Party in a pitcher — 06/02/22

John Fladd, Hippo’s cocktail columnist, gives you not one but five drink ideas this week (plus a few eats suggestions). The drinks are all good for a crowd (and he explains the mechanics of preparing a pitcher for your summer gatherings) but can also be made for one person enjoying a relaxing moment in the sun.

Also on the cover, meet makers specializing in all different forms of media at the annual NH Maker Fest in Dover, p. 17, crispy bacon and cold craft brews will take center stage during the NH Bacon & Beer Fest, returning to Merrimack this weekend, p. 25, and find live music every day of the week in our Music This Week listings, which start on page 34.
