With summer vacation in full swing, happy hour is in full effect around here. And while we adults are enjoying fabulous cocktails, I love concocting sweet drinks for the youngsters. Some of the recipes have sugar, and some taste like a sugary treat while being far better for the kiddos. Happy summer! And cheers all around!
