Need a refreshing drink for those hot summer afternoons?

SOL Cocina and Nekter Juice Bar have teamed up to make that a reality.

Known for its fresh juices, Nekter Juice Bar has introduced Nekter on the Rocks, a collection of three low-calorie, premium cold-pressed mixers that transform ordinary spirits into vibrant, flavorful cocktails.

Visit SOL Cocina at Scottsdale Quarter, 15037 N. Scottsdale Road, and enjoy the SOL Sunset—created by Sol’s Beverage Director, Colin Pflugradt, using the Arizona Sunset flavor from the Nekter on The Rocks line. The SOL Sunset, made with grapefruit, orange, blood orange, peach and agave is available there until mid-August.

Order this refreshing cocktail at SOL and you will also receive a recipe card with instructions on how to make your own drink at home. The cards can also be used at Nekter for $2 off a mixer.

  • To make the SOL Sunset at home:
  • Fill a martini shaker with ice
  • Add 1-1/2 oz premium blue agave tequila
  • ½ oz St. Germain Liqueur
  • 4 oz Arizona Sunset Mixer
  • Shake well and strain over fresh ice
