Summer Spa Bar Menu
1) The Blue Lagoon

The clues in the name. Cold, refreshing and bluer than the Caribbean sky, this tasty cocktail turns vodka, WKD, blue curaçao and lemonade into a drink you'd actually want to swim in!

Ingredients:

1 part Vodka
1 part Blue Curaçao
1 part Blue WKD
4 Parts Lemonade

Add ice and all the ingredients (minus lemonade) to your cocktail shaker and shake until it's well-chilled. Fill your hot tub friendly cup with ice and strain the alcohol. If you're feeling extra fancy, garnish the drink with a lemon slice and cherry. 

2) The Tidal Wave 

Just like its namesake this cocktail packs a punch. Strong but full of tastes, this colourful cocktail is enough to bowl you over backward (be warned!) 

Ingredients: 

1 Part Gin
1 Part Light rum
1 Part Vodka
1 Part Peach schnapps
4 Parts Orange juice
4 Parts Pineapple juice
 Dash of Grenadine syrup

Mix all ingredients and adjust for taste. Top up with ice and garnish with a skewered orange or pineapple wedge!

 3) The Cabin Cooler 

 A mouth-watering recipe that appeals to almost every crowd. Improve your tipple game tenfold and impress your hot tub guests with this creative cocktail invention. 

Ingredients: 

1 Part Raspberry vodka
1 Part Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
2 Parts Cranberry juice
1 Part Ginger ale
 
(This one requires a little prep.) Mix the vodka, rum and cranberry juice the day before your gathering. This acts as the drink base. Combine 4 parts of your base with 1 part ginger ale and pour over crushed ice. Stir and add a slice of lime for garnish. 
 
4) The Boozy Mermaid Cocktail 
This tropical drink is a show-stealer at any party! Colourful, sweet and full of fun, what's not to like about this easy-to-make drink.
 
Ingredients:
 
2 Parts Malibu (or Coconut Rum)
Splash of Blue Curaçao
4 Parts Lemonade 
 
Put ice in the bottom of your glass then add a splash of Blue Curaçao, the rum and then more ice. This creates an ombré effect. Pour in the lemonade. To finish, skewer a lemon slice and two cherries on a toothpick or (even better) a paper umbrella and add as a garnish. 
5) Maritime Martini
This classic beverage is a perfect way to wrap up any summers evening and this nautical-themed cocktail list. 
 
Ingredients: 
 
1 part dry gin
1 part vodka
10 ml vermouth
5 ml blue curacao
 
Pour all the ingredients into your shaker with ice. Shake it and stir well. Strain the drink into your glass and garnish with berries. 
 
 
Top Tips: 
  • Always use plastic cups when drinking in or around your inflatable spa. We get it, they're not as aesthetically pleasing but safety first!
  • Hot water accelerates dehydration. Make sure to supply your guest with water in-between cocktails.
  • Fresh Fruit and finger foods always go down a treat with these kind of cocktails! (Let's make this a party to remember!) 
We hope you enjoy making and tasting our collection of cocktails. Please remember to always drink responsibly. Let us know which is your favourite!
