Fishers Island Lemonade is the Perfect Summer Canned Cocktail

Fishers Island Lemonade: The Perfect Summer Canned Cocktail

In case you haven’t stepped foot outside your door and are lapping in the luxury of air conditioning, it is hot outside. It is officially summer and Mother Nature is making that known with high temperatures and unseemly levels of humidity. If you plan on venturing out to your front porch or backyard, do not go empty-handed. We highly suggest you adults grab a 4-pack of Fishers Island Lemonade, the original cocktail-in-a-can.

Fishers Island Lemonade is the Perfect Summer Canned Cocktail

This female-founded, canned cocktail is exactly what you need to cool yourself down on hot and humid summer days. They say our homes are our castles, that may be true, but today we find our island. Fishers Island Lemonade uses fresh, premium ingredients and packs a punch at 9% ABV.  Founded by Bronya Shillo in 2014, this ready-to-drink canned cocktail is perfect for your indoor and outdoor adventures. Whether you’re enjoying stay-at-home BBQs, golf outings, or the beach; and the best part? The can floats so you never have to worry about losing a drop.

Fishers Island Lemonade is the Perfect Summer Canned Cocktail

As previously stated, Fishers Island Lemonade is made with all-natural ingredients. This includes the signature lemon and honey, with a kick of premium distilled Vodka and barrel-aged Whiskey. There’s no malt, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial flavors or colors. It is a true spirits-based canned cocktail, unlike seltzers, wine coolers, and other malt products, and tastes as fresh as if a bartender just made it in front of you. While it is 100% delicious straight out of the can, it also makes an amazing base for refreshing summer cocktails. Check out a few favorites you have to try this summer:

Bandero Tequila

Bandero Tequila: Drink to the Spirit of the Revolution

As we fight against the continuous and unjust killing of black lives, we find ourselves searching for moments of joy.  Happy memories from our past to fight the internal rage. This rage has forced us to take social media and news breaks, but we still cheer on the revolution. In keeping with the spirit of this current revolution, we’re highlighting a tequila that is “el espíritu de la revolución,” or, “Spirit of the Revolution.” We also had an experience with it that brought us so much joy. Just a little over a year ago, we were invited to partake in a mixology class with Bandero Tequila and Ricardo Calderon. It was an incredibly fun experience, one we will hold onto forever. We loved it for many reasons; the camaraderie; the relaxing environment; and as we learned that day, just how delicious Bandero Tequila is.

Bandero Tequila

It was the first time we saw it in person and we were immediately enamored with the bottle. In case you’re unfamiliar, the award-winning Bandero Blanco is radical in flavor and style. It features bold flavors and an authentic leather-bound canteen bottle. Twice distilled, Bandero uses the finest Blue Weber Agave cultivated from the hills of the Los Altos Highlands in Jalisco, Mexico; known worldwide as the only location for authentic Tequilas. The agave plants at this higher elevation experience cooler nights, less rain and colder winters, transforming Bandero into a sweeter, richer “pineapple.” The hardened red clay soil of Los Altos forces the Bandero agave roots to work harder to find this region’s special crystalline waters while gathering copious amounts of minerals. The result is a richer agave, high in natural sugar with notes of pear and peach.

Since we’re all far from attending a mixology class, we present two cocktails brought to life with this premium tequila. While Bandero Tequila is ideal for sipping, these two great cocktail recipes are a delicious way you can enjoy Bandero’s radical flavor.

The Bandero “Quarantina” Margarita

The Bandero "Quarantina" Margarita
2 oz of Bandero Tequila
3/4 oz of Orange Juice (Fresh Squeezed if you have).
1 oz Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Another Orange Liqueur (if available).
Splash of Club Soda
Garnish with 1/2 Orange Wheel
Mix in a Large Glass or add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake. Strain into a rocks glass over ice and add a splash of Club Soda. Garnish with an Orange Wedge.

Bubbles Before Midnight

Bandero Tequuila Bubbles Before Midnight Cocktail
1.5oz Bandero Blanco tequila
0.5oz grenadine syrup
0.5oz lime juice
Brut champagne top
Combine all ingredients EXCEPT champagne in a shaker tin with ice and short-shake. Strain into a champagne flute, top with champagne. Zest & rim glass with lemon peel, place on a rim of the glass.

Whether you’re out protesting across this broken nation or sharing news and knowledge from home, we raise a glass to you in this, our revolution. Here’s to our black voices being heard; here’s to our black lives and our bodies, mattering! ¡Viva la Revolución!

Bogart's Spirits: Drink in the Essence of Old Hollywood

Bogart’s Spirits: Drink in the Golden Age of Hollywood

Before we were fighting for our civil rights, our COVID-19 experience had been basking in the glory of all things old Hollywood. With the popularity of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time and the amazing success of Ryan Murphy’s reimagined Hollywood series on Netflix, we were more than ready to drink in the love of Bogie and Bacall. Then we ended up fighting for our lives and rights and things were put off to the side for a minute. But! One cannot live my anger alone, so back to love we go. Specifically to Stephen Bogart, the son of Bogie and Bacall, and his range of Bogart’s Spirits.

During the “Golden Age of Hollywood”, Humphrey Bogart was the toast of the town, so we quite eager to get to know the offerings from Bogart’s Spirits. Thanks to the partnership between the Humphrey Bogart Estate and Patron Tequila co-founder, John Paul DeJoria’s, ROKiT Drinks, the award-winning Bogart’s Gin, Bogart’s Whiskey, Bogart’s Rum, and Bogart’s Vodka is here to bring some of old Hollywood to today.

Bogart's Spirits: Drink in the Essence of Old Hollywood

Each Bogart’s Spirits bottle, available in 750ml, features Humphrey Bogart’s name, key facts from his biography, and a famous Bogie quote about drinking.

The Bogart’s Gin ($26.99) is made with juniper berries from Italy that are selected for their fragrant aromas; fresh hand-zested citrus; vine-ripened cucumber; lightly hand-roasted and crushed macadamia nuts; lavender, and coriander leaves. Incredibly smooth juniper spruce tips and coriander taste that finishes in a round, full back note of macadamia and peppery lime. The gin bottle features this Humphrey Bogart quote: “NEVER TRUST A MAN WHO DOESN’T DRINK”.

Bogart’s Whiskey ($34.99) is a blended whiskey made with single malt and grain whiskeys. After maturing for at least three years, it is then rested and finished using white American oak bourbon casks. Spice and fruit notes mingle on the nose along with strong flavors of honey. You may notice the simple syrup and graham crackers that show in this lively spirit. The whiskey bottle boasts features this Humphrey Bogart quote: “I DEFEND MY AMERICAN RIGHT TO TAKE A DRINK WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT”.

Rum lovers will love Bogart’s Rum ($24.99) for its artisan-distilled and blended unaged rum. Made from U.S. Virgin Island rum (a sugar cane base) and “Fancy” grade Black Strap Molasses from the Gulf Coast; this crystal-clear white rum boasts a remarkably smooth, clean finish, with aromas of light caramel and citrus zest. It’s soft, well-rounded flavors include almond and coconut, which makes this exceptionally well-crafted rum the star of any occasion. What is the Humphrey Bogart quote on the rum bottle? : “ALL YOU OWE THE PUBLIC IS A GOOD PERFORMANCE”.

Last but not least, Bogart’s Vodka ($24.99) uses the highest-quality American grains. It is column-distilled seven times in small batches and matches the quality of the legendary man it represents. The result is an unbelievably smooth and clean vodka with a silky-dry yet light, fruity body, and peppery spice-accented finish. It is a truly tasty and balanced vodka. The Humphrey Bogart quote on the vodka bottle is probably what every American is feeling right now: “THE WHOLE WORLD IS THREE DRINKS BEHIND”.
