Will Wyatt, owner and beverage director of Mister Paradise cocktail bar in New York City, is joining TODAY to mix up a few of his favorite refreshing summer drinks. He shows us how to make a frosty frosé cocktail and a spicy mezcal margarita.

For this frosé, we are using a quite dry rose with high acid, so that we can balance behind it with sugar and other acids to give it that rich body that a great frozen drink should have.
