Remember how as children we were so freaking fascinated with cool, colourful drinks and weird candies? And then we were hit by adulthood like a truck and any drink that could knock you out for the night became our fantasy. No, my fellow drinkers, you don’t need to do that anymore, because here’s how we can combine our sweet childhood, summer dreams with some fine as hell alcohol.
