Cocktails: The Summer Starter

Yesterday was our last day of school, so while not the official first day of Summer, it certainly feels like Summer has started! This is a perfect light refreshing cocktail to embrace these Summer nights. Feel free to use your liquor of choice here. I used tequila. (obviously… I always use Tequila!)
