Longer Days, Happier Hours

The temps are finally rising, beaches are filling up and patio parties are no longer a thing of the past, which can only mean that summer is finally here. With summer's arrival comes longer days, making for happier happy hours. The earlier the sun rises and the later it sets results in more time after work to gather your crew for an outdoor soirée. In celebration of sunny days that are here to stay, we're sharing some of our favorite cocktail recipes to accompany you on all of your summer adventures.

Raise a Glass to the Graduates

College graduation season is upon us. It's a time to celebrate all of your accomplishments over the last four (or maybe more) years and live it up before you have to hit the ground running in the so-called "real world." Here's to the late night study sessions, the roommates who turned into best friends, the "Freshman 15" you're still attempting to lose and the endless memories made along the way. Once you walk across that stage, accept your diploma and finally turn your tassel to the left, raise a glass with these celebratory cocktails.

National Moscow Mule Day

Today we're raising a glass to our favorite holiday of the year -- National Moscow Mule Day. Since 1874, Barritt's Ginger Beer has been the go-to mixer for a number of drinks, but when this beloved cocktail made its way into inception in 1941, Barritt's took on a whole new purpose in bars across the globe. The truth is, we've never met a Moscow Mule we didn't like, but with so many different flavor combinations... can you blame us?
