It’s officially Summer and here are my favorite beverages to enjoy in a bar, on a roof or by the shore. 

Night and Weekends Salt and Ash is an epic twist on a Margarita. Mezcal, Grapefruit infused Tequila, Marachino and orange bitters make this a unique and delicious smokey cherry flavored sensation 

Vandal’s  Palinitas is a great spin on the spicy Margarita combining Mezcal with thail basil and grapefruit beer and bitters 

Kings County Distillery Grapefruit Jalapeño Whisky- remarkably smooth and tasty. Drink it straight up with water on the side.

El Senorio Silver– this Tequila takes like banana flavored melted marshmallows.  Go to or send someone to Tulum to get it for you. Sip it…sip it slow 

Rose chilled is the perfect Summer Wine. Now if I can just find a bottle of this great Rose from Marianne Vineyards outside of CapeTown in NYC…in the meantime I’ll enjoy bottles of Mas de Pampelonne from vineyards by Saint Tropez that I found in Murray Hill

Briney Melon Gose by Anderson Valley – my current favorite Summer brew. Bonus it comes in a can. I discovered it at Berg’n and found it by the six at Whole Foods.

Taim’s Ginger Mint Lemonade – no booze, just an awesome Israeli twist on Lemonade
Grady’s Cold Brew – My Iced Coffee of choice to make at home. Drop a shot of Vodka and a splash of half and half if “The Dude” drops by. Order it up on-line.

Frozen White Negroni – equal parts of Gin, Dolan Blanc Vermouth and substitute Campari with Tempus Fugit Kina, Suze or Bitterman’s Amere Sauvage…thrown in a blender with ice…top with a splash of Lavender Bitters and a wedge of grapefruit. A great twist on the classic. Available at Hunter’s Salon de Ciel.
