It's the first long weekend of summer and we can't wait to celebrate. True, we're always looking for an excuse to gather friends and this weekend is no exception. If you're like us, you like things to be memorable so every last detail is planned. But that doesn't mean we're willing to spend hours prepping (it's too hot, and summer is supposed to be laidback), so we plan on easy drinks that have a little extra flair.

There's nothing wrong with a twist of lime or a sprig of mint, but this weekend we wanted to create some seasonal cocktail garnishes. We teamed up with PAMA Liqueur to share festive summer cocktails and garnishes that aren't predictable (it's time to move past watermelon stars, don't you think?). And PAMA is perfect for the holiday; its ruby red color is subtly patriotic and the sweet, tart pomegranate flavor adds a twist to your fave drinks. And, yes, you can totally take all the credit for creating these garnishes — that's what we're here for!
