Put a Filter on It: Cocktails al Fresco

June  6, 2014

It's no secret -- we love a good 'gram. Here, we'll be posting our favorite Instagrams from the food world, on a different theme each week. We're getting inspired by our friends at brottle, who are sharing the beauty of batched, bottled cocktails with the world. Drink up.

As with most things in life, drinking is more fun outdoors. Ice-cold cocktails are preternaturally disposed to taste best paired with warm sun and cool breezes, preferably with sand or soft grass underneath your toes. When you're sipping on a cocktail outdoors, the bubbles are more bubbly, the lemon is more tart -- even the straws are somehow even more of a luxury. You can't help but sigh with content and wish you could capture this moment forever.

Thankfully, your cocktails al fresco can live on -- on Instagram. Just remember, don't drink alone (or if you do, at least make sure to share a photo with us). 

We want your 'grams! Follow us, then tag your outdoor cocktail hour with #F52grams -- we'll repost our favorites.
