Prepared Drinks

If you have time and want to manage your budget for drinks, making prepared drinks is a fun addition to any outdoor party. For an outdoor party, I would suggest melamine drinkware or glassware you won't miss if it gets broken. Everyone loves budget-friendly fresh-brewed iced tea during the spring and summer. Pair tea with your favorite bourbon, simple syrup and fresh fruit for a light, refreshing summer beverage.
