Summer Cocktail Essential: Paper Straws

There's nothing like enjoying a cold cocktail on a hot summer day. I also love straws, and think they make cocktails and entertaining even more fun. Paper straws have been a growing trend in recent years, and I still find myself introducing them to those who haven't yet had the experience of sipping through this throwback to ice cream parlors and soda shops. They can be a substitute for cocktail markers, are available in a ton of colors and patterns, and are an easy and fun way to add color and whimsy to parties.
