Summer is easily the most awesome time of year.
Friends. Sunshine. Cold beer. Refreshing cocktails.
That last part is essential. Nothing makes summer more perfect than a cocktail bursting with flavour.
That’s why we’re warning you to STAY AWAY from our Lost Summer range of cocktails. One sip of these diabolically awful drinks will instantly ruin your entire summer.
Don’t believe us? Read on.
They’re not summery at all
The sun is baking hot. You’re sat in the garden, and you need something refreshing.
Someone hands you this Strawberry Spritz cocktail, made with Stoli vodka, our own Strawberry vodka flavour, lemon and apple juice, strawberry jam and lemonade.
We know what your thinking – thanks for totally ruining my summer vibes with this completely inappropriate cocktail. Since when was ice cold lemonade and strawberry refreshing?!
They’re made up of dismally boring ingredients.
Just look at this totally dull Dulce & Banana cocktail.
Stoli vodka. Banana liqueur. Frangelico hazelnut liqueur. Dulce de leche caramel sauce. Squirty cream. Sprinkles. Ice cream cone.
Pffft. Not a single unique ingredient in that. You might as well dilute vodka with Volvic mineral water.
They’re totally unoriginal
This is the Guava Colada.
Here we are, thinking that we’re cocktail experts, and we can’t even come up with an original spin on the Pina Colada.
Who do we think we are, mixing together Stoli vodka, Licor 43, lime and pineapple juices and guava purée and expecting you to be impressed?
After all, a guava is definitely one of the least exotic fruits ever. What next, a Granny Smith Appletini?
They’re not good for socialising
What do you get when you mix Stoli Blueberi vodka, apple juice, passion fruit and guava purées and Rekorderlig Strawberry & Lime cider?
A big pitcher of something you’d never want to share in the sun with all your friends.
That’s our Stoli Sundowner sharer cocktail for you.
They’ve got no class
Here’s our Blue Mule.
Stoli Blueberi vodka, Angostura bitters, apple and lime juices, lengthened with ginger beer and topped up with blueberries in a posh crystal glass.
We wouldn’t be seen dead in Wimbledon with that.
They won’t cool you down at all
On a particular hot summer day, you want something ice cold to really stop you from overheating.
This Fruit Burst Frappe definitely won’t help.
Stoli Blueberi vodka, ice, grenadine syrup, apple juice, blueberry and passion fruit purées, topped topped with a handful of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. How on earth is that supposed to cool you down?
To make it all worse, every one of these cocktails is made with Stoli premium vodka, famous around the world for its pure flavour.
We hope you take our advice. This new range of cocktails DEFINITELY won’t make your summer one to remember for the rest of your life.
