Summer may be over, but drinks that give us the summer feels (since, you know, it's still 85 degrees outside) are still game in our book. That's what makes Frankie's Downtown's Peach Tea Cocktail perfect for summall (kind of the brunch of seasons). A little sweet, a little citrus, and plenty of sweet tea — sounds kind of perfect.
Grab one on their patio and enjoy the hustle of Main Street or, since it's a pretty easy cocktail, mix one up at home for the last day of laying out by the pool.
