With summer in full swing, it’s prime entertaining season. Summer seems to bring out my inner hostess, and I find myself constantly making excuses to have friends over for parties. (It’s true, for me, finding a cute new set of straws is reason enough.) A key ingredient in any summer soiree is a delicious, refreshing cocktail, and last summer I found a recipe that does just the trick.
Summer brew is the perfect summer cocktail. It’s not too sweet, not too stout, making it enjoyable for male and female guests alike. It’s unpretentious. Sure, it can be dressed up in a cool cocktail glass with a groovy garnish, but it tastes just as good out of a red solo cup. It’s easy to make and you can whip it up pitchers at a time, which means less time mixing and more time mingling with your guests!
See, I told you: the perfect summer cocktail. There’s only one potential flaw:
Summe rbrew is so refreshing and easy to drink, it’s easy to down a pitcher without a second thought. There’s more alcohol in there than you think, and lightweights like me will realize quickly that this potent potion packs quite the punch!
So drink up, but don’t forget to have cabs on call for your guests!
