Now is the time to make these seven refreshing cocktails with ripe peaches, watermelon and strawberries.

1. Blueberry Margarita
Muddled blueberries star in this quick and easy cocktail.

2. Strawberry-Lemon Mojitos
Try a molasses-based rum for a smoother drink, or a sugarcane-based rum for a drier cocktail.

3. Blackberry and Cabernet Caipirinha
This punch-like take on the caipirinha features a Cabernet blended with spicy Syrah.

4. Mango-Peach Sangria 
John Besh recommends Viognier, a fruity white wine, for this summery sangria.

5. Sour-Cherry Gin Slings
How do you upgrade the classic Singapore sling? Replace the traditional cherry brandy with a vibrant, homemade sour-cherry syrup.

6. Watermelon-Tequila Cocktails
Bobby Flay mixes silver tequila with pureed watermelon and fresh blueberries.

7. Sunburst
Kiwi adds both sweet and sour flavors and terrific texture to this excellent cooler.
