Getting ready for Memorial Day weekend parties with drink recipes is our kind of prepartion, especially when they are incredibly easy to make.

Working with the season in both flavor and temperature, these ice cold drinks will win over even the pugnacious of long-weekend warriors. Sparkling Ice beverages mixed with Santa Margherita wine is a combination perfect for distraction from sunburn and work looming the following week. All of the recipes are fruit based, so it becomes far easier to justify a couple more as opposed to just one.
