Whether you're hosting a summer party or just need to cool off on a hot day, a great cocktail recipe is always good to have on hand. While a classic cocktail will never lead you astray, experimentation is never more fun than when mixing a drink. And because summer is bursting with fresh produce, it's just the right time to think beyond the standard martini and try something with a bit of seasonal flavor.
Experimenting with fresh herbs, fruits or a unique liqueur -- this summer we're using Luxardo maraschino liqueur, St. Germaine elderflower liqueur and Lillet Rosￃﾩ as mixers -- will keep your summer nights interesting and refreshing. Check out the 30 summer cocktail recipes below and find the cocktail that calls out to you.
