Summer is finally here! We love a good day at the beach or backyard cookout, but sometimes it can be hard to cool off after too much fun in the sun. That's where a nice cold beverage can be indispensable. While there are endless options ranging from pre-made drinks to age-old recipes for lemonade and other classic concoctions, you know we have to take things up a notch. That's why we have compiled a list of some of our favorite resplendent refreshments from our blog. There's something for everyone: cocktails, soft drinks, and even iced coffee in case you need help staying awake to enjoy the long days while they last. Whatever your proverbial poison, you're sure to enjoy these summer drink recipes!
