50 summer drink recipes for every taste

Is there anything better than lounging by the pool or sitting out on your porch with a cold, refreshing drink on a hot summer evening (or morning or afternoon)? This may be a rhetorical question, but the right answer is no. There’s just something about sipping an icy lemonade or fruity cocktail that immediately lowers your blood pressure (being poolside also helps).

We all have our go-to summer drinks, whether it’s a simple iced tea or a cold glass of beer, but wouldn’t it be fun to get a little adventurous? Maybe add a little something extra to your lemonade or try to replicate that delicious mojito you had last time you went out with friends. Preparing a drink recipe may seem daunting—and some are—but you might be surprised at how easy some of the recipes are to whip up. (Serving up special drinks is also a surefire way to impress guests at your next social gathering.)

Stacker compiled a list of summer drink recipes from Allrecipes. With 50 to scroll through, there’s something for every taste, including those who enjoy indulging in alcoholic beverages and those who’d rather keep it nonalcoholic. Cheers!
