Let’s Make a Toast – in True End-of-Summer Fashion

 

Just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean we have to pack up our sangria recipes and store them away until next June – thank goodness. I’m sure we can all agree that there are still plenty of warm nights and fireside soirées left in the season, even while trying to ignore that end-of-summer nostalgia we know oh so well. The best way to toast to the end of this season? With these late-summer editions of our favorite cocktails.

White Strawberry Lemon Sangria
Sub white rum for vodka in fruity sangrias for a little something extra when the nights start to cool down – the perfect way to keep the warmth of our day aglow.

Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita
All the tang of a regular margarita, with the fiery kick of jalapeño makes this cocktail our sunset-watching drink of choice – and we’re squeezing in every last gorgeous backdrop.

Lemon Spiked Sweet Tea
The best way to cool off during our last few sticky summer days? With a glass of this refreshing twist on a summertime classic.

Now, pour yourself a cold one and salute to your unforgettable summer.
