Everyone deserves a little celebratory drink once in a while… These are ten of my favorite festive sips for spring and summer. Serve them up for party guests or treat yourself to an icy refresher after a long day. Either way, you’ll have as much fun making these as you do slurping them down.

Lastly, if you didn’t already know–bar measurements can be a little confusing since “ounces” of liquids actually means “fluid ounces.” Since most of us don’t have professional bar measuring tools, here is an easy conversion chart so you can use your standard kitchen utensils:

4 ounces = 8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup
3 ounces = 6 tablespoons
2 ounces = 4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup
1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
1/2 ounce = 1 tablespoon
1/4 ounce = 1/1/2 teaspoons
1/8 ounce = 3/4 teaspoons

So which drink are you going to try first? 

Happy sipping!
