Summer Sips

With the summer heat finally catching up to us I hope everyone has been finding ways to stay cool. My personal favorite way to beat the heat at the end of the day is to stir up some delicious and refreshing cocktails for a night with my friends. I don’t know about you, but to me nothing says summer quite like a night on the porch with a sweet margarita, surrounded by friends sharing stories from a long year away at school.

These are the top 5 favorites (selected by my voting committee of friends) to sip on. They are all simple and quick to make, and don’t require any crazy ingredients or a trip to the nearest party store. Most likely you can find all of these ingredients already in your house! (Especially if you have a family like mine that is constantly experimenting with new recipes and ideas).

If you like cucumber water you will LOVE this soothing mojito.
This pretty-in-pink watermelon cocktail is the perfect way to end your day (or start your night!)
This island-inspired cocktail will leave you feeling beachy! Super simple to make.
To give this summer sip a little extra fizz, top it off with a little champagne!
This one is delicious…and dangerous! Sip with caution…
What are some of your favorite summertime refreshments? 
Stay cool, everyone!
