60+ Patio Drink Recipes

These alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails are perfect for backyard entertaining, barbecues, picnics or lazy afternoons at the cottage. While some reserve a classic Mexican margarita or Cuban mojito for hot summer nights, there’s no reason why you can’t serve these delicious cocktails at holiday events year round. Serve up some strawberry lemonade and raspberry tea cosmos (both pictured above) at your next weekend party. Stock up on vodka, rum, tequila and chablis, juice, tropical fruit and ice, and you’re all set. Then, kick back with friends and a refreshing beverage. Cheers!
