Summer is great time to socialize and entertain with friends, especially with delicious cocktails for those of us 21 and older. Most of us aren’t trained “mixologists,” so all those fancy craft cocktails don’t always turn out so yummy at home. We found three great recipes that we wanted to share with you, courtesy of ivillage.com! All of them are easy to make and require few ingredients:
