well with your barbecue!


1. Bourbon and Sweet Tea Cocktail


Steep 5 bags of black tea in boiled water for approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the bags and transfer the tea in a large pitcher. Put in the fridge until cold. In a medium bowl, put some orange slices, agave, bourbon and fresh mint. Press the ingredients together then pour into the ice tea pitcher. Stir well and serve with ice.


2. Batida Cocktail


Put ice in your glasses. Get a shaker and combine vodka, pineapple juice and bar sugar. Shake well until the sugar dissolves. Pour the mixture into the glasses and garnish with pineapple wedge.


3. Arnold Palmer


Put ice cubes in a tall glass and fill it halfway with your favorite lemonade. Top with iced tea and sweeten as you please. Voila! You’ve made a refreshing drink without breaking a sweat!


4. Mojito


Get a sturdy glass and put some mint leaves and a lime wedge in it. Crush the mint and lime to make sure that the oil and lime juice will be release. Add 2 more wedges and some sugar. Crush the lime again. Now put more ice cubes in the glass and make sure that you’ll fill it up. Pour some rum and carbonated water. Stir and sweeten it if you want.


5. Cucumber Jalapenos Margarita


Combine tequila, 2 jalapeno slices and 8 cucumber quarters in a shaker. Muddle the ingredients until the jalapeno and the cucumber break up into smaller pieces. Add some agave syrup and lime juice into the mixture. Don’t forget the ice. Vigorously shake the ingredients for about a minute. Strain and transfer to a glass that’s rimmed with salt.
