End of Summer Refreshment Recipes

I don't know about where you live, but where we are located these last few weeks of nothing but incredibly hot days and annoyingly hot nights have begun to take their toll on our abilities to withstand wanting an ice cold libation. Ok who are we lying too, we just were looking for a reason too try out some new recipes and with the last few days of Summer sitting before us and it being so hot as of late, how many more reasons do we truly need to do some out of the box drinking, I mean thinking.
As always enjoy these recipes, RESPONSIBLY.
