Summer is here! It’s time for cool, refreshing drinks and fun in the sun. I love a good margarita as much as the next guy, but sometimes it’s better to avoid the alcohol when you’re trying to stay hydrated. So here are 18 delicious non-alcoholic drinks that are perfect for birthday parties, backyard BBQs, or just sipping on your front porch swing.

18 Non-Alcoholic Drinks For Summer

1. All you need is a refreshing layered drink with a bit of magic

Red White & Blue Layered Drink

2. Satisfy your cravings with a unicorn frappe
