Whether hosting a back yard BBQ or enjoying a quiet evening on the back porch, summer is the perfect time for a refreshing cocktail. One of my go-to creations is a simple yet elegant Gin & Tonic. You can dress it up with as many garnishes you want.

A kid friendly cocktail is also a fun addition to summer gatherings. We love to dress up sparkling water and or juice with special garnishes for the kiddos.

Cheers to the Summer!
