These refreshing cocktail recipes are guaranteed to induce a summer state of mind.

Few culinary pleasures so exuberantly herald the arrival of summer weather as a frosty, crafted cocktail. Enjoyed poolside with friends, while tending the grill or relished solo with a great beach read, these stellar, sunshine-inspired cocktail recipes readily promote a summer state of mind.

The PATRÓN St-Rita offers an elegant variation on the classic margarita, effortlessly elevated by a dash of elderflower-infused ST~GERMAIN and a flourish of blooms, styled by renowned floral designer Maurice Harris. Bently Heritage Estate’s Lucas Huff spins a summer classic with his Freedom Tonic, a crowd pleaser that perfectly pairs fresh fruit with the Nevada distillery’s spicy and citrusy Juniper Grove Gin. And Kendie Williams, star mixologist at Four Seasons Resort Nevis, crafts a simple seasonal spritzer with The Waterfall.
