Hot Smokin' Longdrinks

Cool - and Very Refreshing

If you don't know what drink to serve with barbecue, on this page you'll find a collection of my favourite cool longdrinks, and those of my friends with whom I have successfully "celebrated" a barbeque or two... As you will see, we prefer to mix our long drinks with Latin liquors like tequila and Cuban rum.

Long drinks have a lower alcohol percentage than cocktails and therefore are more suitable for a barbecue party, especially in hot weather.

(This lower alcohol percentage in longdrinks does not count for my friend Eddy. Just check out the notorious recipe for what we call "the Edgar")

A proper long drink will taste só good that you will drink it too fast without noticing. For the barman your slurping noises will be the ultimate sign that he did his job properly!

For you, as the consumer, it is important not to give in too much to those primitive innate impulsions, otherwise you won't make it until the end of the party...

Juancho's BBQ Tip

For maximum taste:

Serve your cocktails and longdrinks as COLD as possible!

Make sure that all your cocktail and longdrink ingredients, tools and glasses are as cold as possible before you start mixing.

Softdrinks, juices, lemons, glasses, shakers, stirrers, etc. go in the refrigerator.
Liquor can even be kept in the freezer!

Some things about alcohol to seriously consider:

Hot Smoke BBQ does not condone, approve or promote any excessive use of alcohol.

Enjoy your drink, but keep the party a party for everyone.
And never ever forget that Barbecues, Smokers and Grills are hot and potentially very dangerous!


- Keep children away from alcohol!

- Don't Drink and Drive!
