Lemon Mezcal Margarita
Say hello to summer's new go-to drink. Instead of the traditional lime juice used in a margarita, we went with lemon juice to soften the smokiness of the mezcal. It's light and refreshing enough for a pool party but has a little edge thanks to its salt and pepper rim.
Iced Passion-Fruit Green Tea
Drinks that quench the whole crowd, kids included, are a hot commodity on a summer day. This fruity, iced green-tea is pretty enough to serve at a nice brunch or sip casually by the pool. It's also a cinch to make but allow at least two hours for chilling before serving.
Packed full of spice and sunshine, that's this tropical mango smoothie (pictured center). The golden color of the fruit is boosted by fresh turmeric, an inflammation-fighting superfood. The pinch of black pepper doesn't just add pep; it contains a compound, piperine, that helps the body absorb curcumin, the antioxidant found in turmeric.
