These are a little bit stronger.

Up your brunch cocktail game with these fantastic green drinks.

1. Melon Sparkler with Tapioca Pearls 

Mixing honeydew juice with the fizzy Italian wine Moscato makes a super-refreshing cocktail. Melon balls and chewy tapioca pearls are fun to eat and cute to look at.

2. Cucumber Cocktail with Chamomile Tonic 

"A lot of cultures start meals with an aperitif or end with a digestif," says Jovial King. "Having a bitter drink before or after a meal is just a way to slow down, which is always great for digestion." Her chamomile tonic, with vodka and dandelion greens, is delicious in this refreshing, unsweetened cocktail.

3. Frozen Honeydew-Basil Margaritas

4. Emerald Palmers  

DAVE LAURIDSEN

5. Cilantro Cooler
