If snowstorm after snowstorm is giving you the winter blues, get excited for this annual milestone. While it may seem like the Hamptons beach season is still incredibly far away, on Thursday, March 12th it's officially 100 days until summer. We think that's definitely a reason to raise a glass and toast, so here are six tropical cocktails to enjoy as you wait for warm weather to finally arrive.
