After hibernating all winter, summer is the time for New Yorkers to emerge from our 10ft by 10ft caves to enjoy some warm air and summer drinks. That means downing strong margaritas, pina coladas, rosé and frosé on sky-high rooftops, docked boats and in the city's best parks. So go ahead, lounge in one of the best parks in NYC, find a boozy thing to do outside or just camp out in a  New York bar to gulp down this year's summer drinks.
