When we think of summer cocktails we often think light and breezy. From June thru August, spritzers, sangria and those ubiquitous spiked seltzers have their moment in the sun… literally! But sometimes we crave a beverage that packs a little more punch. We asked General Manager Danielle Wittig and bartender Amber Figueredo at Triple Sun Spirits to share a few recipes for guys and gals who are looking for seriously refreshing cocktails with a little extra kick!
