20+ Refreshing Summer Cocktails
It’s been a hot summer for us here in Missouri. As a result, we’ve been enjoying a BBC Frozen Drink every now and again. Tell me, at the end of a hot summer day, what do you reach for to cool you off? Ice Cream? Diet Coke? Or maybe a refreshing summer cocktail? If the latter is your choice, today’s post is for you.
A refreshing cocktail or two is a great way to cool off. Ready to break out the shaker and mix things up?
From margaritas to martinis, you’re sure to find a refreshing beverage to enjoy this summer. Honestly, I’m not much of a drinker.
“You can’t buy happiness,
but you can prepare a cocktail.
And that’s kind of the same thing.”
Occasionally I’ll have a drink — and a favorite of mine is the amaretto sour (number eighteen). A friend of mine introduced to me the amaretto sour several years ago — it’s sweet, sour and delicious. In short, it’s a perfect patio drink.
The Long Island Ice Tea (number thirteen) is a beverage I consider to be a little dangerous (especially if you’re a lightweight). You don’t taste the alcohol, so you drink it like an ice tea. Haha. I think I’ve had one or two of them and have avoided them ever since. Yes, I’m a lightweight.
Nevertheless, if you give any of the refreshing summer cocktails a try, let me know what you think. Enjoy.
