I know everyone is looking forward to the long weekend and celebrating the start of summer! I am excited about the sunshine and warm weather. One of my favorite summer cocktails is a Paloma. This classic recipe is so refreshing on a summer afternoon. You can just grab a few ingredients and serve these this weekend!
