Follow these recipes and 
tips from bartender Caitlin Doonan and chef Ken Oringer of Toro in Boston and NYC.

2 cherries (pitted)

2 blackberries

2 oz. vodka

1/2 oz. lemon juice

1/4 oz. simple syrup

Splash of soda water

Muddle cherries and blackberries. Add vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake with ice and strain over a glass with new ice. Top with soda water and garnish with a blackberry.

Burger

To give your burger extra
favor, add soy sauce to the
meat and blend before
grilling,” says Ken. Another
idea? “If you’re tired of your
regular toppings, try
barbecuing them. Charred onions get sweet when they caramelize on the grill, and make for a great addition.” Finally, forget plain ketchup! “Mix it with mustard and hot sauce for a tangy kick.”

Tank top

Try a pair of denim shorts and a tank, accented with delicate jewelry. Flats are ideal for frolicking on the grass.
