Aperol Jasmine Spritz

A make-ahead, big-batch cocktail that's fizzy and refreshing. It's a riff on the Jasmine, a classic gin cocktail, and the popular Aperol Spritz and is just right for sipping before dinner on a summer's day.

Lemon Mezcal Margarita

Say hello to summer's new go-to drink. Instead of the traditional lime juice used in a margarita, we went with lemon juice to soften the smokiness of the mezcal. It's light and refreshing enough for a pool party but has a little edge thanks to its salt and pepper rim.

Iced Passion-Fruit Green Tea

Drinks that quench the whole crowd, kids included, are a hot commodity on a summer day. This fruity, iced green-tea is pretty enough to serve at a nice brunch or sip casually by the pool. It's also a cinch to make but allow at least two hours for chilling before serving.

Irish coffee is the perfect finale to a St. Patrick's Day feast.

Turmeric-Mango Smoothie

Packed full of spice and sunshine, that's this tropical mango smoothie (pictured center). The golden color of the fruit is boosted by fresh turmeric, an inflammation-fighting superfood. The pinch of black pepper doesn't just add pep; it contains a compound, piperine, that helps the body absorb curcumin, the antioxidant found in turmeric.
