Whether it’s something light and refreshing or juicy and boozy, we’ve rounded up 5 of our favorite Spring cocktails that are sure to get you out of the house and out in the sunshine! These cocktails are fresh, floral and fruity and we can’t wait to share them with you.
Lavender Bliss (in photo above)
The Industry, 750 Adams St.
At the Industry it’s all about elegant yet approachable hospitality and this cocktail is no exception. The vodka is infused with lavender for 24 hours before shaken up with ruby red grapefruit juice, agave, pamplemousse liqueur and fresh lemon. Served with citrus bitters the Lavender Bliss is bright, chic and refreshing.
Back Porch Lemonade
Lucy’s American Tavern, 13 Granite Ave.
The Back Porch Lemonade will most definitely convince you to grab a seat near the open garage windows and soak up the sunshine. This boozy twist on their house-made lemonade is mixed with Redemption Bourbon, creme de mure, and cardamom. We promise that you won’t be able to order just one!
dbar, 1236 Dorchester Ave
As the name suggests, this cocktail is definitely the latest in all things Spring. Whiskey, lemon, orange juice, orange bitters and blackberries it’s juicy and thirst quenching and we just can’t get enough. We recommend grabbing a table on the patio, Spring Fashion in hand, paired with their grilled soy glazed pork chop.
Pepino Fino (in photo above)
Yellow Door Taqueria, 2297 Dorchester Ave.
Yellow Door Taqueria may be best known for their killer tacos, but their specialty cocktails have certainly been turning heads since their opening last fall. Swing by after work and try the Pepino Fino. Served in a flute, the Pepino Fino is a perfectly balanced combination of Elderflower, Melon Liqueur, Reposado Tequila, house-made cucumber cordial, and lime; topped off with bubbles. Fresh, floral, and playful; we’re loving this cocktail paired with their Camaron De Yucatan ceviche.
Public House Punch
Landmark Public House, 772 Adams St.
The Public House Punch is exactly what we’re craving as the weather starts to warm up. This punch is a stiff but juicy cocktail made with Three Olives raspberry vodka, Three Olives orange vodka, Amaretto, orange juice and cranberry juice served in a pint glass. Stop in for lunch on a Friday, but be warned you might find yourself playing hookie for the rest of the afternoon!

Tulum Beach Tea
Yellow Door Taqueria, 2297 Dorchester Ave
We just couldn’t pass up sharing this refreshingly light mocktail with you! If you’re not in the mood for alcohol, the Tulum Beach Tea is the perfect solution. This mocktail is a vivid combination of Hibiscus Tea, raspberry, agave and has us daydreaming of the beaches of Tulum, Mexico! (If alcohol is more your style, ask the bartender to make this mocktail into a cocktail with the addition of gin!)
