Summer Drinks: 3 Ingredient Cocktails For You To Chill

The summer is the ideal time to kick back, unwind, and enjoy the sunshine. However, with all of the sunshine and leisure, this warm season is also the perfect time to enjoy sipping on a cool cocktail. Cocktails made in the summer tend to have a lot of fruity and light flavors, transporting you to picturesque island locales or poolside. But what to do if you can’t make it to a fancy poolside bar or a cabana on the beaches? Worry not, here’s a way out to be a bartender at home.  

Fortunately, there are lots of quick-to-assemble summer cocktails that just need a few basic components. It seems like a dream, doesn't it? These three-ingredient summer cocktail recipes are really simple and tasty, you just want to have them on hand for a mid-week pick-me-up. 


The blended daiquiri, with its frothy texture and sweet flavor, is undoubtedly a drink of its own era. However, the original daiquiri, which offers a lime-focused cocktail in a more straightforward form, isn't exactly the same. After an American engineer named Jennings Stockton Cox invented the drink in the Cuban hamlet of Daiquiri in 1898, the daiquiri began to appear on bar menus. The perfect drink at the time was created with just rum, lime, and sugar; the formula has persisted ever since. Light and energizing, this simple 3-ingredient cocktail recipe is ideal for summertime patio dining. Combine two ounces of white rum, one ounce of lime juice, and half an ounce of simple syrup in a cocktail. Simple syrup is available in stores or can be created at home with ease by combining one part boiling water and one part sugar and stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. All of the ingredients should be combined with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well, strain, and serve your daiquiri in a chilled glass with a wedge of lime. 

Tequila Sunrise 

The Tequila Sunrise is the perfect beverage if you want to catch the spirit of summer. It is one of the most beautiful cocktails because of its stunning color, which is one of the easiest to make. The colours change from yellow to orange to resemble a sunrise. Grab a glass, add a few ice cubes, and then add two ounces of tequila and six ounces of orange juice to prepare this simple three-ingredient cocktail. Pour 3/4 ounce of grenadine over the mixture in the centre of the glass to achieve the dawn appearance. The grenadine will rise a little bit, forming the ombre sunset pattern that gave the beverage its name. Just top it off with a cherry. 

Watermelon Margarita 

Let's admit it, drinking margaritas are pretty much ideal throughout the year, regardless of the flavor, which can range from the traditional lime with a salted rim to strawberry, pineapple, and everything in between. But in the summer, watermelon reigns supreme, so it only makes it logical to use it in a margarita. By blending the juice from a fresh watermelon with lime juice and tequila, one of the easiest methods to make a margarita is to enhance it with the summer flavour of watermelon. Four ounces of watermelon juice, two teaspoons of lime juice, and two ounces of silver tequila should be combined in a shaker. Grab a glass and pour the three-ingredient drink over ice after shaking with ice. 

Piña Colada 

Can you imagine a drink more associated with palm trees and white beaches than a piña colada? It is unlikely given the exquisite fusion of tropical flavours.The ingredients can be shaken or blended to create a pina colada. One ounce of cream of coconut, two ounces of pineapple juice, and two ounces of white rum should be added to a shaker or blender. Pour into a glass after shaking or blending ice and the beverage. For added flair, feel free to garnish with a tiny umbrella or a pineapple wedge. 


One of the most straightforward 3-ingredient cocktails on the menu, the Gimlet undoubtedly has a colourful past. All you need to make a Gimlet is fine gin, fresh limes, and simple syrup. Two ounces of gin, half an ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice, and half an ounce of simple syrup should be added to an ice-filled shaker. Shake, strain, and garnish your cocktail with a wedge of lime.
