Juan for the Road: Last Call for Summer Fruits!

August is the last month for lots of great summer fruits, but it’s also the time to embrace the ones that are going to be around for a little bit longer. I have some cocktails that will spice up your weekends and surely entertain your guests’ taste buds!

We have a strawberry Mojito for you that you should drink now; we also have peach and lemon cocktails that showcase fruits in their prime. Drink up, because while we may be reaching the last stretch of summer, your cocktail game doesn’t have to cool down with it.
