Break out the mason jars, get out the toothpick umbrellas, and don’t forget the ice. Temps are on the rise, which according to us, means lounging in the sun with a permanent cocktail in hand. And, we've got five simple and delicious drink recipes for laid-back imbibing at its chillest from owner, mixologist, and head beard, Dylan O’Brien, of our favorite hunting-themed bar, Bloodhound.
Not only do these drinks have really short ingredient lists, but even better, you can do most of the prep work ahead of time. So, when you’re ready to get your party on, all that’s left to do is a splash here, a dash there, and perhaps a swizzle. Your guests will love the show and after one sip, they’ll be mighty impressed by your bartending skills — no muddling, reaming, or smashing required. Click through to see how to craft these five soothing libations on your own. Salut!
