Haute Summer: Cocktails poolside. Yes, please!

Renaissance Hotel's Summer Cocktail Cart

If you haven’t noticed, summer has officially arrived. Well, not officially really (June 21 for all you technical people). In any case, what’s more haute than a cocktail by the pool? Um, how about a cocktail with an endless amount of options?

Soak up your twelve weeks of sun in style, no matter your destination. Renaissance Hotels nationwide are hooking you up all season long with their Summer Cocktail Cart, a trolley of delectable tastes that will satisfy all buds. Choose from fifteen signature options including Raspberry Refresh-Mint, Cabana Cooler, Summer Thyme, Bikini Ready (a low cal option!), Skinny-Mini Berry Mojito or customize your own without breaking your tan. After all, what’s a drink poolside if you have to do all the work?
