With the summer heat bearing down on us, many people turn to drinks for a cool indoor date during the summertime. We’ve compiled a list of our 10 drinks to order on a date this season so you and your date can get to know each other and enjoy some refreshing cocktails. Please remember to drink responsibly (it is a date after all!) and don’t be afraid to make it a virgin cocktail.
1 – Moscow Mule
The Moscow Mule is a very trendy drink this year and is usually served in a copper mug. A great refreshing option that most bars will have on the menu.
2 – Margarita
Obviously, a classic, the margarita is a great summer drink – for a pro-tip, get your margarita unblended as it classes up your drink.
3 – Aperol Spritz
If you like a slightly bitter drink this is the way to go and you can’t beat a spritz for drinking in the heat.
4 – Mimosa
A mimosa is the go-to if you are out for a breakfast or brunch date (obviously), but don’t be afraid to order it any time of the day. It’s a great way to drink light and stay refreshed.
5 – Mojito
If you like mint, a classic Mojito is a great option. Check if the bar uses fresh ingredients, which makes this drink is really something special.
6 – Arnold Palmer
If you are not an alcohol drinker or if you prefer to hold off from drinking on a date, this is a great option and it is an easy drink to order at almost every bar or restaurant.
7 – Paloma
If you like tequila you’ll love the Paloma. Tart, tangy, and sure to please this citrusy drink is a great option and a personal favorite.
8 – Mai Tai
If you like your drinks a little sweeter, this fun classic will always be a crowd-pleaser, and if you ask nicely the bartender might slip you some extra fruit garnish!
9 – Champagne
If you are not a fan of mixed drinks but still want to keep it light, go with a glass of simple champagne. If the date is going really well you can even share a glass.
10 – Water
When drinking in the heat it is important to stay hydrated out there! Try to drink a small glass of water along with any alcohol.
