Refreshing Summer Cocktail and Mocktail Recipes

Refreshing Summer Cocktail and Mocktail Recipes

Cocktails are delicious all year round, but there’s nothing better on a hot summer day than sitting on your back porch sipping on an ice-cold, refreshing drink. Especially if said drink is made with some of the most aromatic, flavorful, and eye-catching fruits, vegetables, and herbs of the season.

Whether booze-filled or booze-free, summer drinks are some of my favorites, and I don’t think I’m alone. That’s why I’m sharing some of the season’s most refreshing cocktail and mocktail recipes from fellow RDs and food bloggers. Cheers to the start of summer!
