With summer right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking in a different mode. Instead of comforting and warming, we want refreshing and cool! These summer sips are perfect for any weekend gathering or drinks after work ~ anytime you need to refresh, cool down or just unwind and relax!

Crafted by Jessica Friedman of The Dead Rabbit in New York, the Breeze de Los Altos is a refreshing drink made with Tequila Cazadores Blanco, mint syrup, cucumber, and lemon. Top it off with coconut water and grab your sunscreen before heading to the beach.

The Speyside Soda and Macleod Highball are two simple highball recipes that are perfect for cooling you down after a day in the sun. The Speyside Soda deliciously combinesCraigellachie 13 with cream soda and pineapple, while the Macleod Highball mixes Aberfeldy 12 with St-Germain, soda water and lemon.
