Though there’s still a chill in the air, we can feel the change in seasons. There are tons of ways to welcome the arrival of spring, from spring shoes to new beauty looks. Oh, and happy hour, because we can actually see daylight by the time we get out of work. To celebrate, we’ve mapped out some spring-inspired cocktails on menus around NYC. From fresh herbs to fruity florals, these drinks are our warmer-weather picks for a boozy ode to spring.

Everything is coming up roses with the simple blend of vodka, lime, mint & roses in The Pirate Rose from The Flower Shop.

We like to equate ‘green’ with ‘healthy’, so the ‘Shades of Green’ from De Maria has us feeling genuinely fresh. The creative cocktail consists of tequila, mezcal, martinique rum, velvet falernum, kiwi, and lime.

If you need us, you can find us cozying up at Honeywell for the Wallflower. The gin-based cocktail which pairs perfectly with basil and lemon and the spiced honey adds warmth for those still-chilly days.

The pear and rose cocktail from ABCV is a mixture of 123 reposado, rosewater lemonade, pear brandy. The lemony hues are a ray of light while we wait for summer.

The ‘Perfume V’ from Elsa is a dainty yet punchy blend of tequila, Creme de violette, St. Germain, egg white, lemon, and rosewater. The floral notes are reflected with a rose petal garnish that announces, “spring has sprung.”
