As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


Los Angeles’ boutique Ace Hotel knows how to summer—usher in the season’s last remaining moments with the ticklingly sweet Surf City Spritz, mixed by Dan Sabo and Harry May Kline. The perfect companion for late nights on the beach or for hanging ten, this is a cocktail that screams cowabunga.
