Warm baths are not just for cold winter days, they also rejuvenate the whole body. There are many health benefits connected to taking a bath including loosening tensions, alleviating muscle pains, and detoxing the body. We love going to a spa every once in a while, but there’s a different sense of peace and accomplishment when we can recreate our favorite spa moments at home.
Our must have essentials are bath salts, a candle, and of course, white wine to help wind down. We each have our own relaxation rituals in place but why not try something new? Spice it up? Or, shake it up with your favorite cocktail both in and outside of the bath? Try Laki's cocktail bath soaks and a cocktail in your hand at the same time!
Laki Naturals Cocktail Bath Soaks are inspired by all-time classic cocktails that you can easily recreate at home to drink while relaxing in your cocktail tub!
The Laki bundle includes:
- Long Island Iced Tea
- Pina Colada
- Lychee Martini
- Sparkling Sangria
- Sex on the Beach
Long Island Iced Tea
A Long Island iced tea is known for the variety of alcohols in it. This includes vodka, rum, tequila, triple sec, and gin! Mix all 5 alcohols in a tall glass with ice, a splash of coke, and sour mix. There you have it, your Long Island iced tea! If you want to be a little fancy, top it off with a lemon wedge.
A popular vacation drink is the Pina Colada. Our recipe is very simple because we want to spend more time in our relaxing home spa than making the drink! You only need 3 ingredients, 6 oz pineapple juice, 3oz coconut cream, and light rum. The typical ounce count in this recipe is 2oz, but if you like a stronger drink well hey, you’re the bartender! Mix all 3 ingredients with ice into a blender and there you have it, a Pina Colada! Top it off with a pineapple slice if you’re feeling a little beach-y!
Mojitos are one of the most refreshing classic cocktails, just like our Laki Naturals Mojito bath salts! It’s a combination of sweet, citrus, and mint which is traditionally added to complement the rum! This drink has 5 ingredients; 1-2oz white rum, a splash of lime juice, 2 tsp sugar, topped off with soda water, and a mint leaf. If you want to be fancy, muddle the mint with sugar and lime juice first. But it’s also ok to just throw everything in a pitcher and mix it up! Next, add your rum and top it off with soda water!
Don’t be intimidated here, Lychee martinis are easier than they sound. You only need 4 ingredients: 2oz vodka, 4oz lychee juice, a splash of vermouth, and 2 lychees to garnish if you have them! If you have a cocktail shaker fill it with ice and all your ingredients (except the garnish), shake, and pour!
Sangria recipes vary by taste, recipe, and tradition. But here is our easy take on a Sangria; You’ll only need fruit (typically apples and oranges), orange juice, red wine, and brown sugar! Chop ½ an apple and ½ an orange up into square pieces. Place them in your pitcher and add 3tbsp brown sugar along with ¾ cups of orange juice which you can later adjust to taste. Top it off with your favorite delicate red wine to taste and add ice! Simple as that!
Sex On The Beach
Just as sexy as it sounds, it tastes even sexier, and fruity! Because we value bath time, this recipe is only 4 ingredients: 1 1/3 oz Cranberry juice, 1 1/3 oz Orange juice, 1 1/3 oz Vodka, 2/3 oz Peach schnapps. Fun fact, it’s an International Bartenders Association Official Cocktail. Add all the ingredients into a tall glass filled with ice, stir and garnish with an orange slice to eat after your delightful bath!
