20 Fresh and Delicious Summer Cocktails

Since it’s officially summer, I thought I’d share some fresh and delicious summer cocktail recipes that you can make for your friends and family. The list below has been curated from some of the best blogs on the web. Some recipes are new and others have been around for a while. Either way, they’re all easy to make, fresh and delicious! These are all the fruity type (my favorite). I personally prefer to not taste any alcohol in my drinks. My family laughs at me for this. You can always adjust the recipes to make them to suit your preferences.

I’m not a big drinker but I like to be able to mix up a pretty cocktail when I have an event at my house or when I have people over to enjoy the pool on a hot summer day. These would be perfect for the 4th of July too. We usually have appetizers, grill out and enjoy pretty drinks followed by viewing fireworks. These recipes would also be great for mixing up a big batch for a themed party. I recommend using inexpensive clear glassware for serving since the cocktails are all so pretty.

    I’d be happy with anything icy cold and containing plenty of vodka or rum. Heh! Heh!
