Luckily, one of the most tried and true methods of combating the effects of a hangover is to dust yourself off and start drinking again.
Whether you’re spending your summer preparing a barbeque or a pool party or just enjoying your free time on a hammock, you will need some refreshing cocktails to cool down. From simple batches of ice-cold tea or lemonade to bubbly sangria, your summer drink doesn’t have to be boring, both aesthetic and taste-wise.

Highballs soon became an instant and widespread hit in the Land of the Rising Sun.
