When we take a sip of pink lemonade, it always brings back wonderful memories of carefree childhood summers.

Even if those days are long gone, we still love drinking the refreshing beverage, especially if it’s spiked with a little booze. These pink lemonade cocktails are perfect summer drinks in every way. A couple of them actually contain pink lemonade, while two simply have a refreshing lemony taste and beautiful rosy hue. Next time you’re feeling nostalgic for the summers of yore, mix of one of these satisfying seasonal sippers.
