Summer is starting to peek out from behind the clouds and we couldn’t be happier! Along with the warmer weather, our DRY Botanical Bubbly Summer Celebration Bottles are emerging and like the sun, they are sure to put a summer-time smile on your face.
We aren’t sure what summer will look like this year. Will there be BBQ’s, will there be Baseball, will there be picnics? We just don’t know.
But what we do know is we can find small reasons to celebrate every day. Maybe that’s a quick walk around the neighborhood with the dog in the sunshine or a patio mocktail to end the day with a playlist on in the background, bare feet in the grass, or picking up something new at the store.
Our Summer Celebration bottles are hitting select store shelves soon and we have to admit, even their new packaging is enough to make us smile. If two flavors ever screamed, “Summer”, they're pineapple and watermelon.
Mix Up Some Fun In The Sun
For anyone who loves the taste of a tropical vacation our DRY Pineapple Botanical Bubbly is for you! We mixed up a tangy, spicy and sweet zero-proof cocktail inspired by those long walks on a warm beach and the first time you get to pull out the beach towel for the season. We promise it will pair just as well with that beach towel on the front lawn, as it does on a beach. Just don't forget the SPF!
DRY Pineapple Chili Lime-aid
3-4 large fresh pineapple chunks
1 oz of lime juice
1 oz Portland Syrup Mango Habanero Syrup or Dash of Chili Powder
Chilled DRY Pineapple Bubbly
Kosher salt, sugar, chili powder for rim

Glass: Lowball glass
Run a slice of lime around the edge of a glass and dip the glass into the salt, sugar, chili powder mixture to rim the glass.

Top with chilled DRY Pineapple Botanical Bubbly
Garnish: Lime wheel and dried chili
Some Like It Hot
Maybe summer is all about that first slice of truly perfect, fresh watermelon for you. The sticky fingers, messy face and bright green rinds piling up in the middle of a picnic table. It's cool, refreshing and the light scent lingers all day. But we've never been ones for doing the expected, so we added a sneaky kick to that classic summer flavor! This fresh and peppy twist on a margarita has zero-proof fun written all over it.
