Some of us might be streaming entire seasons of shows on Netflix with some upcoming free time, or simply watching new episodes of your favorite TV shows this summer. Either way, there can be something unexciting about it all without something to munch or sip on!

 

Instead of scouring the internet for recipes that have lots of ingredients that may not turn out as good as the it sounds, try some of the ones that we have found and tried ourselves: these cocktails are not only tasty but easier than most cocktails to make!
