Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind.

Summer means a lot of wonderful things, but surely nothing so wonderful as not having to get kids up early and off to school. Well, also enjoying lazy, no-homework dinners on the patio. And day drinking on vacation and blender cocktails. Yes, there’s a theme here. Summer is the season to break the routine ~ it’s a legacy we all carry from years of school’s out internal celebrations, no matter how old we are. Who says Happy Hour at My House is only for Fridays? It’s SUMMATIME.

Cheers to Daily Drinks. We’re Tracking A New Cocktail Recipe Each Day To Make & Drink Together This Month.
