I raise a toast to you all. We did it! Another jam-packed school year has come to an end and opened the doors to days that are a little slower, a lot more relaxed and carry the 24/7 scent of sunscreen.
Quirk Hard Seltzer by Boulevard Brewing Co. has rolled out a new line of delicious seltzers, the Whip Mix Pack. These tasty hard seltzers are the perfect harmony of your favorite fruit flavors blended with notes of vanilla goodness. They taste exactly like how summer feels, and they are the perfect drink for poolside, lakeside, on your deck, driveway and beyond. You can find them in a convenient Whip Mix Pack serving up each flavor for you and your ladies to try.
Recently my friends and I gathered to do just that and we had fun creating delicious concoctions using our favorite drink of the summer, Boulevard Quirks! This has become a new fun way for us to christen the start of the season by creating new and fun ways to enjoy Boulevard’s awesome selections.
Whipped Sun Tea
- 3 c. (2 cans) of Peach Apricot Whip Quirk
- 3 c. of brewed iced tea
- Sweetener to taste
You may make this drink individually by adding a 50/50 ratio of iced tea to your Quirk Whip to a glass or grab a tea pitcher, and combine for larger batches to serve for guests.
This fun twist on a drink named after a famous golfer combines the summer tastes of freshly brewed iced tea with the sweetness and juiciness of peach and apricot. It carries a slight sweetness from the Quirk Whip, but like any tea beverage, we recommend sweetening to your liking. I loved it as is!
Pineapple Whip Spritz
- 3 oz. Pineapple Orange Whip
- 2 oz. Aperol
- Top with prosecco
Pour ingredients into a large wine glass or stemless glass. Add ice and garnish with an orange slice.
Maybe for a moment we can enjoy this Whip Spritz and imagine we’re sitting on the coastline of Italy with our best gal pals instead of on the side of the kiddie pool you’ve set up in the backyard. This spin on the chic and trendy Aperol Spritz was delicious and a light aperitif that was just as fun to look at as it was to drink.
Strawberry Whip Float
- 1 can of Strawberry Banana Whip
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Chopped strawberries
Add a couple of scoops of ice cream to a glass mug and add the Strawberry Banana Whip. Pour slowly to decrease the amount of float foam. Top with chopped strawberries and garnish with a strawberry.
My Grandpa was famous for his strawberry floats so making this grown-up version of his was fun and delicious and I know would have made him proud! The perfect sweet treat to follow up your cookout or to enjoy on a hot and steamy summer day, these Strawberry Banana Floats give the over-21 crowd a fun drink with the nostalgia of being a kid in the summer.
Raspberry Whip Seltzer
- 1 can of Raspberry Lime Whip
- 1.5 oz. vodka
- muddled raspberries
Muddle fresh raspberries into the bottom of a glass using a muddler or the end of a spoon. Add ice and then add one shot of vodka and top the rest with Raspberry Lime Whip.
Raspberries are one of the quintessential flavors of summer. This in-season fruit levels up any recipe they are added to and this Raspberry Vodka Seltzer is no different. The sweetness and tartness of fresh raspberries with the creaminess of the Raspberry Lime Whip are like the marrying of a spa drink with a treat.
Ladies, we deserve an evening of fun with friends and tasty drinks as we enjoy the sweet season of summer!
