Of all the seasons, summer is the most like a non-stop party. People have finally come out of hiding behind down jackets and Netflix marathons, and are looking to celebrate bare arms and hot sunshine. Whether you're a party of one or throwing a block party, summer is a great excuse to whip up some brunch cocktails and toast to temperatures above 70°F. Here's what we'd recommend.

You deserve to use a Slurpee as a vehicle for booze. Can I recommend a Slurpmosa? How about a Tequila Slurprise?

The coffee negroni is basically a classier version of a Four Loko: Caffeine and alcohol in one perfect package. This will keep you buzzing all day long.

Is there anything that screams summer louder than drinking spiked watermelon juice out of a watermelon? I think not.
