Our Sunset Nail Wraps are proving very popular this summer. Their vibrant colours and ombre design bring happiness to the nails of those who wear them! We also love how they match the colours of many popular summer cocktails. So, this article celebrates our the arrival of summer and explores how to make a Sex on the Beach and a Tequila Sunrise cocktail, to match our Sunset Nail Wraps.
How to make a Sex on the Beach
35 ml Vodka
15 ml Peach Schnapps
40 ml Orange Juice
20 ml Cranberry Juice
(9 ml Chambord or Crème de Cassis) – optional
These measures can vary, depending on taste. Many use the same amount of vodka and peach schnapps, but it is usually expected that there is around half the amount of peach schnapps as vodka.
Again, there are different methods to make the cocktail, with optional ingredients such as the Chambord or pineapple that can also be added.
In order to get the colouring that we desire, place all the ingredients in a shaker, apart from the orange juice, and fill it with ice. Shake it thoroughly and then pour this mixture into a highball glass filled with ice and orange juice. The red-coloured mix will seep through the orange juice and make a great look that will match your nails!
How to make a Tequila Sunrise
60 ml Tequila
175 ml Orange Juice
1 dash of Grenadine
Get a highball glass with lots of ice and fill up about 2/3 of the glass with orange juice. Add the tequila to this mix and then pour the grenadine around the edges of the glass in a circular motion and watch it drip down and mix with the other ingredients. Garnish with a slice of orange or cherry to finish.
How to make a Hurricane cocktail
Popularised by the Hard Rock Café, as their signature cocktail is the Hurricane, allowing their customers to go home with a souvenir glass, after finishing their cocktail.
50 ml Light Rum
50 ml Dark Rum
50 ml Passion Fruit Juice
25 ml Orange Juice
1 dash of Grenadine
Orange slice and a cherry to garnish
The preparation for this one is rather easy! Simply pour all your ingredients into a shaker with ice, shake well and pour over a strainer into a hurricane glass, over ice! Then garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry to finish.
Ideally, you would want to make the passion fruit juice from scratch, but not everyone has the time to do this, so ready-made juice will also work!
So, if you are rocking the Sunset Nails this summer, you have plenty of choices to team up your nails with a drink that matches!
