Summer Cocktails Recipes

Because yesterday we were talking bar styling, then naturally today's post had to include drinks and recipes. After all, no self-respecting party bar is complete without pretty libations?! 

Here are some of my faves, handpicked for their awesome taste but also good looks, 'cause we all know we eat (or drink) with our eyes first. I'm particularly digging all the recipes that contain some sort of herb: thyme, mint, lavender, rosemary...to make use of my garden bounty this summer! Looks super funky too!!

This recipe is perfect for using up end of season fruit that you may have in abundance. It works great with any kind of melon, and you can spike it up with your favorite tipple, or sparkling lemonade.

It's as delicious as it is easy to make, and perfect for those lazy soirees! ;)
