With the weather heating up (well, at least it should be) in the northern parts of the world, it means that it’s time to bust out those spring cocktail recipes. Let’s take a look at some of the most delicious and refreshing recipes from across the web.

1. Bloody Orange Sunrise

    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.

        4. The Summertime Smash

          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

              Recipe Source

              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.

              7. Beer Colada

                Recipe Source

                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


                  Recipe Source

                  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

                    Recipe Source

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

                    10. Hibiscus Ginger Rum Punch

                      Recipe Source

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

                      11. Bloody Augustus

                        Recipe Source

                        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

                          Recipe Source

                          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.

                            Recipe Source 

                            A fruity twist on a classic that’s perfect for lounging by the pool and soaking up the sunshine.

                            14. Cheeky Monkey

                              Recipe Source

                              A cheeky monkey for a cheeky brunch cocktail.

                              15. Peach, Lime And Cachaça Slushie

                                Why let kids have all the icy drink fun? Enjoy this incredibly adult slushie that’s filled with summery, fruity flavors.
