Saving the sweetest for last. A Hurricane is like dessert in a glass! Created in New Orleans, this dark rum, passion fruit syrup and lemon juice cocktail is traditionally garnished with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry. Laissez le bon temps rouler, indeed!

June 21st at 10:57 am we rand in the first day of Summer.  I have for you some Summer Time Beverages For The Pool Or The Lake that are easy to make and easy to drink.  On the long and hot dog days of summer, sometimes something refreshing to drink is a must.  Beer, bourbon, and whiskey are all still very popular in the summer, but it’s the fruity drinks we crave.

Summer also sees an uptick in beer sales.  With all of the different types of beer now, Truly, Twisted Tea and others, Its not shocking.  For me personally, what I like to drink in the summer are two drinks.  The first is just Crown Royal Peach and lemonade.  My second go to, Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum and Diet Coke.

When it comes to refreshing summer drinks, it’s a lot of trail and error for me.  Try it till I find what I like.  It doesn’t matter if you are drinking at home with a gathering.  Taking it to the lake, Or a back yard cook out.

Please remember; Drink responsibly and always have a designated driver or get an Uber if you’ve had to much to drink

Here come some of the easiest cocktails ever to make for Summer
