Cocktail Recipes to Commemorate going Back-to-School

Hattiesburg, MS

Even though it’s still hot out, August means it’s back-to-school time again. Whether you’re ushering your last kid off to college or plan on sipping cocktails after the kids are in bed, relishing the idea that summer break is almost officially over, check out these cocktail recipes to commence the start of a new school year.

The Pencil Eraser

Don’t let the name fool you because it’s not just another item on your kid’s back-to-school list. Instead, it’s a martini that will help you forget about the day. Bad report from the teacher? An unexpected fee added to the tuition bill? Erase your worries with the pencil eraser cocktail.

Fill a tumbler with ice, and then add in 4 ounces of simple syrup, 6 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce of cranberry juice, and 8 lemon wedges. Shake well, and then pour into a martini glass, and garnish the glass with a strawberry.

Scientist Slushie

School means science fairs and projects. Make the task much easier to handle with the scientist slushie. Add this list of ingredients to a blender: 1 and a half cups of frozen blueberries and blackberries, 12 strawberries, 1 and a half cups of lemon-lime soda, ½ cup of gin, and one tablespoon of sugar. While all the mixing and blending will have you thinking about science experiments, you will feel like summer is back again!

The Summer Ain’t Over, Raspberry Arnold Palmer

Even though it’s back-to-school time, summer isn’t over! The temperatures will continue to soar here in Mississippi, so stay cool with this drink. Mix 4 cups of iced tea, 8 cups of lemonade, 2 cups of raspberries, and 4 shots of vodka. You can use either regular vodka or raspberry flavored. Mix well, serve over ice, and garnish the glass with a fresh sprig of mint.

It’s Time for an ‘All-Nighter’

Whether you’re up all night studying for exams, or you’re the lucky parent that gets to stay up half the night working on your kid’s project that’s due tomorrow, you’re going to need something to get you through the night or at least most of it. Mix 1.5 ounces of bourbon, 0.75 ounces of lemon juice, and 0.75 ounces of hazelnut and caramel syrup, along with two bar spoons of coffee liqueur. This coffee-flavored cocktail will help keep the wheels turning past midnight.

These cocktails are a refreshing way to celebrate the back-to-school season whether you’re a parent excited that you will get a break from your kids, or you’re a college student of legal drinking age that’s headed across state for your final year of college.
