After spending all day touring, beaching and shopping, guests staying at luxury rentals may have a craving for an ice-cold beverage. The summer is heating up, and no matter where you're vacationing, almost every destination has a refreshing drink that locals have been drinking for decades. Here are a few traditional cocktails that will spice up your villa holiday.
The Margarita: Those enjoying their time relaxing at villas in Mexico might not be able to resist the urge to have a sip of this sweet and refreshing cocktail. With a few simple ingredients (tequila, triple sec, lime, salt and ice), Margaritas are a perfect night cap.
The Bellini: Created in Venice in 1934 by the mixologists at Harry's Bar, the Bellini is a perfectly refreshing cocktail made with just a scoop of fresh peach puree and bubbly champagne. Popular among the classiest locals, the Bellini is the Italian's answer to the French Mimosa, and is best enjoyed in the morning with crepes.
The Painkiller: Ideal for the morning after a long night enjoying the streets of the British Virgin Islands, this rum cocktail is made with pineapple and orange juice along with a splash of coconut milk and a dash of freshly grated nutmeg.
