Fresh on the virtual floor…the Quincy Davis for Volcom Collection! For the second season, surfer/model/designer/all-around East Coast beach babe, Quincy Davis teamed up with the Volcom design crew to release this special edition collab. Full of Americana, sun-bleached dyes, and wedges of bright, Summer citrus, the collection blurs the line from sand to soiree.
With roots in some of the most influential East Coast surf towns (Montawk, Rincon and New York), Quincy brings a unique blend of design and surf sub-culture to the table. And because we love bringing you uncommon goods, it seems like a perfect fit that we launch the collection here at SWELL.
“My main inspiration for creating my summer line with was to make cute pieces able to be worn from beach to street. I believe my lifestyle in Montauk really shows through my clothing style. Being at the beach or making a quick trip to NYC, my pieces from the line can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down!” – Quincy Davis
This beachy beverage was born on the sands of Salt Creek Beach, where I worked at a bar-tender at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. Yes, it seems a little fruity but plenty of surf industry captains sipped down countless Catalina Coolers after sun soaked sessions at Gravels. Inspired by the island 26 mi off our coastline, the Regis charged $16 a pop and Carl Nolet himself (Ketel Owner) sucks them down at the beach club too.
Ingredients: 2 Parts Ketel One Citron
2 Parts Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
Strawberry Puree (commonly found at most markets, try Daily brand)
Lemon-cello or Cointreau
Frozen Strawberries & Ice
1. Fill a tall cocktail glass or mason jar with ice & frozen berries
2. Pour equal parts Ketel Citron and Lemonade into glass (yes, I have a heavy hand)
3. Add a splash of lemon or orange liqueur
4. Stir a lot, or beat it up in a cocktail shaker
5. Pour into glass (Optional: coat rim of glass with sugar before)
6. Drizzle strawberry puree over drink, and watch the trippy booze waves
7. Serve & enjoy summer vibes wherever it takes you…
