They're easy to make and easy to drink!

Hi, I'm Brittany. I'm a BuzzFeed writer and I'm here to show you how to make some delicious, island-inspired cocktails.

For this post, the LCBO provided me with four different cocktails to try.

watermelon spritz cocktail, dark 'n' stormy, paloma, and jamaican mule

First up is the Ciroc Watermelon Spritz.

For this summery cocktail, you'll need:

bottle of watermelon ciroc vodka, mint, watermelon, lime, lemonade, cranberry juice, soda water, ice

Here it is! A delightful, sweet, and summery bevvie reminiscent of your favourite watermelon-flavoured candy.

Next up is the Gosling's Dark 'N' Stormy.

Here's what you'll need to make it:

bottle of gosling's black seal bermuda rum, 1.5 ounces rum, ice, lime, 6 ounces ginger beer

The results: A sweet, spicy, and downright delicious cocktail. Plus, how satisfying is that floating layer?

Our third cocktail is the Patron Paloma.

Here's what you'll need:

a bottle of silver patron, salt-rimmed glass, salt, tequila shot, ice, grapefruit soda, slices of grapefruit and lime

Look at that colour! This dreamy cocktail tastes like it looks — sweet, citrusy, and grapefruit forward.
