Summer Drink Guide – Local + Lejos

Search

It's about that time of year. When week nights are filled with walks on the beach and weekends are spent laying out by the pool. Summer parties ensue and barbecues become a weekly ritual. And one thing on your mind in all of that is what drink you are going to be sipping on all summer long. That's why we teamed up with our friends at The Owl's Brew to craft some unique cocktails that you will want to reuse all summer long. Why? Because friends and family alike with be asking what the secret ingredients are for these refreshingly good drinks. While you're at it, don't forget to pick up some new barware from our Ankole Cowhorn Collection or some new trays that will leave guests asking about what's holding their drink as well.
