Check out four adults-only gin cocktails that are a refreshing contrast to the summer heat.

No. 1: John Cusimano's Salty Dog Fizz

This salty gin cocktail combines salt and the tang of grapefruit to create a perfect adult beverage to sip on a porch.

No. 2: Gin & Tonic Ice Pops

Just mix gin, water, tonic water, sugar, juice and zest of two limes and pour into a popsicle mold and freeze! The end result – a boozy lime popsicle!

No. 3: The "TC"

This lemon-lime gin cocktail is a perfect antidote to a steamy summer day.

No. 4: Grant's Smoky Jalapeño Lemonade with Gin

For this decadent cocktail, Grant makes a mint-infused simple syrup, then add lemon juice, gin, and a charred jalapeno and marinates overnight. Serve over ice, and top with seltzer. Garnish with a sprig of mint, and sliced lemon and jalapeno.
