However, let’s not get too loose. While no one will blame you for the occasional piña colada (they’re delicious, and anyone who says otherwise is compensating for something), there’s also no denying that a man who can work a shaker carries way more authority than a schlub pushing buttons on a blender. And with your calves on full display from now till August, you’ll need as much help as you can get in the authority department. That’s why we tapped three expert mixologists for top-tier recipes involving top-shelf spirits. So instead of stocking up on flavored Bacardi, take stock of what’s left in your liquor cabinet: It’s all fair game this summer, so start practicing.
