BeShock beats the heat with their Bourbon Mojito. If anything can cure the summer-is-almost-over blues, a splash of bourbon, blueberries, lemons, limes and fresh mint all on the rocks may do the trick. If not, set your sights and taste buds on the Blue Hawaiian. Sip and sail to paradise with the tropical taste of rum, pineapple juice, curacao liqueur, and sweet and sour. This cocktail will have you feeling like it’s summer all year long.

La Piñata serves a fresh and fiery escape with The Pepiño Margarita—a powerful, cucumber flavored beverage with jalapeños to add some serious spice to your summer. And if variety is the spice of life, why not add more of it with another unique specialty drink, the Sangria Pop. A cool red or white sangria cocktail on ice infused with a berry Popsicle. Mmm summer just got that much cooler.
