LE CLUB AVENUE in Long Branch NJ and Summer Recipe for Blueberry Lemonade
Sun, sand, surf, and a cool, refreshing drink in hand. That's a recipe for a successful summer day. And we have a suggestion for the spot that can make it happen in Long Branch, New Jersey.
Open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, Le Club Avenue is an upscale beach club on the Atlantic Ocean in Long Branch, NJ. Romantically reminiscent of the Mediterranean, guests can enjoy special amenities including cabanas, a terrace pool, comfy beach chairs, and most importantly delicious food, frozen drinks and cocktails. Right next to Le Club and open to the public for summer sips is the Beach Bar at Avenue, which is nestled between the boardwalk and Atlantic Ocean.
Specialty frozen drinks and cocktails, from Avenue, include the BBC with Sailor Jerry's Rum, Bailey's fresh banana and coconut puree; Blueberry Lemonade with Belvedere Wild Berry, fresh lemon, blueberry puree and fresh squeezed lime; Summerhouse with Hendrick's Gin, St. Germain and Fresh Melon Purée; Coconut Martini with Ciroc Coconut, Coconut Purée, Meyer Lemon and Ginger Beer; Tropical Iced Tea with Belvedere Lemon Vodka, Passion Fruit, Lemon Juice, Iced Tea, Agave Nectar and Fresh Mint. They also have a specialty cocktail named for Avenue's sister property, the boutique hotel Bungalow, Le Bungalow with Green Mark Vodka, muddled strawberries, fresh basil, mint, orange and lemon juice.
