Staycation Tip: 4 Cocktail Ideas to Get Beach Vibes at Home

Perfect for those who don’t have time for a summer getaway.

( Who says summer is just all about the beach and long road trips? For true-blue homebodies and busy working bees, the scorching-hot season is the perfect excuse to retreat from the sun and linger in...the great indoors with friends. There’s no shame in having a staycation! Make it more exciting with Johnnie Walker Red Label, a vibrant and most versatile blended scotch whisky with a warm and zesty flavor. Its golden amber color in itself already creates a beachside vibe—so IG-worthy, and #nofilterneeded!
