Looking to level up your beverage game?

If you’re looking for something a bit more elevated – perhaps for a special occasion or just to treat yourself when you have a bit of extra time on your hands – here are a few more fun, fruity recommendations (requiring just a bit of extra prep or special ingredients) to keep you cool and wow your guests this summer.

  • Honey Mango Lassi: Creamy, fruity, and sweet, the lassi is a yogurt-based drink from India meant to cool you off on a hot day. This one includes mango and your choice of Runamok Honey.
  • Summer Garden Mule: This is a very refreshing, low alcohol drink using our Runamok Ginger Mule mix. The mint and cucumber reign in the sweetness and the ginger and lime give it some zing. You can add or subtract the amount of vodka to your liking.
  • Strawberry Frosé: This cocktail is fruity, refreshing and downright cheerful. Make a large batch of the strawberry puree mixture and then top with chilled, sparkling rosé  (or regular Champagne) as needed for each drink.
  • Blackberry Honey Lemonade: This is a summer refresher that takes advantage of fresh berries. If you don’t have access to blackberries, strawberries, raspberries or blueberries would be a good substitute.
