Lady Grey

If your plans for the day involve swinging in a hammock or enjoying an outdoor brunch with friends, make a pitcher of this cocktail featuring mint, ginger, citrus, and black tea. More

I Dream of Greenie

This cocktail tastes just like spring. A clean London Dry Gin like Bombay Dry or Beefeater provides a great base for the sweet peas, the cooling mint, peppery arugula, and floral black pepper in this drink. More

Sierra Madre Sunrise

This mezcal drink, made with bittersweet Aperol and fresh lemon, can go two ways: with Angostura bitters, it's spicy-earthy-cinnamony. Or try chocolate bitters, which play up the sweet and bitter orange flavors in the Aperol. More

Honey and Marmalade Sour

Orange marmalade may be sweet, but it also offers an underlying bitterness reminiscent of burnt caramel. Lemon juice helps the citrus sing while honey mellows the whole thing out in this intensely flavorful vodka sour. It's the kind of versatile cocktail that's equally appropriate day or night, all year round. More

Thyme for a Salty Dog

Salty Dogs are great with gin, but we like to use vodka in this rendition—its more neutral flavor lets the interplay of bitter grapefruit and woodsy thyme take center stage. The cocktail's signature salt-coated rim gives the tart, herbal combo a welcome jolt. More

Sherry Martini

Pair gin with vermouth and you get botanicals on top of botanicals. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but bring sherry into the mix and you'll find something both more smooth and electrifying, with hints of marcona almonds and a wonderful savory bite. More

Lemongrass Sour

Lemongrass infused vodka—combined with lemon bitters suspended on a head of eggwhite foam—makes for a light and delicately citrusy spring cocktail. More

The Bitter Irishman

This St. Patrick's Day-appropriate cocktail is way better than green beer. The whiskey is light and almost floral, and the amaro is spicy and rich. Fresh lemon gives the drink a punch of refreshing sour flavor, and the drink finishes up with the whiskey's bite and a little bitterness from the amaro. More

Pumpkin Shrub

I've paired pumpkin with a natural fall partner: apple cider vinegar. The flavors are pumpkiny with a hint of cinnamon and ginger to very gently remind you of pie season, without hitting you over the head with the Pumpkin Pie Spice flavors that are so common at this time of year. More

Spiced Cranberry Rum Fizz

Incorporating the classic flavors of cranberry sauce--tart cranberries, the warm spice of orange zest, and a kick of ginger--this drink re-imagines the timeless flavors of the season. More
