The perfect cool-down.

Summer is a time for celebration and socialising.

And when the sun is out, one of the best ways to catch up with those nearest and dearest to you is by spending some time outside with a healthy dose of day drinking.

With the help of Matso’s Broome Brewery, we’ve rounded up three summer-ready cocktails for those picnic and poolside kind of days.

Check out the recipes below, and remember to always drink responsibly.


Pineapple Sangria


  • 1/2 a pineapple, cut into pieces
  • 4 large sprigs of fresh basil
  • 3 cups 100% pineapple juice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of rum
  • 1 bottle of white wine (use riesling for a sweeter sangria)
  • 1 bottle of Matso’s Mango Beer (or substitute with sparkling water)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice


1. Place half of the pineapple pieces and basil sprigs in the bottom of a large pitcher.
2. Add all the liquid ingredients and stir.
3. Serve over crushed ice and garnish with the rest of the pineapple and fresh basil. Either serve immediately or let the flavours meld overnight.


Dirty Mojito

2. Half-fill the glass with ice, add three mint leaves, then fill the rest of the glass with ice.
3. Top up with Matso’s Ginger Beer and stir.
4. Garnish with lime wedges and the rest of the mint leaves and serve.
