Chillin’ Cocktails

Featured Sliders / Food & Drink / Stories / July 10, 2016

On a hot evening chill out with these cool finds that bring a bit of a beach vacation to Mid-Missouri.

J. Pfenny’s Sports Grill & Pub

All of the slushy flavors on the outdoor upper deck at J. Pfenny’s Sports Grill & Pub can be mixed and matched and are identified with bartender Matt Worley’s original artwork.

Worley uses the Missouri-made, hand-crafted white and dark rum from Rocheport Distilling Company, owned by band tour manager Johnny VerPlanck, who makes his home in Jefferson City.

The Bob Marley, an homage to the late reggae singer, songwriter and music legend, features Red Rum, Werewolf Killer and a floater of Midori, a muskmelon-flavored liqueur, to represent the red, green and gold colors of the Jamaican flag.

The Swirly Bird combines Red Rum, Werewolf Killer (lemonade, sour mix, water and Ever Clear) and Lilikoi Mango (with passion fruit), the most popular flavor on its own, for a fusion of flavors.


Buffalo Wild Wings

Cool off with a colorful and tasty menagerie of cocktails and lemonades that go perfect with tangy chicken wings.


The strawberry lemonade is traditional but tasty while the Blueberry Mint flavor is a welcome twist that’s sweet and tart. The Ginger Lemonade, made with Fever Tree Ginger Beer, zings.

The refreshing Black Cherry Mojito is everything you want in a summer drink, sweet and smooth but not overbearing with refreshing mint. It’s made with Cruzan Black Cherry, mojito mix and soda water.

Have your beer and tequila, too, with the brisk Strawberry Kicking Caronita, a balanced blend of Sauza Tequila Reposado Hornitos and a mini Carona.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with the Twisted Margarita, an adult dessert cocktail of frozen strawberry and mango puree combined with Sauza Gold Tequila and DeKuyper Triple Sec.


Canterbury Hill Winery & Restaurant

Their wine samplers and slushies at Canterbury Hill Winery & Restaurant are sure to please but their special drink concoctions are definitely worth checking out.


Their signature Sweet Serenity utilizes pineapple-infused Absolut vodka, pineapple juice, Monin peach syrup, pineapple juice and a dash of sprite with a sugar rim.

Made with Malibu Rum, pineapple juice and Blue Curacao, the Messy Moat is the perfect drink for a day at the beach or on the outdoor patio.
