summer cocktails

it is almost that time of year again, the thought of long, warm, summer days, lazing about with a bit of cool libation to tickle your palate. just in time for the season, there is a brand new cocktail cookbook to delight your tastebuds. this is not the first time i have enjoyed these authors, i relished my copy of winter cocktails,  i vowed to try 7 new cocktails every night at sunset for one week, it was an excellent week! check out some of the fun i had in winter...

since i had such a great time before, i am willing to try it all over again, for the sake of research, of course! this week i will try several new summer cocktails, the book is just as refreshing as their first one! i will be enjoying the fresh tastes of the summer garden, plus this time they tossed in a few recipes to round out the cocktail hour. enjoy a sneak peak of this soon to be released book...

right now my summer cocktails are infusing, more to come soon, cheers!
