Summer is here and that means fruity, tropical drinks are in. Even if you are hanging out by your local pool, these cocktails will make you feel like you are on an island in paradise. The juicy sweetness combined with sour, tart undertones are what make these tropical cocktails so delicious. Each cocktail is inspired by one of our polos to bring its own unique flavor that’ll transport you to relaxation and sunshine. While each recipe makes one serving, trust us, you will be wanting more than one.
Sunday Swagger Sunset
Inspired by our Gradient Collection
Tropical, sweet, and layered are just a few words to describe the Sunday Swagger Sunset. Just like the polos in our Gradient Collection, this cocktail looks like you pulled the sunset out of the sky and made it into the most delicious tropical beverage. Say goodbye to Mai Tai’s and the traditional Malibu Sunset because this will be a drink you’ll be making on repeat this summer.

The Perfect Shaken Pina Colada
Inspired by Escape Polo
A blended Piña Colada is the classic drink when you’re in the tropics, but have you ever had a shaken one?
