The 20 best soda cocktails for summer
My love of spirits began with soda.

It helped introduce my palate to the idea of booze while still imparting its own flavor to the drink. And decades later, soda is still a quick, unpretentious and cheap way to add fizz and sweetness to any cocktail.

To honor its endless utility, today we present the 20 best soda cocktails.

Half are classics, half are new concoctions from our favorite bartending friends.

All of them pair well with short sleeves and warm weather.
