I'm one of those girls who lives for the summer. Even on the hottest days, I don't look forward to those first few crisp weeks in September and October because I know I'll have to say goodbye to the things I love about hot weather. All too soon, my beloved outdoor brunch spots will put away their patio tables, and the streetside fruit stands I frequent will be closed for the year.
With that in mind, you might as well make the most of your favorite warm-weather activities while you still can — and while you're at it, sip on the summer cocktails that'll help you savor those summer memories year-round. That's why we've partnered with the makers of Smirnoff Sourced to create a few custom cocktails that are easy to make and have the tiniest hints of autumn so you can enjoy them now in the sweltering heat until well beyond Labor Day when the temperature cools down. In the meantime, they pair perfectly with whatever fun-in-the-sun plans are on your itinerary this summer, whether you're headed to the beach or partaking in a picnic brunch with your friends.
