There are few things more enjoyable on warm-weather days than delicious, refreshing and totally-too-pretty-to-look-at cocktails. Beautifully mimicking the soft pastel colors of the season, spring cocktails are great for outdoor parties, Mother’s Day soirees or simply ushering in the weekend. If you think that cocktail construction is too complicated for you, think again, because these sweet concoctions are a cinch to make.

Honey Citrus Cocktail

1. Honey Citrus Cocktail: From the soft color to the sweet ingredients, everything about this cocktail appears to be subtle. But once all the elements combine, you’ll realize that subtle never tasted so good. (via Sugar and Charm)

Vodka Lavender Lemonade

2. Vodka Lavender Lemonade: Lemonade is always one of the most refreshing things to drink on a warm day. It’s even better when you add some vodka and a little lavender to balance it out. (via The Effortless Chic)


3. Raspberry Mojito: Since this is the season for berries, why not add some to your regular ol’ mojito? It’s the perfect pretty sip for a balmy night. (via Hairspray and High Heels)

Lavender Lemonade

4. Lavender Lemonade: Not every cocktail has to contain alcohol to be memorable. In this case, a lavender lemonade mocktail is just as good. We also wouldn’t judge if you added a little vodka to the mix. (via Eat Yourself Skinny)


5. Melon Ball Punch: It’s hard to wrap your mind around actually drinking this festive, grown-up punch because it is so incredibly colorful. But once you taste this fruity-yet-potent cocktail, you’ll definitely want another round. (via Divas Can Cook)

6. The Shucks Deluxe: So. Peachy. Succulent, sweet peaches are the stars of this cocktail, while rosemary helps tone it down and add some herbal flavor to the mix. (via Verses From My Kitchen)

Lime and Rum Shooters

7. Lime & Coconut Rum Shooters: Lime + coconut + rum = the ultimate spring break sip. (via Loriann’s Food and Fam)

8. The Jade: If you are familiar with the color jade, then you at least know a little of what to expect from this smooth, cool cocktail. (via Food and Wine)

9. Peach Bellini Punch: Peach Bellinis are a brunch staple, so we think a giant punch bowl of this stuff is definitely in order for your next brunch. (via Kitchen Meets Girl)

Green Iced Tea

10. Green Iced Tea: The green tea, cucumber juice, ginger tea and lemon juice balance perfectly to create this tantalizing tequila cocktail. We’ll take two, please. (via Arizona Foothills Magazine)


11. Thai Basil Watermelon Margaritas: Watermelon, tequila and basil? Trust us, it is beyond refreshing and totally worth makings those cute little melon balls. (via Bob Vivant)
