Sweet Finds: Late Summer Cocktails

So summer happened. I know—crazy, right? It feels like we just had this conversation, about how it was Mother’s Day and summer was about to be here, and we were so excited and we knew it would go really, reallyreally quickly, but we were ready for it. Bring on the summer.

And so summer came and here we are, minutes from Labor Day, the unofficial close of summer. I don’t know about you, but this is actually my favorite part of summer—the golden part that ripens beautifully into autumn with all its blue skies, red leaves, warm honey-colored light, and the promise of crisp evenings. This is also the time of summer when the mosquitoes finally start to dwindle in number and I can truly sit on my front porch in the evenings without being eaten alive. Huzzah!

As summer gently ebbs, we must seize the days and soak up the loveliness while we can. We should be outside! On porches! Laughing with friends!

But what’s a late-summer evening on the porch without a cocktail, or, as some of us called it growing up: a hotsy-totsy. Here to wet your whistle is a collection of divine summer drinks, some with a liquor punch, others without, all with a kick-back-on-the-porch vibe of deliciousness.

Thanks to the creative kitchen artists who mixed up these hotsy-totsy beauties.

Cheers to late summer, friends.

    OMGosh….those all look SO good!

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a huge portion of people will miss your fantastic writing because of this problem.

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I believe that you could do with a few p.c. to force the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
