What in the world is a cocktail pool?
It’s definitely a place to gather for drinks and a party on a hot afternoon or a cool evening, but the cocktail pool is so much more. The cocktail pool is usually described as a swimming pool that is smaller than a traditional backyard pool…a mini pool.
Cocktail pools are smaller than a play pool. Although designed typically for smaller, challenging lots, spools can be found in almost any backyard scene. Typically, a cocktail pool is the same depth throughout and a great way to take a cooling dip in the summer. By adding a heating element, the cocktail pool can be turned into a spa (or spool) in the cooler weather.
“Cocktail design” is a description of what is happening. It’s the blending of ingredients that captivate all the senses: eye-pleasing environments, rich water sounds, warm toasty fires, fragrant blooming flowers and the alluring scent of steaks on the BBQ. In most cases, each element needs to be appropriately sized to meet a manageable budget — thus, the cocktail design.
The vast amenities available for your cocktail pool can provide the advantages of a standard swimming pool in less than one-tenth of the space. Entertainment-focused features such as underwater speakers and fiber optic lighting, and comfort-focused choices like integrated seating ledges make the cocktail pool a perfect place to cool off and enjoy…cocktails! And for the fitness-minded household, a swim stream – a water jet that provides a current against which swimming is possible, even in a cocktail pool – can be incorporated.
Best of all, the smaller size of the cocktail pool can make it economically feasible to create a real gem. Materials such as granite or glass tiles that would be costly in larger pools are perfect for cocktail pools. And with attention to landscaping design detail, a very special and Unique environment can be created for the cocktail pool to make the best use of your property and perfectly highlight your outdoor entertainment area.
