The official drink of summer today, tomorrow, yesterday and forever—the delicious Aperol Spritz. Down one at The Blue Flamingo while you channel Palm Springs.

Blossom Punch | The Standard

Make like a hummingbird and dip your beak in the Blossom Punch from The Standard—Tanqueray, butter vodka, nectarine verjus, cider and lemon sherbert—and a nectarine puree and basil garnish. It’s a garden party in your mouth.

Jasmine | 399 Bar

Know true happiness, with this perfectly fresh and citrusy cocktail from the movers and shakers at 399 Bar—gin, campari, cointreau, lemon juice and sugar syrup. It feels like summer slapped you in the face—and you like it.

Sweet & Sour | Who’s Your Mumma

Apparently it's “Ben’s pick” for summer good mouth times. Order this beauty from the cocktail of the week board at Who’s Your Mumma so that you, like Ben, can know eternal happiness—campari, chambord and orange.

Plum N Rum | Bib & Tucker
