Barrelhouse: Watermelon Coolers

A staple of the Fondren gastropub, Barrelhouse's much-anticipated Watermelon Coolers are back. A concoction of watermelon vodka, fresh mint, simple syrup, lime, and ginger ale, we recommend pairing one with one of their shareable plates and good company. The restaurant posts specials on Instagram.

Fertile Ground: Summer Small Batch Beer

Ok, this one’s not a cocktail. But nothing screams summer like a cold brew from Belhaven's latest and greatest watering hole, Fertile Ground Brewery. Make sure to keep up with their rotating taps on Instagram, including hot weather selections like the Pineapple Sour.

La Cour Kitchen & Bar: Bicentennial Cocktail

Celebrate the city of Jackson's 200th birthday with sips from one of two official Bicentennial Cocktails at La Cour, and stick around for the French-inspired ambiance and live piano. "The Soul Stirrer" is a blend of Cathead Bitter Orange vodka and sparkling cranberry seltzer, and the "Bicentenni" goes down smooth with Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka and triple sec. Check their Instagram for the latest happenings.

Gold Coast Bar: Foster's Banana

Escape to the tropics without booking a plane ticket at Cultivation Food Hall's Gold Coast Bar, where the sip-worthy Foster's Banana shines on the limited-time summer cocktail menu. Think dark rum, banana liqueur, and a dash of cinnamon. See their Instagram for entertainment schedules and drink specials.
