I'm just a little bit obsessed with cocktails. NOT because I'm a lush -- I'm a lightweight, so I can't indulge very much at all. It's for the silliest reason: I just love the way they look. All those special glasses, and the way the light shines through the liquid inside.
Okay, I also love the taste of a great cocktail, too. There are so many possibilities -- it's endlessly inspiring. But again, I'm a lightweight. The answer? Light, fruity drinks that guild your summer afternoons and nights. Add a little seltzer water, or a lot, to any of these recipes and you can enjoy that drink a lot longer (admiring it there in your hand) without getting totally sauced. Here's eight beautiful summer drinks for sipping.
