Spirited ways to toast to summer

Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start to summer, as if you need an excuse to toast with tiny umbrellas. Bars and restaurants across the country are ready for the season with refreshing libations, tiki mugs, many margaritas, carafes of sangria, pitchers of punch and every spin on the spritz. There's a hibiscus flower or fruit infusion to pair with your favorite spirit somewhere. Browse the photos above to crave pineapple, citrus, watermelon and all your favorite flavors frozen. Plus, find a few seasonal wine alternatives below.
