12 Perfect Summer Cocktails


We’ve finally made it! After months of sweaters, snow, and dry skin, it’s summer! I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts of summer is all of the tasty in-season produce. No more sad, pale tomatoes. Forget about those grapes grown a continent away, or the flavorless strawberries grown in giant greenhouses. Fresh, local, seasonal produce is here, and it’s time to make the most of it while we can. So why not let those ingredients shine in a refreshing cocktail? Click through to check out some great ideas for summer cocktails. Have your own favorite? Tell us about it in the comments.

Why does everything have alcohol in it? I can't have it. Guess I'll keep mixing my own summer drinks. ;o)
