When warm weather hits, swap your traditional margarita for this unique variation. A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, this prickly pear margarita from My Millennial Kitchen uses just five ingredients. Enjoy it alongside one of these delicious Mexican dishes.

This lavender punch from Sugar and Charm is almost too pretty to drink. But it tastes just as good as it looks, with fragrant lavender, butterfly pea flower and zesty lime juice. Bonus: Just like our big-batch cocktails, it’s easy to whip up for a crowd.

Warning: With a drink as delicious as this spritz from The Seasoned Mom, you may never want to make another cocktail again. The best part is that it only takes three ingredients—Prosecco, pink lemonade and club soda. And while you can always use store-bought pink lemonade, you can also make your own fresh-squeezed version with this recipe.
LAUREN GRANT FOR TASTE OF HOME
Rhubarb in a cocktail? Yes, it’s a thing and yes, it’s even better than you might think. In her twist on a gin fizz, Zestful Kitchen blogger Lauren Grant makes sure the rhubarb syrup is tart yet sweet and the egg whites add a full-bodied richness.

Taco Tuesday (or any day for that matter) calls for a pitcher of fruity sangria. This sangria recipe from Hunger Thirst Play has fresh strawberries, rhubarb simple syrup and peach schnapps, so it’s perfect for spring. Craving sangria now? Here are some of our favorite recipes to whip up ASAP.
There are regular mimosas and then there are rosé grapefruit mimosas, like these from Mindful Avocado. Not only does the grapefruit balance out the sweetness of the sparkling rosé, the blend of the two drinks turns your bubbly beverage the prettiest blush hue.
Inspired by the beautiful blooms outside, this delicate cocktail is essentially spring in a glass. Sugar and Cloth makes it with a whimsical blend of rose water, St. Germain elderflower liqueur and homemade edible flower ice cubes. The garnish on each glass? A stunning swirl of lemon rind.

You’ve had tons of Moscow mule variations, but this strawberry lime mule is arguably the best for spring. Platings & Pairings makes this drink with basic mule ingredients (vodka, ginger beer, lime juice and plenty of ice), then tosses in a bunch of fresh sliced strawberries for extra fruity flavor.
