One of the Inner Harbor's seafood institutions with the greatest waterviews in the city, the Rusty Scupper, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in business. The War of 1812 bicentennial also begins this summer, so the folks at the Scupper decided to give its looming neighbor, Federal Hill, its own drink: the Federal Hill Martini. A blend of VeeV Acai, Chambord and sour mix with a splash of Sprite, the cocktail is essentially a margarita served in a martini glass (it's also available over ice and with salt, natch)

For 34 years, Brass Balls Saloon has been a go-to location on Ocean City 's boardwalk, providing live entertainment daily and a whole lot of hilarious "balls"-related puns. To no one's surprise, and much to my 13-year-old's sense of humor's delight, the cocktail menu is no different. While widely known for introducing the Rum Runner to the Mid-Atlantic via Key West, Fla., alongside nearby Seacrets , Brass Balls Saloon's vast party cocktail menu doesn't disappoint with its summery blends.

I'm done with Winter. Cold snaps, arctic this and freezing that. I need something to remind me of warmer times and only a Margarita will do. Tart, sweet, tequila ... bring me to that place so I don't have to pay attention to the fact that I'm wearing three layers of underwear to keep me from freezing. Blue Agave, it's your time to shine. And shine it does with the decidedly unseasonable Raspberry Margarita. Made with a base of house-made sour mix, which is heavier on the sour than the sweet, this cocktail brings just the right combination of everything required to make a Marg great - with the added bonus of pineapple- and vanilla-bean-infused Espolon Blanco tequila and big chunks of muddled raspberry.

Not gonna lie, not even going to try and fib: I'm somewhat obsessed with layered drinks. There's just something magical about seeing layers of colors representing flavors in a glass, begging for the option of preservation throughout the cocktail experience - or total layer devastation with the flick of a straw. If layers are your thing, then I've discovered another option worthy of your attention at one Rivserside eatery known as Home Slyce. Bartender Ricardo Vargas is always noodling around with little cocktail creations, but finally decided to go whole hog with creating a cocktail of his own to fit his personality.

Jennifer Trainer Thompson first encountered the charms of Caribbean cocktails several years ago when a boat she was helping deliver broke a mast and marooned the crew on a tiny Bahamian island. The place had little to recommend it except a beach and a thatched-roof, dirt-floor bar that served "glorious rum punches." After a few days, repairs were completed and the crew pressed on. But Thompson never lost her fascination with "boat drinks," as Jimmy Buffett calls them - or, in Thompson's words, "frothy, pastel-colored cocktails with big flavor and often big alcohol."

Can a Margarita be seasonal without being summery? It seems by its very nature to be a warm-weather drink. Lip-smacking tart, heavy on the booze with or without a salted rim, the Margarita conjures beachfront images of fun and sunsets in far-flung locations. But the folks at Canton's Tavern on the Square are trying to flip that script and make a fall version of the time-honored cocktail: the Apple Cider Margarita. I know, I know. It seems like a reach. The sour mix is still there, as is, of course, Patron Resposado.

If the Black Eyed Susan were a race horse, it would be a sprinter. It makes one strong move, then fades quickly. The strong move occurs this weekend when the cocktail will be in demand at Pamlico Race Track, during both the running of the Black Eyed Susan Stakes on Friday and the Preakness Stakes on Saturday. Over these two days, about 25,000 servings of the libation, poured into commemorative glasses, will be sold at track officials say. But as soon as Preakness weekend ends, so does the does the local thirst for the Susan.

Hamlandia (noun): Where Baltimore relishes in the weird; the kitschy, eccentric home of Hons, hipsters and … really fricking good food and beverage. That last part a more recent development in the storied history of North Baltimore's Hampden. There are endless reasons to heart Hampden (including that silent p), but in the past few years, its cocktail culture has really stepped up. And you can add in the new craft beer and pizza spot, Birroteca, and their homage to their own neighborhood, The Hamlandia Sour.

I'm a sucker for Baltimore-themed cocktails. I'm compelled to order them, in fact, no matter how unusual, random or potentially deadly they may turn out to be. So obviously, when I spotted Boyle's Baltimore Water on the menu at the Chasseur in Canton, I had to give it a go. And? Well, who knew a drink lovingly named after the infamy of our Mobtown tap water could taste so delicious? Bar manager Michael Zabora takes a rather cheeky approach to paying homage to our fair city.

It's a hot summer Saturday and you're standing in a packed club, parched and sweaty, in a bar line three rows deep. Sick of waiting for a cool one, you muscle your way up to the front, flag down the bartender with a fistful of cash, and realize you have no idea what you want. It has to be liquor. It has to taste yummy. And it has to be ice cold but look red hot. Do you ask for the drink list and wait 15 more minutes for refreshment? No, you need it now! You panic and order a Red Bull and vodka.
