For modern artists, summer and heat were represented by a young woman dressed in yellow, with a crown of thorns and a flaming torch. This feeling of warmth, lightness and sensuality makes people change their behavior around a new lifestyle. In summer times people tend to break the routine and enjoy the atmosphere that is built around the beach and the breeze.

Cocktail industry also acquires a twist in this season, the ingredients become more acidic and light. Now we are going to explore certain products and cocktails, perfect to cool ourselves off in summer time:


- Lemon: it was seen as a symbol of purity and fidelity. Ancient cultures gave him protective properties and it was used as a shield for magic spells and poison. For Jews it is the representation of the human heart. As an edible fruit, it is known for its sour taste and special aroma. It is an ingredient for desserts, drinks and seafood. (See cocktails with lemon)
