Aside

Drinks of Summer

I already broke my streak of blogging everyday by skipping out yesterday! I may have been a little caught up in the awesome weather. The only thing I kept picturing in my mind and thinking about on that hot sunny day was drinks! Amazing, refreshing, unique, alcoholic drinks. So I decided to dedicate this post to just that. Below you’ll see delicious looking drinks pictured along with their ingredients that I have collected over time.

Enjoy! 🙂
