With the unofficial start to summer—Memorial Day weekend—beginning in just a few hours, it’s not only time to change your wardrobe but also your cocktail routine.
So before you head out of town or get stuck manning the grill, watch our latest three How to Cocktail videos featuring all-star West Coast mixologist Erik Adkins. For years, he was behind the stick at San Francisco’s renowned The Slanted Door and is now running the bar program at brand-new waterfront spot Hard Water.

Looking for a refreshing elixir? Try the Gin Fizz. With its bracing lemon tartness and frothy egg-white head, this old-school gin concoction is tasty morning, noon or night.
If there’s any city that knows it’s warm-weather drinks, its New Orleans. And Adkins is a fan of this Big Easy favorite—an absinthe-spiked take on the Old Fashioned that works with either rye whiskey or cognac.
