Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a Summertime Sunshine cocktail. While most of America is getting covered in snow, rain, and everything in between, someone somewhere is enjoying one of these cocktails in the sun. While we are extremely jealous of this person, we're also excited for when that time comes for us. All it takes is a little rum, Campari, Lillet, Batavia Arrack, Cointreau, lime juice, rhubarb bitters, ginger beer, and basil. Click here for the recipe.

This Easy Corona Cocktail Might Be Our Favorite TikTok Trend to Date

Most of us haven’t been to a bar in a while, so we’ve gotten pretty creative with our mixology over the past year. We’ve taken tips from some of our favorite celebrity chefs, like Ina Garten and her giant quarantine Cosmo and Stanley Tucci with his shaken negronis, and we even invented a bunch of Costco cocktails based on what you can buy at the warehouse store, but the latest place we’ve been turning to for the best bartending tips and cocktail recipes is TikTok. The drink we’ve been seeing pop up again and again on our For You Page is the Corona Sunrise, an easy beer cocktail we can’t wait to sip on this summer. But why wait? This drink is so easy to make, you might as well try it now.

Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you&rsquoll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

This is a beer cocktail, but what makes it truly convenient is that it’s mixed right in the bottle, no fancy cocktail shakers needed. And after a year of doing dishes seemingly 24 hours a day, it’s definitely refreshing to see a drink that’s made in its own container, creating no extra messes.

To make the drink, you’ll need a bottle of Corona Extra (or Corona Light, if that’s your jam), some silver tequila, orange juice, and grenadine. You even get to drink a little while making the cocktail, which is a win in our book.

First, drink the Corona until the beer just reaches the top of the label. That will give you room to add your other ingredients.

Next up, add a splash of silver tequila. Since there are so few ingredients in this drink, we recommend using a tequila you won’t mind sipping on – we love the tequila blanco from women-owned brand Próspero Tequila. Just don’t add too much to your bottle, or you won’t have room for the other ingredients.

Add in a splash of orange juice, followed by a splash of grenadine, then use your finger to stop up the mouth of the bottle and tip it back and forth a few times to mix your cocktail without actually shaking it, which could cause the carbonation to go haywire and end up making your drink fizz up and out of the bottle .

That’s all! You now have a Corona Sunrise cocktail to sip on. It sounds like the most refreshing possible drink to have on hand once the weather gets warmer, and we can definitely see ourselves making them for our summer barbecues, pool parties, camping trips, or hot days on the couch when we can’t move away from the fan. Thanks for the tip, TikTok!

10 Pitcher Perfect Cocktails for Summer

For parties and get-togethers (or really, just something more than you drinking alone), stirring up single cocktails isn&apost practical. Especially not when there&aposs a way easier way to serve a crowd than mixing and muddling to order. Blood, sweat, and tears should never be part of your ideal summer cocktail, OK? Instead, grab a giant pitcher, your booze of choice, a few other high-quality ingredients. And in no time at all, you&aposll be well on your way to doling out envy-inducing cocktails that require 3 simple steps: dump, stir, and pour. Hello, summer.

The ultimate summer drank--the margarita--gets some fizzy flair with the addition of soda water. Not only does this add a refreshing bubbly touch, it stretches your tequila a bit farther. Never a bad thing when you&aposre hydrating a group of thirsty people in the dead of summer heat. Fill the pitcher with plenty of freshly sliced limes for an added boost of bright citrus. For a frozen version, simply blend the marg mixture with ice until smooth.
