These three summer cocktail recipes are delicious and a great addition to your next summer party! Learn how to mix a unique pina colada and a coffee mai tai with these simple recipes.

We recently celebrated the renovation of my sister and brother-in-law’s kitchen with a fun little “chic tiki” party. I’ll share more about it soon with some simple appetizer and decor ideas, but I thought that today I’d share with you a couple of tasty cocktails that we served at the party.

Signature cocktails are a great way to make any get-together feel special, and these recipes were made for us by Rylan of dashmixology here in Edmonton. My personal favourite was the coffee mai tai (I love anything coffee), but the pina colada was fresh and delicious too!
