Summer sips: End of summer drinks

Watermelon-cucumber kombucha cooler

Muddled sugar plum bee's knees

"In its purest form, this cocktail is smooth and stimulating, and one serving is potent enough to give you a tiny buzz.  I added a muddled plum for sweetness and because they’re just so darn good right now." - JJ Begonia

Crushed strawberry margarita

"This drink tastes more like real strawberries and less like bubble gum. It allows you to drink a fruit-flavored cocktail and maintain your dignity. Also muddling the strawberries and lime wedges together smells intoxicating all by itself, just imagine what happens when you add the tequila." - Hola Jalapeno
