My love for creating fun cocktails is pretty well known by now, so I have put together my favorite 15 Refreshing Summer Cocktails to get us started. I have many more cocktail ideas bouncing around my brain right now, so there will be more favorites before the summer is over! Do you have any favorites that I should try?

Update: I originally created this round up using a gallery plugin that has since stopped working, and I lost all of the original links and images. I have recreated this collection from scratch, and I promise it is just as delicious as the original.
