Cool down with this watermelon margarita [1]. A slice of lime is the perfect garnish for this boozy Summer treat.

Two of my favorite drinks packed into one cup. The piña colada mojito [2] is born.

We love the effervescence of the gin berry fizz [3]. Can you ever go wrong with strawberries and lemon?

Nothing says Summer like a delicious glass of sangria. This basil sangria [4] is a refreshing spin on the Spanish classic.

Iced tea is a Summer staple. This spiked cherry tea [8] is sure to quench your thirst.

We love the twist on this jalapeno margarita [9]. Be prepared! It packs a spicy punch.

Instead of the traditional take on a rum-filled spirit, this lemonade mojito [10] opts for vodka instead.
