3 Signature Summer Cocktails with a Zesty Edge

The best way to refresh during these sultry summer nights is by sipping on coolers and cocktails. While in Greece, I was introduced to 3 crowd-pleasing cocktails at the San Giorgio Hotel: the Mulatto with white rum, cacao liquer and fresh lime juice. The Holy Rose, with white and dark rum, triple sex and fresh lime juice, and the Rosemary Mojito with rum, rosemary syrup and fresh lime juice. Served in small vintage milk bottles or a mason jar, the signature cocktails make an extra strong statement and will have your guests talk long after your barbecue party. The herbal infused mixtures are fresh, zesty and sweet. Embellish them with fragrant flowers, a lime peel, or a simple twig of herbs.  I tried to copy the cocktails by using recipes I found online. Close enough for me! (Scroll down for the recipes)
