When it gets this hot, sometimes a simple G&T or a frosty beer just isn’t enough. Fortunately, we’ve been amping up our cocktail repertoire all summer. Here are our seven favorite new-school summer cocktails.
1. Avocado Margarita
A tequila-heavy margarita is always refreshing, but even more so with a fresh avocado mixed in, a la this cocktail from Kim Haasarud’s 101 Mojitos and other Muddled Drinks.

2. The New Moscow Mule
We’re big fans of this ginger beer-based cocktail, but guess what’s even better? Ginger, and beer. Brennan Adams, the beverage director at El Centro, D.F. in Washington, D.C., makes this new take on the Mule, mixing ginger-chili simple syrup with vodka and lager.
