Memorial Day Weekend will be here before you know it. The sun is shining, the pool is calling — now all that’s missing is a summer-y drink in-hand! It’s the perfect time to add some new fruity drinks to your repertoire, since we all know how easy it is to get stuck in a rosé rut (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

We asked our West Elm store teams across the country to share their favorite crowd-pleasing summer cocktail recipes, and boy did they deliver! Make a batch for your next get-together and keep the good times going and good drinks flowing all summer long.
