The sun is out, spring is the in the air - and in our cocktail glasses - thanks to these seasonally inspired sips. The change of season calls for a change in drinks! This is the time of year when we like to begin parties with an easy, crowd-friendly drink - perhaps a pitcher of strawberry-basil margaritas, or a simple whiskey sour. Here are five favorite springtime sips + recipes to try over the next few months!
Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail
Lillet Rose, a fortified-wine blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscatel, has the aroma of flowers and ripe berries -- perfect for a springtime aperitif. Garnishing the drinks with edible flowers is a lovely touch.
Strawberry Basil Margaritas
Throwing parties can be tons of work. Pitcher drinks make the job a little easier! You can make them the night before, pop them in the fridge, and sit back and relax the next day as your guests can drink to their hearts' content. Always have a pitcher on hand, because it's important to keep your guests happy!
Red grapes may seem more at home in a wine glass, but we love the pop of flavor they add to this refreshing beer cocktail.
Sous le Soleil
Soak in the sun with this mixture of grapefruit + cognac.
Crafted with a calming, floral chamomile syrup and a barrel aged gin, this is a drink with appealingly citrusy, floral personality.
