There are a few activities that scream summer as strongly as day drinking. Spending a Saturday or Sunday relaxing with a cold beer, wine or cocktails just feels right when the weather is steamy.

But all that drinking in the hot sun can hit harder than you expect. Let’s be real – 40 proof liquor and strong sun aren’t always the best match. So, we asked a few of our favorite crawlers around the country on what their favorite summertime homemade cocktail!


Megan from St. Pete went with a dry wine, three fruit juices, sparkling water and fresh fruit, this is a delicious and refreshing option that’ll help beat the heat. 

  • 2 lemons sliced thin
  • 3 oranges sliced thin
