Summer Sips

Memorial Day has come and gone, but we are just getting started on our countless barbecues, beach days, picnics, and outdoor parties that are the quintessential mark of Summer. With all of these entertaining moments that lay ahead, it’s imperative to have a stash of go-to cocktail recipes, and cocktail glasses, for whenever you find yourself playing host.
These drinks are simple and easy without any obscure ingredients. On a hot summers day when you may have unexpected guests, the last thing you want is having to play bartender the whole time with a pile of complicated ingredients. The most difficult thing is simple syrup which is, we’ll, simple to make. The drinks can be scaled to make enough for a party just double or even quadruple if you are having a Fourth of July bash! The alcohol can be omitted to make thirst-quenching drinks for the kiddies. People maybe will be popping over more often once they taste one of these sinful and simple Summer sips!
