  1. These sound so good and look so refreshing I would like to try them all! Also wanted to say how much I love your header picture on the blog, i want to be beside the water in that picture with your recipes right now. !

  2. Best time to drink such cocktails. Today would be a nice day out here because the weather is perfect for a cocktail followed by a frozen treat like yogurt or ice cream its too hot for ice milks.

  3. that electric drink makes me think that i’m drinking mouthwash 🙂 i do love a midori sour. one drink that would be good is sweet tea vodka lemonade. deep eddy sweet tea vodka mixed with lemonade in a 1:1 ratio. an alcoholic arnold palmer.
