15 Cocktails to Sip on This Summer

One thing that is always a summer constant, especially at summer gatherings, are delicious drinks. Whether you’re relaxing poolside with the girls sipping on margaritas all day (discussing why you’re single or your latest career move) or enjoying a fruit-filled sangria at a backyard barbecue, I’m sure we can all agree that cocktails and good company make summer more enjoyable.

Spending endless hours catching up with friends over delicious cocktails is something I look forward to each summer, even more so if it’s a friend I don’t see often. So I’ve gathered 15 cocktails for you to sip on—all of which would be perfect for your next barbecue, a girls’ night on the deck, or even while reading a book on your patio.
