Legend has it this drink got its name from being crafted up at a summer music festival back in the day. However it got created, we don’t care — all we care about is how delicious and perfect for summer it is!


#4 – Long Beach Iced Tea

You’ve heard of a Long Island Iced Tea, right? Think of this cocktail as the LIIT’s sister who’s similar, but cuter. The only difference between the two is that a Long Beach Iced Tea uses cranberry juice instead of Cola for a refreshing, summer twist.


#5 – Summer Fish Bowls

This is definitely one of the most fun summer drinks out there. How can you go wrong with giant cocktails filled with candy? The only difficult choice you’ll have to make with these is if you’re willing to share or not.


#6 – Boozy Strawberries
