My kids are finally out of school, which means summer has officially arrived! One of my favorite parts of summer is sitting on my front porch in the early evening with no threat of homework, sports schedules or early bedtimes. When friends or neighbors drop by, I love to offer them a lively summer libation fit for the season.
During the summer months, you will almost always find my kitchen loaded with fresh berries and citrus. Another thing I love to keep in my fridge is homemade infused simple syrups, as well as mixers such as soda, tonic and ginger beer. With these ingredients on hand, you will be ready to whip up something lively and delicious to serve your friends. Here are a few of my favorites!
