Summer is the time of year that never comes soon enough, and is over way too quickly. We have partnered with mike's hard lemonade to inspire the Instructables Community to squeeze more awesome out of summer.

What do you do when it's hot outside (depending on where you are it could be really hot out). The days are long, and we all wish the nights could last forever. Cool off with some Mike's Hard Lemonade, and brainstorm ways you can celebrate the season.

We want to see all of your awesome summer projects, party ideas, swim suits, anything that makes summer awesome! Be sure to tag your project with the #mikehacks hashtag!
