What is it about summer that makes cocktails taste so much better? On a hot and humid summer evening, nothing hits the spot like an ice cold beverage. One of our favorite things to do lately is make a fun drink and bring it up to the rooftop of our building. Sipping a refreshing cocktail with a view of the city is what summer in NYC is all about! Our drink of choice the past few weeks has been this Ginger Golden Margarita. The bright color and tropical flavor make it the perfect refreshing summer cocktail.

Memorial Day weekend has to be one of the best weekends of the year….it signifies that summer is here! 3 months of lazier days and vacations and just a more relaxed feeling overall. I am a fall / winter girl, but even I can’t resist the allure of summer.

And what better way to toast the season than with a refreshing and beautiful cocktail – a Kumquat Mojito! Mojtos are a perfect summertime cocktail – so refreshing and tropical, and adding some muddled Kumquat to the mix gives these cocktails a great color and such a bright, citrus flavor!

I am currently in LA for a girl’s trip! TheBetterHalf is stuck at home studying for the CFA. It has been a rough few months full of work and studying for him….June 6 can’t come soon enough! But since I don’t have to study, I figured I should go have some fun for the both of us.  Bring on the cocktails!

Despite having a reputation as a bit of an old-fashioned drink (not to be confused with an Old Fashioned drink), I’ve always had a soft spot for whiskey sours. During my summer breaks during college and law school (aka my formative drinking years), my friends and I spent many nights at the Jersey Shore (no, not that Jersey Shore, ugh, this one) kicking back and enjoying some whiskey sours before partaking in our usual shenanigans. One of my friends had an ‘old family recipe’ for whiskey sours, and though it wasn’t much more than combining bottom-shelf whiskey with juice concentrate (in a Gatorade cooler no less), it always hit the spot.

Fast forward 5-10 years, and while I no longer drink from Gatorade coolers (usually…), I still enjoy drinking whiskey sours, particularly this Aero Whisky Sour.
