We know spring is here, but do your beverages?

If you're looking for some sun-spiration for your mixed drinks, look no further than inside Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails, the all-season cocktail book by Eric Prum & Josh Williams.

It won't take much page turning to find a concoction that will give your taste buds a reminder that it's time to go outside and enjoy the sun.

We tried our hand at one of their classic spring cocktails and have to admit that it simply would be a disservice if we didn't share with you guys as well.
