Now that the summertime is finally here in Central, Texas, I have truly anticipated and been super anxious about showcasing my favorite summertime drink. "Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine" it’s not just a song. It’s also a cocktail drink my family and I made years ago that has always been a crowd-pleaser at any event or party in the summertime.
