Favorite Spring Cocktails
Lemon Blueberry Daiquiri
This brightly colored daiquiri has major springtime vibes. Between the fruity sweetness of the berries and the bright, citrusy flavor, the rum tends to fade to the background, making these surprisingly drinkable despite the strength. (So please drink responsibly!)
This cocktail couldn’t be simpler with only 3 ingredients, shaken and served. We love garnishing with a lime wheel and a bit of lime zest to get some of the intense lime taste that comes from the oils that are released when zested.
Few things are as refreshing and delightful on a hot day as a frosty frozen daiquiri. Even diehard fans of piña colada will love sipping the intoxicating blend of juicy, red strawberries brightened with lime. For best results, we call for two types of strawberries: fresh and frozen. Using frozen strawberries gives the body to the drink without watering down the flavor like ice would.
There’s no doubt about it—we’re living in the year of the Negroni. But if you look closer at the lineage of everyone’s favorite viral drink, you’ll find that the Americano is just as sophisticated and even easier to make at home. It’s a simple drink with just three ingredients: Campari, club soda, and the best sweet vermouth you can find topped with an orange slice. For those new to the world of Campari and vermouth-based cocktails, think of them as your new favorite pre-dinner beverage!
Mint juleps are often only brought up around the time of the Kentucky Derby, and we think that’s a crying (neighing?) shame! Not only does the classic frosty cup and minty flavor provide a cooling freshness on a hot day, it’s also one of the best low-effort cocktails out there. It’s only 3 ingredients (if you don’t count ice) and the prep couldn’t be simpler.
