Summer has finally sprung! If you’re over the age of 21, you know what that means: It’s time to put away your winter bottles of scotch and whiskey and break out the vodka, rum, and tequila. Thankfully, the people over at ForRent.com have set us up with a collection of summer drink recipes that will ensure your weekend barbecues are an absolute smash.
It’s worth mentioning that most of the drinks on this list contain a decent amount of sugar and calories. But honestly, one of the great pleasures in life is enjoying a tall Mojito on a hot July day, so you should definitely treat yourself while you can. And what’s the point of all the hard work you do year-round if you can’t let loose with a Long Island Iced Tea every once in a while?
Just remember: Though these summer drinks might taste like punch, they also pack a mean one. Each recipe calls for at least one shot (1.5 oz) of liquor, so be sure to space them out with a glass of water in between drinks. There might not be much better than a cold mixed drink on a hot day, but there’s nothing worse than a pounding headache on a muggy morning after.
