Hello, summer, our old friend. We’ve come to drink with you again.

This sangria mocktail from blog Jen’s Favorite Cookies uses peaches, plums, strawberries and clementines, but feel free to branch out into whatever fruits you like best (or are on sale at the grocery store), including blueberries, blackberries, kiwis, pineapples, mangoes or melons. Just put the fruit in a bowl, pour over enough alcohol to coat and let it sit for at least an hour.

Or, keep your cup virgin and enjoy a hangover-free morning — which also sounds pretty sweet.
