I love to entertain in the summer. My husband spent all spring really taking the time to fix up the yard and make it “guest ready” (as we kept calling it!). Believe me, with 5 kids… nobody’s coming IN my house, but outside – that’s a different story! I can do outside with guests!
We recently went to a friend’s house for a graduation party and she didn’t have just your typical wine and beer for everyone, she took the time and created 2 “summer cocktails” for everyone. I’m usually just a wine drinker, so this was different for me and I loved trying something new and sweet and yummy (with a dash of alcohol!).
It got me thinking about summer cocktails… what’s easy, what’s not, what I would want to serve and what would make someone leave my house wanting to make “that” they had drink — again!
Since I’m ALL about Pinterest, I went straight to the experts and found 9 Easy Summer Cocktail Recipes that I’m excited to try out and share with you guys. These bloggers who created these recipes… I bow down, I’m not nearly as cocktail-creative as you call! I love it and can’t wait to cheers with these incredible cocktails this summer.

4. I needed to be able to whip up in minutes
