Cocktails You’ll Want To Make This Summer

Sip on something satisfying this summer

This summer is supposed to be the hottest we’ve ever had on record. Just thinking of temperatures higher than 85 degrees has me sprawling for an ice cold drink, and I can’t be the only one. These tasty libations are 12 cocktails that you’ll want to make this summer.

Cocktails You'll Want To Make This Summer

 

These summer cocktails will keep you cool in the heat.

Living in coastal North Carolina comes with its pros and cons. The beach is just 15 minutes around the corner, but that means tourists will be hogging the seats down in local bars for the next three months. Great for the bars, but not so much for locals. So during summer, I often find myself enjoying a sip or two at home with friends and family around the firepit, instead of heading out to the club.

As soon as June rolls on in, it’s time to stock up your home bar with all the goodies for summer cookouts and pool parties. As a rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to keep Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, and Rum or Tequila always in stock. They are also your staples for the drinks we will be discussing below.
