Guava Sin

Scott Gerber

CEO, hospitality and nightlife firm Gerber Group


“During the hot summer months, I like to unwind with a tequila cocktail. I make a great Guava Sin with Casamigos Reposado. Adding fresh guava nectar and lime makes for a refreshing drink that’s a little more fun than a traditional margarita.”


Guava Sin

2 oz. Casamigos Reposado

1 oz. triple sec

1 oz. guava puree

1 oz. fresh sour mix


Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Add ice, shake, and strain into a highball glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.


Paul Trible

Co-founder and CEO, Ledbury shirt company


“My friend Brandon Peck, a bartender at the Roosevelt in Richmond, introduced me to this bourbon lemonade a few years ago. I’m based in the South, and the summers couldn’t be hotter. The lemonade helps you withstand the heat, while the bourbon helps you forget it.”


Bourbon Lemonade

1½ oz. Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey

2 oz. brown sugar



Serve over crushed ice and top with soda water for a little fizz. Garnish with basil.


Frank Carfaro

President and creative director, Desiron furniture company


“A Pimm’s Cup. My at-home modification is the addition of fresh strawberries, oranges, and cherries, with extra fresh mint. It’s light, refreshing, and fruity without veering to the extreme of mai tais and piña coladas. It’s the perfect brunch drink in lieu of mimosas.”


Pimm’s Cup

1 cup ice cubes

2 oz. Pimm’s No. 1

3 oz. ginger beer

1 cucumber slice

1 sprig fresh mint


Fill glass with ice. Add Pimm’s No. 1 and top with ginger beer. Garnish with cucumber and a mint sprig.


Dale Talde

Chef and co-owner of Brooklyn’s Talde, Pork Slope, Thistle Hill Tavern


“I love a margarita with Sauza Blanco Tequila. It quenches your thirst, is super easy to make at home, and is always reliable. At Talde, we always have a seasonal margarita on the menu. For the summer it’s a watermelon margarita made with fresh watermelon puree.”


Watermelon Margarita

2 oz. tequila

6 oz. pureed watermelon

1 oz. fresh lime juice

½ oz. agave nectar


Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker with ice and mix well. Strain into a glass. Salted edges optional.


Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima

Founders, MinaLima, the graphic design firm for the Harry Potter film franchise


“The Strawberry Smash is definitely our favorite cocktail, with the best kind of gin—Hendrick’s. It’s one to conjure up at home, when and if the sun comes out in London. Strawberries are traditional at Wimbledon, so what better way to celebrate Andy Murray’s brilliant win!”


Strawberry Smash

1½ oz. Hendrick’s Gin

1½ strawberries, sliced

¾ oz. fresh lemon juice

½ oz. simple syrup

7 fresh mint leaves


Muddle ingredients well, breaking up the strawberries. Add ice; shake ingredients with vigor. Strain over fresh ice into a double rocks glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.


Carly Zakin

Co-founder, online daily media newsletter theSkimm


“A La Paloma. It has tequila, ice, grapefruit soda, and some lime. One of my best friends ordered it at a restaurant once, and I had a sip and was amazed at how good it was. I love sitting outside and drinking it. It’s light but has the right amount of kick.”


La Paloma

1½ oz. tequila

Juice of half a lime

Grapefruit-flavored soda, preferably Squirt


Fill glass with ice. Add tequila, soda, and lime. Stir well.
