Last summer, we got a little fixated on summer cocktails on The Recipe site.

One of our favorites was the Merci Bouquet from Raleigh’s bu.ku restaurant with elderflower liqueur, peach bitters, Cava wine, ginger beer and candied ginger. It’s a perfect drink for a hot, humid day: light, sparkling, refreshing.
