Author Notes: When I think of summer, I think of those long weekend afternoons, where it seems like you'll never lose the sun. Where the conversations are warm and the drinks are cold and it feels like the day will never end. This is a perfect cocktail to accompany those long summer days and keep you feeling refreshed.
