My favourite summer drinks are citrus ones like lemonades, milkshakes and margaritas. You can use so many fruits this time of the year but if you don't use berries, lemons or limes, water melons and apples , it doesn't really bring out the summer vibe. To me these are my go to fruits for making my fruit punch and drinks all summer long so this collection has me covered with the latest homemade summer drinks.
