Elderflower Sparklers (Hyldeblomst Cocktails)

The elder tree's white blossoms first appear in spring in Denmark, so these refreshing cocktails make an elegant homage to the season. The delicate, lightly floral flavors are perfect with Champagne or a dry, light white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc. Have all the ingredients ice-cold before serving.

Strawberry-Coconut Daiquiri

You'll feel like you're on a tropical getaway with this refreshing strawberry-coconut cocktail. To keep it cool in warmer weather, freeze fresh berries for 30 minutes before blending. Variation: For a nonalcoholic version, omit the rum and add 1/2 cup additional strawberries.

Rosemary-Infused Cucumber Lemonade

Stay cool and healthy with these whimsical chilled drink recipes!

Drink to your health in more ways than one with these pleasing potions. They’re loaded with antioxidant-rich ingredients, such as watermelon, green tea, coffee, blueberries and grapefruit. And one recent study suggests that adding alcohol to fruit may increase its antioxidant power. But if you prefer to drink a virgin cocktail, we’ve given nonalcoholic “mocktail” versions for some of these recipes, so either way: cheers!
