Refreshing Summer Cocktail Recipes from The Cooper

Enjoy these two cocktail recipes over the holiday weekend.


Cocktails are definitely in order as we head into the July Fourth weekend. For those who are hosting a holiday cookout at home, The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens shares two drink recipes that appeal to all: a classic mojito and The Dancing Scotsman, which (surprise, surprise) employs scotch. The latter is also $6 during The Cooper’s killer daily happy hour from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
