Memorial Day (May 27th) is fast approaching on May 27th, marking the unofficial start of the summer season. This relaxing weekend is typically spent with family and friends, soaking up the sun and celebrating longer days ahead.
For those people that are hosting a gathering, it's imperative to have beverages on deck for guests to enjoy alongside backyard barbecuing and outdoor festivities. To celebrate the start of summer, here are three refreshing cocktails that are easy to create and fun to sip. The recipes, courtesy of Sagamore Distillery, offer a variety of flavors and styles, ensuring that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Two of the recipes are batchable to make for your whole group.

The perfect warm-weather refresh, made with fresh strawberries and lemonade
1 bottle Sagamore Rye Whiskey

Fresh Mint for Garnish
Method: Combine Sagamore 93 Small Batch Rye, lemon juice, and strawberry simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake to combine. Pour into highball glass. Garnish with lemon wheel, strawberry and serve.
