Summer is just around the corner, and in Texas, that means brutal heat is just around the corner too. Of course we have ways of adapting to the heat... running the a/c with reckless abandon regardless of the $300 electric bill we know is coming, pool/beach/river time... and of course... cool, refreshing beverages. Just the thought has me inspired to find some of the best Summer cocktail recipes. To me, they should be fizzy, fruity, and fresh (sorry for the shameless alliteration), and these are some of my favorites.

St. Germain is one of my favorites, as is champagne, so those are always a good idea. And I love all of the fresh fruits like grapefruit and peach, and green additions like mint.
