Ranch Water

Three simple ingredients come together to make ranch water, your new go-to summer cocktail. Essential to the drink, the Topo Chico brings a kick of earthy mineral flavor and tons of bubbles. —Caroline Stanko, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Rob Roy

Whiskey newbies will love this flavorful blend of spiciness, sweetness and smokiness in this Rob Roy cocktail. Scotch whisky is combined with sweet vermouth, a hint of spice from Angostura bitters and the subtle sweetness of maraschino cherries to create its aromatic taste. —Caroline Stanko, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Frozen Margaritas

One of my favorite summer drinks is a frozen margarita. What’s not to love? This drink is perfect paired with tacos or chips and salsa. —Caroline Stanko, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
