Last night we had a little summer soiree in the park to kick off what feels like the start of my favorite season of the year. For the next 3 months, I’m the happiest girl! I’m not a big beer drinker in the summer, but I love a refreshing cocktail. I’ve been hunting down some of the most unique and delicious recipes I can find and saving them on Pinterest for the next occasion where I can make one.

There are so many great summer flavors – my favorite is cucumber, but watermelon, blueberry and pear are all growing on me as compliments. I like to use cucumber vodka to cut some of the sweetness out of the juices. If you like a little kick, try cutting up some jalapeños and throwing them in your cocktail. I’m telling you – it was a game changer and everyone I’ve shared it with has loved it!

I’m looking forward to the many occasions we’ll have to toast and celebrate summer in Chicago — do you have any upcoming parties or events? What are your favorite summer drinks?
