Summertime is upon us and we couldn’t be any more excited. From days spent lounging by our resort-style rooftop pool to soaking up the sun on our sun deck, there’s not much we love more than the Summer season. What makes unwinding even better? Having a delicious, Summer-inspired cocktail in hand. Here are just a few recipes we think will be the perfect addition to your Summer here at The Dalton.

Tequila-Watermelon Aguas Frescas with Prosecco

This delicious cocktail is practically the perfect addition to any Summer shindig you happen to throw here at The Dalton. It’s easy to make just enough for you and yourself, and simple enough to prepare a whole bunch for a plethora of people. It features Watermelon (the Summeriest of fruits) plus Prosecco… need we say more? Whatever kind of plans you have for your Summer relaxation, make sure this mix is a part of it.

Ginger-Peach Soda

Another Summer-worthy sip to prep in your kitchen at The Dalton is this Ginger-Peach Soda. It’s both refreshing and, thanks to the possibility of a splash of rum, indulgent. This recipe is ideal for parties full of both adults & little ones, because it’s easy to make non-alcoholic and oh so delicious no matter how you enjoy it. Grab some ripe peaches and some pretty glasses for this one.


  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 very ripe peaches
  • 2 liter Seltzer
  • 16 fresh mint leaves

Pineapple Mint Agua Fresca

Last but not least, a non-alcoholic beverage for those looking to sip on something a little lighter. Not only is this concoction a crowd pleaser for any age, but it’s extremely simple to make. With just 3 ingredients required, you can whip this one up in no time, and on the fly for a last minute get-together. Plus, serving it directly in a pineapple is just an easy way to make it both tasty and fun.
