We’ve rounded up some of our favorite picks featuring some unexpected but delicious flavor combinations, like the Minted Hibiscus and Raspberry one above. These drinks are perfect for entertaining, so mix a batch for your next brunch or dinner party. Cheers!
|Papaya and Lime Agua Fresca
Perfect for warm-weather sipping, this cocktail combines papaya, fresh lime juice, tequila and Grand Marnier. The vibrant color is a bonus for any table.
|Orange Blossom Gin Fizz
This citrusy drink is perfect for an early spring party. You can find Yuzu juice — which tastes like a combination of grapefruit and mandarin — in Asian markets, but any citrus juice will work.
|Spring White Sangria
This refreshing sangria combines white wine and passion fruit juice with grapes, pears and litchis, a delicately sweet Chinese fruit.
|Passion Fruit Caipirinha
Passion fruit and caipirinhas are both native to Brazil, so mix this cocktail to pretend you’re on vacation. If you can’t find cachaça, substitute vodka to make the equally delicious caipiroska.
|Blood Orange Mojito
In this twist on the classic mojito, blood oranges combine with lime and mint for unique, delicious flavor. Multiply the recipe to make a large batch for a group.
Chef Suzanne Goin created this cocktail, which includes fennel for a surprising but subtle note. For a nonalcoholic version, substitute sparkling water for the sparkling wine.
