    August has arrived and with it comes blazing sunshine and a sizzling heatwave. The cure? Delicious beverages, of course!


    Here are three local cocktails to help beat the heat this summer.

    When we think of a seasonal cocktail we think of this Summer Pimm’s from Aussie and the Fox. With fresh fruits, mint, and cucumber, this drink is a delicious mix of pure refreshment. Plus it’s gorgeous and totally ready for your next Instagram post.

    You can’t get much better than a drink that’s basically a refreshing popsicle for adults, right? This Orange Crushtini from the Cork & Cap Restaurantis the perfect blend of chill and charm–and it tastes absolutely delicious.

    The Irish Peach from Annie Bailey’s summer menu is part of the Lancaster Central Market Cocktails campaign – specialty cocktails featuring ingredients sourced from Central Market. It’s sweet, sun-kissed, and perfect for quenching your summer thirst.
