As we dive into the next few months of sunshine and opportunity to lounge by the 60-foot lap pool at NEMA San Francisco, we’re celebrating the summer season with a few recipes to pair with your poolside view. Craft those cocktails on your Quartz countertops and head to the third floor. Cheers!

La Croix Cocktails. This fizzy fruit-infused water is healthy, refreshing and delicious, and all with no added chemicals.

Limoncello. Limoncello can range from very sweet to super tart and citrusy — as the maker of the limoncello, that’s something that you get to decide.

Best Bloody Mary. Bloody Marys are a favorite part of weekends. Creating your own Bloody Mary mix guarantees a fresh and flavorful mix.

Zombie: A potent mix of rum, citrus and island flavors adapted from Smuggler's Cove’s Zombie. You can pick up premade cocktails starting in June!

Watermelon Mule. Give your standard mule a summery kick in the glass with the addition of fresh, muddled watermelon.

Mix Up Your Mimosa. Get inspired by these delicious recipes for making mimosas.

San Francisco Cocktail. One of the best sloe gin drinks you will find. Because it is heavier than the drier martinis, it is a great option for a dessert cocktail.

Fresca Cocktail. Fresca is back, and it’s absolutely not just your grandma’s drink anymore.

El Presidente. A twist on the classic El Presidente cocktail to give the drink fresh life.

Boozy Bourbon + Peach Summertime Smash. This mildly sweet summery sip is a snap to make.

Ginger Rogers. This refreshing highball mimics the flavors of gin, lime, mint, and ginger found at Absinthe. Want to grab a bite to eat before lounging by the pool? Make reservations here.

The third floor Urban Terrace, furnished with lounging areas and outdoor TVs, is NEMA’s private urban park, and features a lap pool with an environmentally friendly saline water treatment system, a large fire pit surrounded by cozy seating, and welcoming grassy areas. Toast to your life at NEMA!
