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…
