Welcome to Summer

Where to get drinks this summer


Know what makes a fine summer day even better? The answer should be obvious: a great drink. No matter how you like your alcohol served to you, Lansing has a ton of spots for you to check out this summer. We’re going to break the drinks down by style and provide you a list of where to find them. 


A great margarita is a no-brainer for summer. Ice-cold tequila prepared with a wide variety of fruit flavors is a great way to cool off and still catch a pleasant buzz.
