Hotel Transylvania inspired Summer Vacation Cocktails. Thanks to Sony for hosting this event.
The updated animated tale of Dracula and his devoted family and funny friends is back in theaters with its third installation – Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. Drac, Mavis and the rest of their zany family and friends are back! The crew are taking a much needed break from the hotel to cruise some the seas – monster style!
I was invited to a special Hotel Transylvania Mom’s Mixology class taught by Snake Oil Cocktail. I love a refreshing cocktail during the summer, but I realized that I’ve never shaken up my own drinks. This class taught so many cool new skills, plus it was a nice way to bond with other moms!
Snake Oil Cocktail guided us on how to create the following Hotel Transylvania 3 cocktails, Blobby and Mavis Margarita. I partnered up with Happy Mess Moments who was the perfect partner to muddle, take photos, laugh and sip our tasty cocktails!
- 1.5 oz Vodka or Tequila (we used Tequila)
- 2 Oz Cucumber Juice
- 0.5 oz pressed lime
- 0.5 ox agave nectar
- 6-8 mint leaves
Muddle mint leaves in shaker add lime, agave, spirit and cucumber. Shake and strain over fresh ice garnish with a cucumber ribbon!
- 1.5 oz Tequila
- 0.75 oz Pressed Lime
- 6 Basil Leaves
- 2-3 Whole Strawberries
- 0.75 oz Simple Syrup
Muddle basil and strawberry in shaker add lime, simple syrup and spirit. Shake and strain over fresh ice. Garnish the rim with kosher salt, basil leave and half a strawberry! Cheers!
Plan a mom’s night in with your best friends and mix-up these delicious cocktails or create your own monstrous tasty drinks, just remember to not drink and drive or plan a ladies’ summer getaway – we all deserve it!
Hotel Transylvania is now in theaters!
