4. Peach Margaritas
Peaches are the soft Summer flavor I dream of all through the Winter months. And well, I never need an occasion for Margaritas. Combine these two flavors and you have a winner in my book. Simply blend the pealed peaches, tequila, lime juice and honey in a blender until smooth. Pour into glass and top with your choice of sparkling water, then, enjoy!

6. Strawberry Chamomile Paloma
How gorgeous are these cocktails. And yes, those are edible flowers. You can make this yummy drink without the flower garnish, but it certainly adds a pretty element to the drink. This Paloma has a sweet twist on the original with the addition of strawberries and homemade chamomile syrup. Sounds delightful!
