    UPDATE: It's the freakin' weekend! We lost out on our normal Fourth of July long weekend this year, so make up for it by kicking things off with one of these refreshing bevs. This story was originally published on May 25.

    Mixed drinks come in many variations, but none are more appreciated than the slow-sipped, hell-yeah-it's-a-long-weekend, poolside cocktail. And we think you deserve several of those. Sure, you may not have fancy garnishes, Cristal, or a sexy bartender to cater to your needs on your back patio rooftop, but that doesn't mean you can't be the master of your own consumption.

    To help you play mixologist, we've broken down 15 recipes that are guaranteed to make you the most legendary Memorial Day party host the East Coast has ever seen. With recipes including a Guava Margarita, Coconut Gimlet, and a 98-calorie refresher (cuz let's be honest, you're gonna be in bathing suits, no?), the coolest sips will be a cinch to serve up this holiday weekend. Just please remember to drink (and tan, and swim, and play tennis, and take selfie-pics) responsibly.
