Easy Summer Cocktails

I'm all about refreshing cocktails in the summer (or anytime really). But, what I really look for is something that is quick, simple and light. Below are my all time favorite drinks (with exception to the toasted coconut marg, only because I haven't tried it yet but it's bound to be a top contender). What are your favorite summer cocktails and recipes? 

via A Beautiful Mess:   1 ounce cream of coconut //   1.5 ounces 1800 Silver Tequila //   1 ounce Cointreau //   3 ounces lime juice //  1 ounce simple syrup // 3 ounces coconut milk // 1 splash half and half // sweetened coconut flakes

Just looking at this picture makes me drool. If you haven't tried a Moscow Mule, add it to your list THIS WEEKEND. 2 oz vodka // 1/2 oz lime juice // 4 oz cardamom ginger ale // lime wheel and pinch of ground cardamom for garnish

I absolutely love a good, classic mojito. But, if you wanna add a little summery spin to it, switch out your basic rum for coconut rum, yum! What you need: 6 mint leaves // 1 lime, cut in half // 1-1/2 teaspoons Truvia Spoonable (I prefer simple syrup) // 2 ounces coconut rum // Ice // Seltzer water
