I don’t know about you, but I’ve become something of a cocktail connoisseur after all this lockdown because, really, there’s simply nothing better to do.

Of course, when I say connoisseur, I actually mean that I made several attempts in a highly amateur manner. Yet I’ve learned enough to confirm that the classics are easiest to master — classics like daiquiris, negronis and margaritas.

Check out these three recipes for perfect, picnic-friendly cocktails that are all class but also incredibly easy.
