7 Refreshing Warm Weather Cocktails
1. Skinny Piña Colada: Always a classic, but this time with fewer calories to make it a little easier to fit into your favorite swimsuit.
2. Classic Mint Julep: Channel your inner Daisy Buchanan and sip on a classic mint julep to ward off the heat in the most Gatsby-glam way.
3. Paloma: You’ve probably tried this for Cinco de Mayo, but any time is a good time for a fiesta with this light and citrusy concoction.
4. Grapefruit Rosemary Mule: Few things are as appropriate for warm weather as a grapefruit-infused cocktail. Add a little rosemary and you’re all set for a laid back afternoon.
5. St. Germain Margarita: Another festive find that will do just fine over summer.
6. Simple (but delicious!) Gin and Tonic: No fuss here. Just simple, classic, refreshing flavor.
7. Dark and Stormy: Don’t let afternoon thunderstorms get you down. Embrace them with a toast to the weather with a Dark and Stormy beverage.
