August is known for being one of our hottest months, which is a bit frightening considering the heat of June and July. But we Midwesterner’s soak it up like crab to butter, because our summer months are short and precious. August is a hectic month for many, last minute vacations and kids start back to school. The delightfully careless moments of the season are waning, as we strive to take full advantage of the summer sun and carefree attitude. This month, we are sharing our favorite summer cocktails that make your deck the coolest place to be in town! A cold beer is great, and you can’t deny a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc or Rosé, but a signature fruity cocktail makes you the talk of the town.
