The hottest days of summer are here, and the best way to cool off, is to sip on a summer cocktail and wait for the sun to set. In honor of those days you feel like you need to shower every hour, on the hour, we’ve got another group of new, summertime drinks to make you forget that you’ve sweated through your favorite shirt.
Its a Prohibition-era favorite.
The Negroni, a gin-based cocktail has been making its way back into the hearts of the gin lovers and gin-fearing drinkers alike. Brabo‘s take on the classic drink includes Plymouth Gin, Campari and Carpano Antica Vermouth. The Negroni is being served as part of Brabo’s Summer of Gin, which includes ten gin cocktails on the menu and a regular rotation of gin punches served Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. until close. / Brabo by Robert Weidmaier, 1600 King St., Alexandria.
It has interesting ice-cubes.
Stone’s Cove Kitbar is known for its many martinis, but this drink takes a happy house favorite and mixes it up with a summertime produce, pureed, squeezed and then frozen into ice cubes. The Blueberry Bourbon Sour has Makers Mark, lemon syrup, soda and blueberry ice cubes. / Stone’s Cove Kitbar, 2403 Centreville Road, Herndon.
Its Tiki Time.

If it sounds fancy, it’s because it is.Todd made it. / Society Fair, 277 S. Washington St., Alexandria.
Its David’s Hard Lemonade, not Mike’s.
