While we stand by our love and appreciation for happy hour and a smart evening cocktail (or two), there is something to be said about daytime drinking. It's quite nice to be able to enjoy a fancy, adult beverage while the sun is shining. However, there are certain cocktails that are more appropriate to enjoy during waking hours. From bubbly libations that won't knock you off your feet to stronger tipples that should probably be sipped slowly, here are 15 of our favorite daytime cocktails.
