Summer Cocktails

by Sun

Have you ever had a yard sale? There are obvious benefits to having a yard sale but there are some unexpected benefits as well.
You get to rid of stuff you don't need and won't miss for some cash. Then you get to meet some neighbors you have never met and even make some new friends too.

We met Jennifer during our ' Grand Yard Sale ' last year. She has such a bubbly sweet personality that we kept in touch since then. ( btw can I brag that we made $2500 from the yard sale!) Recently I saw her again at Carlos' design presentation a couple of weeks ago at BBDO ad agency. Jennifer works at Hyatt and she mentioned about Hyatt's Summer Cocktail recipes and I thought it would be fun to share those recipes here since we have never posted any alcohol beverages on savorychicks before.

As much as we love Summer, it can get pretty sweaty and unpleasant at times. Here are some fun, yummy Summer cocktail recipes to cool the heat and feel pleasant again. Let's enjoy the Summer to it's max!
