Memorial Day always marks the arrival of ungodly heat here in Phoenix. This is the time when the kids usually get out of school and everyone starts to hit the road!
I spent most of my life in San Diego, and I always knew why so many Arizona license plates would show up on the freeways between June and August, but I never really completely understood until I moved to Phoenix. It's dangerous here! We're the opposite of most places in the country. We hide inside from June to October, when most people are enjoying the outside. And when everyone in the North and East are hiding inside during the winter months, we're outside loving life! Needless, we can get pretty creative on ways to beat the heat.
If you're hosting a get-together for the coming holiday weekend, get ready for some sunshine, and get ready to beat the heat with some of these cool, ice cream cocktails!
