Cool Down with Easy, Breezy Summer Cocktails

With summer kicking into high gear, it means weekend trips to the beach, days consisting of only (responsible) sunbathing, bike rides on the boardwalk, head-to-toe white-hot styles, too many ice cream options and of course, no shortage of drinks to quench our thirst amidst the festivities. Whether you’re gazing at the ocean or hanging out poolside, nothing completes a summery state of relaxation quite like an ice-cold cocktail. Use these recipes to stir up some sippers that are perfect crowd pleasers.
