Beat the heat with these cool summer drinks. With refreshing summer meals with cocktails and mocktails as well as creative twists on classic lemonade and blended margaritas, we've chosen a collection of refreshing summer drinks for you to sip all season long.

1 1/2 - cups fresh or frozen raspberries
1/2 - cup sugar
1/2 - cup water
pinch salt
2 - 3 - small scoops lemon or peach sorbet
Extra dry champagne, chilled
Raspberries and/or lemon slices (optional)

In a small saucepan combine raspberries, sugar, water, and salt. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and cook and stir until raspberries are soft and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Transfer raspberry mixture to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Strain into a pint-size jar; discard solids. Cool completely.
In a stemless wine glass, add sorbet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of raspberry syrup* and slowly top with chilled champagne. Garnish with additional raspberries and/or lemon slices, if desired.

*Extra syrup can be stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks.
