Cool Off with These Great Summer Cocktails in Sedona Verde Valley
Beat the heat one sip at a time with these refreshing drinks crafted just for you by local bartenders.
At Grapes, be sure to grab a glass of Sparkling Sangria. One of their most popular summer drinks, this refreshing beverage is made with Italian sparkling wine—prosecco—giving it a unique flavor to the traditional Spanish Sangria. Another popular and classic summer cocktail at Grapes is the Ultimate Margarita, made with premium liquors and house-made sweet and sour.
Feel as cool as a cucumber with 89Agave’s Cucumber Mint Cocktail, made from blanco, agave nectar, cucumber, and mint. There’s also the Southwest Lemonade Cocktail. A twist on the classic summer beverage—lemonade—89Agave bartenders add house recipe sweet tea and vodka to the mix.
At Verde Brewing Company, you’ll find a selection of craft beers on tap that are perfect for the summer. Check out Kölsch, which is light to medium in body with a very pale color and a light hop bitterness, giving this summer quencher a crisp aftertaste. Another good option is Gold Buckle. Local honey and alfalfa add a sweet and subtle lemony aroma to this easy-to-drink blonde.
Su Casa Mexican Restaurant and Cantina‘s featured summer drink is the Jarritos–a mix of silver tequila, grapefruit soda, and lime juice garnished with a salt rim and a slice of lime and orange. In case you need another reason to indulge in this tasty drink, Su Casa donates a portion of the profit from each Jarritos sold to support the Verde River.
For a refreshing caipirinha, head over to Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill. Made of cachaça, simple syrup, lime juice, and garnished with a lime wedge, the caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail and is a classic summer drink that goes down easy on a hot day.
