I don’t know about you, but summer always flies by for me. I have so many fun activities I want to do, people I want to see, and places I want to go then BAM the days are getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors and I’m left wishing I’d packed more into the past couple of months. Before summer officially ends, make sure to squeeze in some summer cocktails on a patio!
Whispers (located on the lobby level of The Coeur d’Alene Resort) is serving up delicious drinks that are best enjoyed on their lakefront patio- grab your friends & family and let’s sip away summer! Check out my 5 must-try cocktails from Whispers below- they’re everything you could want in a summer drink.
Spice things up with this twist on a classic margarita. Silver Tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, muddled pineapple & jalapeno rings served on the rocks with cayenne pepper salted rim make this marg anything but ordinary!
I love a good mojito. Usually, I say “don’t mess with a classic” when presented with different flavors, garnishes, and variations; but in this case- I wish every mojito was a watermelon one! See for yourself while sipping Barcardi Rum, fresh muddled mint and watermelon, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup served on the rocks with a splash of soda and garnished with fresh mint. I bet you’ll never look at a mojito the same again.
If you’ve ever gone huckleberry picking, searched high and low for those precious little berries, or simply love enjoying them on just about everything you eat, you’re going to adore this drink. Makers Mark, simple syrup, and a hint of huckleberry preserves served over ice makes this a refreshing summer cocktail unique to Northern Idaho.
Another drink for all the huckleberry fans out there- this one is a double whammy with Huckleberry Vodka, St. Germain, lemon juice, and huckleberry puree!

Summer won’t stick around forever, so squeeze a happy hour or 2 into your schedule this August! These drinks are sure to cool you off and have you wishing summer could hang around a little longer. Make sure to snap a picture of yourself enjoying one of these cocktails (did I mention they are beautifully photogenic?) and tag #CDAmemories so we can see all the lakeside fun! Cheers!
