Summer Cocktail Roundup

I hate that it's only August 18th and I feel like it's time to "round up" the summer cocktails. I'm a firm believe that summer continues through the end of September. Why? Because I live in Southern California and it's too hot for pumpkin spiced lattes until the beginning of November. September is the best beach month and also why anyone would want to end Summer any earlier is a psycho. I'm sorry, I said it. Don't come for me. I'll still be mixing up summer inspired beverages but I felt like if I didn't collect some of these recipes now, this post would be a chapter book long and we all know you probably quit reading this paragraph 2 sentences in..... So. Here's my favorite Sprig drinks of the summer!
