Now that the weather has sufficiently warmed, Seattle is feeling sunny and summery. These long, breezy days were practically made for outdoor happy hours spent enjoying crafted cocktails. Or at least, that is what I tell myself every summer when I indulge in the tasty libations that seem endemic to the season. Beautiful weather has a habit of making high-functioning alcoholics of all of us, what with the rooftop patios, boats, and other prime locations for drinking. In the spirit of such drunken revelry, I will be publishing a series on my favorite summertime cocktails, their history, and my chosen recipe. Salut!
