Free-Spirit Sips You should be Serving at your Summer Soiree

Free-Spirit Sips You should be Serving at your Summer Soiree

If you’re hosting a summer party this season, you’ve got to consider what your guests will be sipping. Maybe you’re aware, or maybe you aren’t, but some of your guests might not want to get smashed. These simple, clean and classic sips are a must-have for your next summer party! Drink options really shouldn’t be limited to soda or plain-’ol water for those who choose not to drink alcohol. Offering a - what we like to call - “free-spirit sip” is what thoughtful party-hosts provide. Your guests shouldn’t have to ask for a free-spirit drink; it should be just as readily available as the buzz-worthy drinks! It can actually be fun to make and equal parts fun to sips throughout the party! Your guests will love how you thought of them in making a batch of or single serve these classic drinks for everyone!
