Dear August in the South:  I love you.   Except when you make me feel like I’ve just taken a shower. But it’s not a shower. It’s dripping sweat the minute I walk out my front door. I hate your humidity and the only way I can combat it is by holing up inside my house with the A/C bill creeping up to an absurd amount very month. I could really do without that. So I’ve decided to deal with the heat by making some refreshing cocktails. It doesn’t get much better than sitting on my back porch with a drink after the kids have gone to bed.  I’ve got 25 refreshing cocktail recipes for you to choose from if you are suffering from a southern summer heatwave (or even if you aren’t). There are a few mocktails in here too for those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks.

Check out all these delicious cocktail recipes! I can't wait to make them for my next party!
