Winter blues got you down? Bring back the Summer! The Endless Summer, that is!

Do you long for a unique, refreshing, tropical cocktail that’s easy to make? The Endless Summer. Best served by the pool, the beach, or anytime you dream of the Caribbean, the Endless Summer will delight you.

I love this easy BVI drink and make it all the time. When the Bartender first told me the ingredients for the Endless Summer, I wasn’t convinced that this would be one of those ‘wow’ cocktails. But after the first sip, I was sold.

In the British Virgin Islands, I stayed at Scrub Island. I hired a guide to take me to the nearby islands because I wanted to showcase on my blog some of the best-tasting drinks in the BVIs.

At the Cooper Island Beach Club, my first stop, Saturn, a bartender, demonstrated how to make the Endless Summer.

Ingredients that you’ll need to make an Endless Summer

Endless Summer Ingredients
Tropical Cocktail Recipe Endless Summer Ingredients
  • Vodka
  • Monin Lavender Syrup
  • Lime Juice
  • Club Soda

Tips

To make this tropical cocktail recipe, Saturn starts with Tito’s Vodka. Besides Tito’s, I use Absolut, Ketel One, and Grey Goose.

He also uses fresh lime juice. I sometimes use bottled lime juice if I’m in a hurry or don’t have any fresh limes. Try this citrus juicer if you like to use freshly squeezed lime juice in your cocktails.

Cooper Island was out of lavender syrup, so Saturn replaced the lavender with blueberry syrup. The drink tastes fabulous either way.

You can’t mix a great cocktail or martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

Add the Vodka, Lavender syrup, and lime juice to a shaker half full of ice. Gently shake the tropical cocktail and pour the strained ingredients into a glass of crushed ice. Top the cocktail off with club soda.

I found the Lavender syrup here. The syrup gives the drink quite a unique flavor that I absolutely enjoy. Since my trip to the BVIs, I often mix up a glass of the Endless Summer tropical cocktail recipe. Please note that when you use lavender syrup instead of blueberry syrup, the drink will have a faint lilac color instead of the blueish-red hue from the blueberry syrup.
