Recipes: Cooling Summer Sips

Just in time for those 116-degree days, JW Marriott Desert Ridge has introduced three tasty cool-you-down drinks (two cocktails that can be found at the resort’s twenty6 Lounge, serving happy hour daily 3 to 6 p.m. and a kid-friendly drink that begs to be sipped poolside).
