The Long Hope

This sophisticated cocktail, called the Long Hope, blends cucumber, mint, and honeydew melon juice with homemade lemonade and gin to create a refreshingly sweet and fruity drink that's just right for warm-weather sipping. (If cool cucumber is right up your alley, try these other cucumber cocktails.)

Jalapeño Vodka Lemonade

Don't let these cute cocktails fool you—this Jalapeno Vodka Lemonade packs some serious heat. The spice comes from jalapeno-infused vodka (another DIY project that will impress your friends), but is diluted with a simple homemade lemonade recipe: Fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and water. (Serve alongside one of these breakfast tacos for the best brunch ever.)

Strawberry Vodka Lemonade

Forget those sickeningly-sweet pre-flavored vodkas—DIY your own strawberry-infused booze (it's easier than you think) for this Strawberry Vodka Lemonade. Just let strawberries sit in a mason jar with vodka for one week, mix with sparkling lemon soda, and enjoy!
