Life can't be all sunshine and specialty cocktails…but this summer it could be! Let's beat this heat, with drinks that are as strong as the sunny summer vibes. This year, mixologists are all about fruity simple syrups and margaritas, for their versatility and options to customize. Fortunately for you, our Bucks Happenings Winners have stepped up to the plate, and created menus that incorporate seasonal summer specialties, alongside your favorite classics. From where we stand, summer Friday's have never looked so bright!
