Presenting the Lounge Cockail Collection ...
Lounge Cocktails take you back to that beach bar in Cuba, where mint and sugar cane were muddled, mixed with rum and lime juice and served fresh...
to that cafe on Cristo Street in Old San Juan where you watched the tourists (as if you were not one!) while sipping on a Pina Colada...
or drinking in the latest dance mix at a club, Cosmo in hand.
Those armed with a degree in Advanced Mixology can create these cocktails with ease.
For the rest of us, we can purchase these cocktail classics at the LCBO, pre-mixed and ready to drink, although they are a touch pricey (up to $16 per 750mL bottle). Now, we have another choice...
Lounge delivers the same great tastes for less, just $98 for about 15 750mL bottles (This price includes everything except the container; bring your own or purchase refillable bottles.) Lounge cocktails are about 12% alcohol/volume, just like the "commercial" pre-mixed products mentioned above.
The main difference, other than cost, is that Lounge takes 28 days to be made which means you need to start some now to enjoy over the summer.
Here's what to do: Get together with a cocktail-loving friend or two and choose the Lounge Cocktails you want from the list below. Then head to Bloor West Winery to get them started... so you can be enjoying them sooner!
Your faithful correspondent,
Lounge Mojito -- Dream of a Cuban escape while sipping this classic cocktail! Pour your Lounge Mojito into a highball glass and enjoy. Or, for an artful twist, muddle first with raspberries or mangoes and then pour.
Lounge Pina Colada -- The "queen" of tropical drinks that blends the flavour of rum with coconut and pineapple into an unbeatable summer refresher, poolside or dockside. Serve over ice or blend with ice, pour into a tall glass and garnish with a spear of fresh pineapple and maraschino cherry.
Lounge Cosmopolitan -- The taste is urban chic, one that blends vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and fresh lime. Shake and serve in a martini glass.
Lounge Long Island Iced Tea -- This classic cocktail is the quintessential taste of summer. Our Long Island Iced Tea has notes of lemon, lime, tea and a hint of rum. Serve over ice with a wedge of lemon or lime.
Lounge Lemon Lime Margarita -- Served shaken, on-the-rcoks, or blended, this cocktail is a sure hit. In ours, the soft taste of lemon is balanced by the tartness of lime while hints of Triple Sec are present.
