My Favorite Summertime Cocktails

I would be lying if I said, I don’t enjoy a cocktail or two! Especially now with the warmer temps. Nothing like a cool refreshing cocktail on the porch or with friends while grilling some burgers. It’s what the summers is all about for us adults.

In the spirit of summer, friends, family and the fourth of July, here are 3 of my favorite summertime cocktails. Wish the calorie content was under 100 calories, but let’s face it, under 200 calories and keeping in mind the rule of “everything in moderation” should keep you in line! Drink responsibly! LOL
