During the sweltering months of June and July, all Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar and Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar locations will be celebrating all things gin by serving the Strawberry Fields of Summer $15, the Ambrosia Fizz $15.50 and the Permanent Vacation $15.50. These three enlivening gin cocktails are the perfect way to beat the summer heat while enjoying a light refreshing drink. The ‘Summer of Gin’ kicks off just in time for National Gin Day on June 10 and Father’s Day weekend celebrations on June 18.

Rob Aspaas, Director of Cocktail, Tommy Bahama weighed in.

“We’ve found that summer is an amazing season to put gin at the forefront; we really lean into flavors of the season like strawberry, rhubarb, watermelon, and herbs like mint and basil,” Aspaas said. “For example, a new edition to our Summer of Gin lineup this year is the Permanent Vacation. We really enjoyed putting this cocktail together because it ties an incredibly smooth gin with the seasonality of watermelon and mint, with a hint of bitterness coming from Aperol. It’s just one example of playing to the spirit and the season!”

Strawberry Fields of Summer – with strawberries and basil abundant, gather both and muddle together. Add Tommy Bahama Island Gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water for a summertime sensation!

Ambrosia Fizz – made with Hendricks Orbium, St Germain, lemon juice and simple syrup, topped with Prosecco and a splash of Aprerol into the center of the glass – this cocktail will transport you to your favorite island, no matter where you are.

Permanent Vacation – crafted with smooth Botanist gin, fresh watermelon purée, tangy lime juice and mint syrup, then finish it off with a dash of Aperol. This cocktail will give you the summertime feeling you’ve been craving!
