How are y'all doing in this heat? With these temperatures, I want nothing more than to be posted up at home with the AC blasting until about October. But since I have to make a living and have a life (there's a difference) I need to leave my house on a regular basis. And I'm sure you do, too. So today, I'm sharing a mouthwatering roundup of summer sips--easy drinks to cool you off in this unrelenting weather.
