Drink Ideas: 3 New Recipes for Memorial Day Weekend

Offering the Summer Storm, Watermelon Woo-Woo, and 2 Gingers Madly Deeply

Our friends at QDrinks know we like great mixers when concocting a sparkly cocktail. So we asked them for some new ideas for Memorial Day weekend. Here are three easy to prepare recipes for all you revelers out there (and would be just as yummy sans-alcohol, if you want to give it a try).

Watermelon Woo Woo


  • 6 ounces Q Ginger Beer
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 2 ounces watermelon juice
  • 1/2 small lime, juiced
  • Lime wedge, for garnish

Place chunks of watermelon in a blender and blend well until watermelon is pureed. Strain over a fine mesh strainer into container. Save juice and discard pulp. Combine watermelon juice, gin and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with Q Ginger Beer and gently stir. Garnish with a lime wedge.

2 GINGERS® Madly Deeply


Combine contents over ice and stir. Garnish with an orange wheel.

Q Summer Storm


  • 5 ounces chilled Q Ginger Beer
  • 2 ounces Dark Rum
  • 1/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce chilled pineapple juice
  • 1 pineapple slice, for garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add rum and lime juice and shake well. Pour Q Ginger Beer into a highball glass filled with ice, then top with the shaken rum. Garnish with a pineapple slice.
