It’s finally getting hot in Nashville, and if you’re anything like us you’re ready to have friends over on the patio for some catching up over cocktails. While the pool may not be warm enough to jump in yet, spring makes for the perfect time of year to spend evenings outside with a magazine and a drink, or sunny afternoons on the porch with gals and spritzers. We’ve rounded up a list of some deliciously-bright warm weather cocktails you’re going to want to make at home!
Herradura Pomegranate Margarita
Herradura’s La Fortuna cocktail is a springy take on the classic marg. It’s both refreshingly sweet and tart with lime, agave and pomegranate flavors. This recipe happens to be a TNE favorite, so you’re going to want to try it for yourself.
- 2 parts Herradura Silver
- 1 part fresh-squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 – 3/4 part agave nectar (to taste)
- 1 part pomegranate juice
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
- Shake hard to melt some of the ice.
- Strain over fresh ice.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
Grapefruit and Sage Champagne Cocktails
The answer is always yes when champagne is the question. This yummy combination of bubbles, grapefruit and sage screams spring with both the color and the taste. Floating Kitchen posted a great recipe, and we’ve rounded up the simple ingredients and directions below:
For the Simple Syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 bunches of fresh sage leaves
For the Cocktails
- Pink grapefruit juice
- Sage simple syrup
- Angostura bitters
- Ice cubes
- Champagne or other sparkling white wine
- Fresh sage leaves
- To make the simple syrup, combine the sugar and water over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to simmer and the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in the sage and cook for 30 more seconds. Then, remove the saucepan from the heat and set it aside to cool. Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, remove and discard the sage. Transfer the simple syrup to a clean re-sealable container and store it in your refrigerator until you are ready to use it.
- Now, let’s make the cocktails. For a single cocktail, vigorously shake 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) grapefruit juice, 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) of the sage simple syrup and 2-3 dashes of bitters in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass with fresh ice. Top with about 1/2 cup of champagne. Garnish with fresh sage leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.
Lemon and Rosemary Gin & Tonic
If you’re like me, your favorite cocktail involves Hendricks Gin and tonic water. The best part? This recipe is ultra simple. Just add a shot (or two) of gin to your shaker, add your preferred amount of tonic water with some ice and a lemon slice and shake, shake, shake. Pour the concoction into a glass, add the sprig of rosemary, and voilà.
Want something with a little less of those pesky calories? Substitute tonic water for soda water!

Having the girls over Saturday afternoon? This pitcher is a favorite for those who love lemonade. The little hint of coconut makes it just the right amount of exotic.
For the Pitcher:
- 4 cups coconut water, unsweetened
- 2 1/2 cups vodka

For the Simple Syrup:
