Peachy lemonade martinis might win over even the biggest cocktail purists

I love the idea of martinis. They're classic, sophisticated and an easy go-to order when you're feeling on your game. The thing is, I think I love the olives more than the alcohol itself.

Let's be real: Martinis are no joke (even when you make them extra dirty like I always ask for). I can nurse one of them for over an hour and still have trouble finishing it — it's just so strong!

A summer version, however, with sweet peaches and tangy lemonade is a whole different story. These go down like candy (try a sugar rim for even more of a treat) and will be your new favorite summer drink.
