Cocktails are delicious all year round, but there’s nothing better on a hot summer day than sitting on your back porch sipping on an ice-cold, refreshing drink. Especially if said drink is made with some of the most aromatic, flavorful, and eye-catching fruits, vegetables, and herbs of the season.

Whether booze-filled or booze-free, summer drinks are some of my favorites, and I don’t think I’m alone. That’s why I’m sharing over 40 of some of the season’s most refreshing cocktail and mocktail recipes from fellow RDs and food bloggers. Cheers to the start of summer!

    1. Thanks ea! That would be so much fun! We’ll have to make some of these the next time we’re at a blogger event together!

  1. What a great list! Pinned this one to my happy hour board. I know it’s not 5 o’clock yet but I’m thirsty 😉

  2. I need to give this list to my husband. He is always asking me to look up cocktail recipes for when we have guests over. Why not have him try making one of my peer’s recipes!! 🙂

  3. Great collection! I’ve updated my to-drink list. Have you come across any fun things for using lavender? I have a lavender plant now and want to do something creative with it.
