A perfectly refreshing spring-time concoction to sip poolside in a kicky bikini or elegant caftan.
You may have upped your cocktail game beyond the red plastic cup, but there’s no reason to put on airs when it comes to poolside drinking. A festive but not-too-fruity beverage is just the thing for warm spring weather–all the better if the garnish comes from your own garden–so try a tipple courtesy of Orlando’s favorite mixologists at Highball & Harvest. Just keep the pool water out of it.
This refreshing cocktail recipe comes to us from Edible Orlando.
