We don’t need a calendar to tell us that summer is here—the sun is high and the Omaha weather is hotter than ever! After taking advantage of the long summer days by spending some time outside, it can be nice to sit back and enjoy a refreshing, summertime beverage.
Sure, Old Fashioneds and Cosmos are favorites year-round, but sometimes the heat calls for something light, refreshing and fruity. Thankfully, our Omaha locals are on top of it and have released a delightful gauntlet of innovative, seasonal sippers for our enjoyment. We’ve rounded up a few favorites here—both alcoholic and non—to give you plenty of ideas the next time you’re trying to beat the heat. Cheers!
