A cocktail made just for summer? Yes, we did it!

Meet one of Camila’s go-to summertime cocktails to serve when friends pop by! Now, if you want to cut down on the sugar, slip the rim, go with 1oz of ginger ale, and sub in 2-3 oz. of club soda instead. Either way, this cocktail is delicious, refreshing, and the perfect drink to serve at happy hour.
