The Memorial Day weekend officially kicks off today, and cheers to celebrating with some sun and fun. Whether weekend plans include a cookout, pool time, the beach scene or other fun, refreshing cocktails are always a great addition to the festivities.
Suggestions for a few tried-and-true, and modern spins, include:
• Anything with watermelon: Think sangria or mojitos.
• Cucumber gin and tonic: A refreshing twist on a classic.
• Spiked lemonade: What’s a cookout without some (grown-up) lemonade?
• Frozen drinks: Strawberry daiquiri, pina coladas and margaritas are all great standards. Add fresh fruit, and it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
