We love spring because warm.

We love warm because outside.

We love outside because everything is better there, including that drink in your hand.

You’ll find that drink — nine of them, in fact — in our Spring Cocktail Quarterly, otherwise known as the I’ll-be-taking-the-next-five-Fridays-off edition.

These are spring drinks. What’s a spring drink? A drink you wouldn’t drink in December.

Fruiting the booze? Now permissible. Obnoxiously large drinking vessel? Fits more ice. Toothpick umbrellas? Halt. A man’s gotta draw the line somewhere.

Plus: a nuts-and-bolts guide to glassware, courtesy of our friend Joaquín Simó at Pouring Ribbons NYC. Martinis go in martini glasses and Tom Collinses go in Tom Collins glasses for a reason. You should know that reason.

Because knowledge equals social currency.

So too the ability to mix a proper adult beverage.

Here’s your textbook. Get to studying.
