Each month, Chilled is bringing you five essential cocktails based on our National Drink Day Calendar.

Don’t forget to reference it so you can prepare for the upcoming holidays.

It’s officially that time of year where we’re taking evening strolls, opening up our windows, and relaxing outside, enjoying the start of the spring weather. Therefore, you will need a cocktail or two in tow.

Here are five essential cocktails you need to try this April.

April 28 is National Stop Food Waste Day and the perfect way to enjoy the day is with a “scrap” cocktail! We are all becoming more conscious of the world around us and instead of throwing away kitchen scraps, try using them in your cocktails.
