So to help keep myself focused, and to inspire your summer party planning, I have made up a list of all the delicious cocktails I have on my list to make very soon. Plus, some dreamy summer porches and patios that would be so great to lounge on with all my besties!

So keep on scrolling to find your new favorite summertime cocktail recipe, and an outdoor living space we know you'd love to relax! Sip, sip hooray!!!
