There’s little as refreshing during the summer swelter as a cool limeade. But when you add a bit of chile heat and tequila, well, that cooler gets a whole lot hotter.For more great Mexican-inspired drinks—and tacos too!—head right this way.

Scarlet Spritz

Liqueurs , Modern Classics

What’s the one downside to enjoying a Spritz? Getting to the end of it, of course. Head bartender Brandon Lockman, the head bartender at Red Star Tavern in Portland, Ore., meets that challenge with this Spritz version filled with fresh, seasonal flavors. He infuses Aperol with strawberries and stirs it with Lillet Blanc apéritif and rhubarb bitters, served in an absinthe-rinsed Nick & Nora glass and topped with sparkling wine. It comes alongside a tiny carafe nestled in ice, to refill your glass as it’s depleted.

Teal-quila Sunrise

This fun, summer take on the Tequila Sunrise knocks out the grenadine for homemade raspberry syrup (don’t worry, it’s easy!) and a dash of blue curaçao for a drink that’s as tasty as it is colorful.

Campari Orange

Liqueurs , Modern Classics

Think of this as a refined Italian alternative to a Screwdriver. The orange juice makes it a natural fit in the family of brunch cocktails, while the Campari gives it Italian authenticity. The Campari Orange isn’t the most famous use of Campari—that distinction goes to the Negroni—but this aperitivo should really, truly be a brunch staple.

Frangelico Frizzante

Liqueurs , Modern Classics

The Frizzante is a perfect sip for enjoying brunch alfresco. Crafted with wild Tonda Gentile hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, Frangelico adds the perfect nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness complemented by the lime citrus in the Frizzante cocktail.
