This summer has been really mild in St. Louis for the most part, but this week the temperatures have finally started to soar along with the humidity. We are looking at heat indexes around 107° F the next few days. I don’t know about you, but for me that is a tad bit oppressive. I’m going to beat the heat with a few of these frozen cocktails – take that heat and humidity! Now, if only the cocktails would make my hair less frizzy at the same time…
