The best summer cocktails are always needed for a summer gathering or barbecue!
Summer brings in the fresh fruits and beautiful weather. We love enjoying an evening out on the deck, outdoor grilling, tailgating, and family gatherings in the summer. As adults, we love to enjoy a delicious adult drink while relaxing and having a good time with friends and family.
It's no secret that some of the best summer cocktails and boozy adult drink recipes are made with fresh fruits and ingredients. The freshness makes the drinks so much more flavorful and enjoyable, especially when you're enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.
So what are some of the best alcohols to drink during the summer?
The best boozy adult drink recipes usually contain the following:
Gin is great for making fizzy and refreshing drinks.
Rum is great for mojitos and daiquiris.
Tequila is essential in making a delicious margarita.
Vodka is versatile so it can be used in many different drinks.
You'll find plenty of drinks that contain bourbon, but we usually think of those as drinks for the cooler weather. However, there are still some delicious bourbon drinks that can be enjoyed during the summer.
Then of course we have beer, which is a summer favorite for many and is known to be low in calories. While it may taste great, it can't make any fun fruity summer cocktails with it!
