1. Crafthouse Cocktails- These handcrafted cocktails from Chicago mixology star Charles Joly are fantastic to enjoy in your own home. All you have to do is open the bottle, pour over ice and enjoy with friends.


  2. Skinny Girl- Enjoy one of the many Skinnygirl cocktails without the extra calories you don’t want. Seriously though, there are a lot of options. Margarita, Pina Colada, Sangria, Cranberry Cosmo, Peach Margarita, Grapefruit Margarita... do we need to keep going?


  3. Soleil Mimosa- If you're heading to the beach, a beach that doesn't restrict alcohol that is, then this is all you'll need. It's sweet, refreshing and easy to share with friends.


  4. Fluid Dynamics- It seems expensive, but then you realize you're getting two bottled cocktails made by the most artisan craft distillery and the finest mixologists in the country.
