5 must-try spring cocktails

Apr 7, 2015

Is there anything better than a fresh cocktail on the patio when the weather finally turns warm? I don’t think so! So before your next liquor store run, you might want to check out a few of these must-trys–which don’t just sound delicious, they look like a work of art! I love the idea of using fresh herbs to add a savory kick, or just-picked flowers as the perfect garnish!

Neal is the cocktail master in our relationship, so hopefully he won’t mind adding these to his to-do list. For whatever reason, I’m a much less skilled in the mixology department than I am in the cooking one. I think maybe it involves too much measuring and math. (Whoops!)

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you, 5 spring cocktails that have me totally drooling. Recipes perfected not by myself, but from several stunning ladies who know a thing or two about their crafty booze. (One of them being Martha Stewart, who, has earned so much more respect from me after she roasted Justin Bieber and gave him tips on surviving in jail. Go girl. P.S. I still love Justin Bieber.)
