There’s just something about summer that makes us want to spend all day lazily sipping warm-weather cocktails. Perhaps it’s the fact that most summer drinks are basically adult slushies, or maybe we just really like cocktail umbrellas. Either way, we’ve rounded up a list of the most-shared recipes for margaritas, sangria, mojitos, daiquiris, and mint juleps, courtesy of Twitter’s analytics and @TwitterFood.Before checking out the list below, you might want to take a gander at The Daily Meal’s collection of Summer’s Best Frozen Cocktails.
