Who’s Thirsty?

It’s summer, it’s hot out, you’re thirsty, and cocktails are in the air. You may be brunching left and right, or meeting friends for drinks, or doing normal daily things, but chances are, you may be in need of a delicious and refreshing drink, and don’t want to pack on loads of sugar and random syrups. For this, we got you covered with some relatively

healthy cocktails. There’s still alcohol in there, so we’re not saying it’s an antioxidant, but…they work. Here are three recipes to get the party going.
