    Despite the name, this is so much more than your standard fruity cocktail. The olive brine and spice in particular immediately transforms it from a first year sorority drink to a classy post-work beverage.

    2. Heart Of Stone Daiquiri

      For those of you currently living through a Spring that is behaving like Winter, this is the cocktail for you. It combines the warm weather vibes of a daiquiri with winter staples such as sherry.

      3. Old Fashioned Ice Ball

        This is a seriously cool (ha!) concept and a great way to turn a classic like an Old Fashioned into a delicious springtime treat. The best part is that you can do this with any cocktail if an Old Fashioned isn’t your jam.

          A name like that screams afternoon BBQ. The cocktail itself is a slight twist on a julep that will delight the springtime senses.

          5. The Absinthe Frappe

            Whether you’re a pretentious art student or you simply like the taste of aniseed, absinthe is likely to be a favorite of yours. The very idea of this drink invokes images of 19th century Paris, philosophical discussion and tripping balls from the wormwood. This cocktail reinvents the beverage, turning into a perfectly appropriate warm weather beverage.

            6. The Grasshopper

              Now I know warm weather cocktails tend to shy away from anything dairy based, but hear me out! Being a mint-based drink, it’s incredibly refreshing and is reminiscent of ice cream; and who doesn’t love that in the summer? I can’t be the only one who enjoys drinking her desserts. I’d even recommend adding some chocolate shavings as a garnish to mint choc-chip this bad boy.

                Is there anything better than a nice frosty beer on a warm afternoon. Yes, and it’s called a beer colada. I’m not sure what kind of wizardry was used to create this marvel, but I’m a fan of this clash of the titans.

                8. White Wine Sangria

                  I know that sangrias are perfect as the are, but substituting red wine for red adds a lovely warm weather quality that’s reminiscent of fresh lemonade… but with a butt-load of alcohol.

                  9. Caprioska

                    This cocktail is incredibly simplistic in its ingredients and execution, but that’s what’s great about it. Fresh, zesty, delicious.

                      A cocktail that actually contains flower syrup, you can’t get much more spring-like than that.

                      11. Bloody Augustus

                        I’m a big fan of food, so it’s hardly a surprise that I enjoy having delicious finger food and tapas with my afternoon cocktails. It’s for this reason that I really love the idea of a cocktail that cuts out the middle man. That’s right, this thing actually includes cheese and prosciutto. Turn your nose up all you wan; I am so on board with this.

                        12. La Muerte Chiquita

                          This Mandarin-based cocktail is incredibly refreshing, and I would go so far as to say that it could be an excellent addition to brunch.
