Where to Drink Summertime Cocktails in New York City

This summer, sip some of the best concoctions that New York has to offer. We’ve rounded up some of the city’s best new beverages that will have you living your best life all season long.
 
Tucked into the roof of the Freehand hotel, this new spot will become your summer mainstay. With four distinctly different areas within the space, it offers something different each and every time. Opt for The Smillie cocktail—blanco tequila with key lime and golden beet cordial, cilantro and ginger turmeric agave—for a modern and summery twist on a classic margarita. (23 Lexington Ave.; 212-475-1920)
 
Straylight offers a Japanese spin on countless cocktails. Hidden away inside a multi-level, multi-concept restaurants, this Mulberry Street spot reimagines basement bars. A multi-colored ceiling and moody wooden bar set the vibe, while World Class Winner Jamie Jones created the unrivaled cocktail menu. Try the Smoke of the Water with mezcal, passion fruit, pineapple and kombucha for a summery burst of fruit flavor, or Umeboshi Boulevard with rye, ume plum, Campari and sweet vermouth for a western take on far east flavors. (32 Mulberry St.; 646-590-2111)
 
The laid back and friendly vibes Until Tomorrow will draw you in immediately, along with the pizza place meets cocktail bar combo. Their cocktail menu touts a “dangerously drinkable” selection including the Viva Italia with meyer lemon vodka, lemon and grapefruit juices, peach liqueur, vermouth, and orange bitters for a citrusy punch. Or try  the We’re All Routing for You for a modern version of everyone’s favorite daiquiri. (507 Myrtle Ave.; 347-987-4181)
 
The Springs
This colorful, outdoor spot is Greenpoint’s best kept secret. The retro vibes will have you craving classic cocktails while you sit and soak up on the sun. Opt for the slushie versions of their classics, like the Aperol Seltzer, with aperol, sparkling wine and an orange slice, or the Sunburn with blanco tequila, aloe vera, curacao and lime. (224 Franklin St.; 347-227-7114)
