The Perfect June Drinks

Posted: 06/01/2012 11:44 am

We love a bone-chillingly cold Martini as much as the next cocktail fan (or British super-spy). But the world of gin drinks is, of course, much, much bigger than just this one famous concoction.

In fact, dozens of classics call for the juniper-flavored spirit. So even if you generally prefer that other white alcohol, vodka, we encourage you to mix up one of these refreshing gin recipes.

To get you started, here are a few of our favorite summery elixirs that call for the liquor. They're perfect for a hot evening or a lazy sunny afternoon. Cheers!
