Summer is here! Tis the season for hot days and cool drinks...am I right?! I'm a creature of habit when it comes to my drinks. And by creature of habit, I mean I drink water, coffee and beer. That's pretty much it. But if there is one time of year when I crave something a little different to sip on, it's summer.
How fitting that the theme of this month's Recipe Redux challenge was "Cocktails and Mocktails for May Celebrations." May (and the rest of summer, really) is a time for graduation parties, baby showers and bbqs. It's the perfect time to taste test a new drink.
In case you're stuck in a drink rut just like me, I picked a few tasty cocktails and mocktails to get you started. Take a look and add a few to your summer beverage bucket list.
