Is it even summer if you don’t have an ice-cold drink in your hand? I think not. Those sweltering, hot days call for a tall glass of something fresh, cool, and flavorful. Whatever your tastes, I’ve got you covered with this list of DIY summer mocktails the whole family can enjoy.
Cucumber Lemon Cooler
Looking for a drink that pairs well with your summer salads and grilling go-tos? Enter the cucumber lemon cooler. Refreshing and fizzy, it’s the crisp complement to any BBQ meal. Since the flavor is nice and light, use ice cubes or an ice ball instead of crushed ice to avoid diluting your drink too quickly. (Cubed ice will take longer to melt in the hot sun.)
