Oh my. Is that... is that sunlight? Warmth? Why yes, yes it is! It’s springtime! With this fantastic season officially in bloom, we have excellent cocktail ingredients just waiting to be chopped, sliced, and juiced for some really delicious drinks. Fold up that fleece blanket and brush those last embers out of the fireplace — it’s time for lawn chairs, sunglasses, and warm-weather cocktails!
The seasonal fruit offerings available to us in these next couple of months are pretty fantastic, and make for some really fun and exotic cocktails. Just look at our Seasonal Sipping ingredients this month: pineapple, lychee, and mango! These three fruits are some of the most versatile, flavorful, and easy to work with ingredients of the season. As always, you’ll want to go with the freshest fruit possible, so I recommend hitting up the local farmers' market or any place where you really trust the produce, and go (lychee) nuts.
Read on for some delicious springtime cocktails that feature all of these fantastic and seasonal ingredients. Let us know which ones are your favorites, and don’t hesitate to leave some suggestions for us. Cheers, and happy cocktailing!
