Welcome summer with splashy cocktails

An iced cold beer on a blistering Florida summer day usually hits the spot. Nevertheless, there are times that call for something with a little more pizazz. The folks over at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort and Chanson Restaurant at the Royal Blues Hotel were kind enough to share a few recipes. Of course, some of these drinks are a bit labor intensive — so there is always the option of heading over to the beach and enjoying a cocktail while you admire the sea.
