12 Summer Drink and Cocktail Recipes

I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

I spent the day cooking up yummy food and watching movies. A much needed day of laziness, indeed! I love being able to sleep in. Sleeping in might just be the best thing ever.

Since I’m still feeling all nice and lazy, instead of giving you a new recipe today, I am sharing my top 12 favorite drinks that will help you cool down this summer! One thing is very clear from this list. I love strawberries. A lot. But, I mean, who doesn’t?! And they are just so perfect and juicy this time of year.

The first 6 are non-alcoholic and are perfect for the whole family! And really, a lot of these can easily become alcoholic or non-alcoholic if you want them to. I’m all about the versatility, my friends!
