Summer Mocktails

If you're like me, you love the summer and all that it has to offer. Summer BBQ’s, socials, outings, but you DON’T like feeling groggy, tired, or hungover after these events. So, how do I prevent this? Mocktails! These are my saving grace in any social function where I still want to participate with others but not drink. If I’m hosting, I always make sure I prepare mocktails, and if I’m going out, I either order my club soda and lime, or a shirley temple. But, I do like to have recipes on hand if I’m throwing a party or going o a friend's event. So, here are my top 5 recipes:

1. Watermelon Agua Fresca

2 cups cold water

2 cups watermelon
