Top Places for a Poolside Cocktail

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think, “summer”? If you’re like us, lounging by the pool, sipping on one of your favorite drinks is probably high on the list. Scottsdale is famous for spacious resorts with luxurious pools, perfect for relaxing on a lazy summer day. What can make or break your day in the sun, though, is the drink in your hand. Check out these cabana-worthy cocktails to go along with that amazing pool.


Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch

Sandy beach, water slide, swaying palm trees – this oasis (above) will have you relaxing behind your sunglasses all day long. Find your spot and order up a guest favorite, the Diamond Raspberry Ricky. This refreshing drink is made with Tanqueray gin, agave nectar, lime wedges and raspberries served on the rocks.

Westin Kierland Resort and Spa

With a lazy river, a waterslide and “flowrider” surfing simulator to cool you off, the Westin Kierland Resort’s water park is the ultimate summer hangout. If you’re going to spend most of your day poolside, make sure you try the Prickly Pear margarita. This Lazy River Libation is a blend of Jose Cuervo Silver Tequila, Triple Sec, prickly pear syrup and Sweet & Sour.

Hotel Valley Ho

With OH Pool’s chic, retro style, you can’t help but feel like you’ve been transported back in time. What’s the perfect potion to go along with that old-school feeling? The OH Pool Punch in a souvenir cup! This cabana cooler combines Bacardi light rum, Malibu coconut rum, fresh-squeezed OJ, pineapple and lime juice, ginger ale and grenadine.

Phoenician Pool

The Phoenician

The crown jewel of The Phoenician’s seven-pool complex is the stunning Mother of Pearl Pool. For a drink that’s as elegant as your surroundings, try a frozen Skinny Mojito made with Bacardi Superior Rum, agave nectar and mint. Feeling decadent? Try the Lava Flow – Bacardi Superior Rum, Malibu Rum, strawberries, bananas, pineapple juice and Crème de Coconut all whipped up into a luscious frozen treat.


Talking Stick Resort

The shallow Lounge Pool at Talking Stick Resort features 16 semi-immersed lounge chairs and in-pool umbrellas for a refreshing way to relax. Cool off with a Jack Honey Arnold Palmer, which blends Jack Daniel’s Honey with lemonade and iced tea splashed over ice.
