We couldn’t kick this list off with any other drink. Obviously this is Daisy’s old standby and a perfectly icy, fresh classic.  Say it with us: ahhhh…

Not only is this drink named after one of our favorite 1920s expressions, but it’s made with honey and lemon which automatically makes it amazing. It’s like it was made for summer!

5.) 12-Mile Limit

The 12 Mile Limit is named after a prohibition law so naturally you’ll feel really sneaky drinking it. Or something.
