We know we’ve still got like 24 days left until it’s “official” (yeah, yeah, yeah…), but to us Memorial Day has always marked the start of summer. So to celebrate this three-day weekend and kick off the sunny season, we thought we’d share a summery cocktail-focused shoot from Marie Buck Photography, GATHER Events, and mixologists extraordinaire, The Whaling Club. Prepare yourself for nautical accents and a cocktail menu full of fresh ingredients like blood oranges, blackberries, pineapple, and mint. Bottoms up, everyone!

Will you get a load of those Moon Canyon florals? They just scream summer!

Dan from The Whaling Club says, The “Sinker” highlights one of my personal favorite combinations, Scotch and pineapple, while the “Bowline” uses Jamaican rum to add a subtle hint of The Islands to your classic rye Old Fashioned. Of course no whiskey bar would be complete without a sampling of America’s greatest offering, bourbon. Drink it neat or on a single hand-cut rock.

  1. Absolutely love that understated wreath with oranges and a circular frame!! This looks like one yummy party.

  2. obviously like your website but you need to test the spelling on quite
    a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome
    to inform the truth however I’ll certainly come again again.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this post, but I am missing something or are there no links to the actual recipes for all these lovely drinks? I would love to try making some of them if the recipes are available or was this a purely inspiration shoot?

    Thanks!

  4. don’t worry about comments above, its not about the spelling its all about the photography and you have done a great job, well done I love the set of images you have shown.

  5. Hey! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone!

    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Keep up the great work!
