Ocean Avenue Cocktail Hour
We believe in toasting a hard day’s work, even if your schedule consists of nothing more than racing to the rooftop and meticulously painting on sunscreen.
Our favorite seaside sips—sugar-doused sodas and unabashedly ridiculous mixed drinks—prompted a few of our new Ocean Avenue colors, and we’ve improvised a few simple recipes to go with them. You might have some of these ingredients stocked already, but if not, the bodega’s just around the corner.
A few notes:
- We like double-duty Mason jars to store our concoctions. Give ‘em a shake (but not if carbonation is involved—your eyeballs will thank you).
- Club soda, seltzer, sparkling mineral water, tonic—everybody has a preference. Switch it up if you like.
- If you’ve got limoncello, use it in place of lemonade.
