Ant-Man and Yellow Jacket Drink recipes

Every once in a while a great movie comes out the entire family wants to see! For us, this summer, Ant-Man is this movie!

Forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits the talents of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.

I am hoping to get to the drive in soon to see this summer blockbuster!

In anticipation of this movie I wanted to share with you all a fun summer recipe. These drinks will be great for a themed party, summer entertaining or just hanging out on the back deck with the family.
