Name a better duo than hot afternoons and heady coolers- we'll wait.

With social distancing becoming the norm, it is quite clear that there will be no pool parties and evening summer soirees this year. But that does not mean that you can't have a little sundowner of your own within the safety of your home. To get you in that summer state of mind here's a list of refreshing beverages sporting a heady touch of booze to lift your spirits (pun intended).
