Summer Cocktails at Skylight
Sun Jun. 21st 2015

It's finally here! The time of year when Santa Fe bursts to life with music, dance, film, art shows, thunderstorms and long, hot days turning into a flurry of colorful nights. We’ve patiently sipped our toddies by the fire all winter long…and now it’s time to peel back the layers and revel in all our city has to offer. Serious fun can make party people thirsty, but don’t fret. I’ve mapped out where to find the most summer-licious libations in town, ranging from respectfully mixology-focused to silly fun sippers to suit your summer fancies.

SKYLIGHT (139 W San Francisco St., 982-0775) In the mood for a comedy show? House music? Flamenco? Swing dancing? Basically, imagine any form of entertainment, and it will probably happen this summer, inside this two-level party house. Fun is finally coming back to bartending, worldwide, and the Skylight’s namesake signature cocktail is a tribute to our turquoise skies, with its zany blend of vodka, orange juice, a float of tequila and blue curaçao.
