Summer is just around the corner, friends, and I have a feeling it’s going to be a particularly good one.
My goal for the season is to spend as much time with friends and family as humanly possible. Preferably outdoors in some form of Nancy Meyers-inspired linen ensemble with a festive, perfectly chilled cocktail in hand.
Should you like to join me in this thrilling summer plan, I’ve taken the liberty of rounding up my seasonal cocktail favorites below. Featuring a variety of liquors, flavor profiles (tart! sweet! herbal! spicy!), there’s a little something for every type of cocktail and mocktail lover.
Cheers to a fabulous summer, friends!
p.s. Don’t forget to be a little extra when it comes to your garnishes. A well-decorated cocktail is one of life’s simple pleasures…

Strawberry Thyme Cooler
Made with muddled strawberries, thyme, lemon, vodka, and St. Germain, this refreshing Strawberry Thyme Cooler is perfect for all your summer celebrations!
It’s got all the glorious flavors of the classic mojito (lime+mint+rum. duh.), but the addition of fresh pineapple puree and ginger simple syrup gives it an irresistible tanginess and the subtlest of kicks. It’s bright, it’s fresh, and it goes down far too easily.
