With the kids out of school and long weekends on the horizon, now is the ideal time to entertain friends and family. When hosting a recent family gathering, I turned to my talented friend Meghan McCracken for the perfect summer libations. She recommended champagne cocktails for a sweet and refreshing drink- perfect for our hot and humid summer. Below we are sharing two of Meghan's go-to summer cocktails!
Cheers to Summer!

Place 3-4 sprigs of fresh mint in the bottom of a glass.
Add 2 oz. of squeezed lime juice and muddle together.
