Has beer become blasé? Margaritas lost their “cha-cha-cha”? Negronis not doing it for you? Then check out these summer cocktail alternatives, inspired by the two things you’re always looking for in the summer, sunshine and shade.

There are still summer toasts to be made. These will get you back out on the porch and clinking glasses in no time, no blender required.

Sunshine—Vodka

  • Mary Lou Mule / A ginger bite is refreshing.
  • The Parisian / Cape Cod visits the Eiffel Tower.
  • The Curd / A sunny lemon concoction takes limoncello to the next level.

 

Shade—Bourbon
