While some people jump on planes to exotic locales, others have a different destination in mind. When the couch and the backyard offer that vacation vibe, these Tito's summer staycation cocktails have everyone toasting to the good life.

Summer and vacation go hand in hand. But, as travel costs rise, tensions escalate, and budgets deplete, the ability to jump on a plane to that must see locale is becoming less palatable. Some people are turning to their backyard to create that vacation moment.

The staycation does not even have to be a huge event. It can even just turn a simple afternoon into that tropical vibe, even without the palm trees and tiki torches. All it takes is some imagination and a great cocktail.

According to Taylor Berry, VP of Marketing at Tito's Handmade Vodka, "Tito’s Handmade Vodka has always been about making the good moments great, even if those moments are simply in the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re deciding to take a break from traveling this summer or just have a weekend or two to yourself... your house, a friend’s pool, the local dive, a nearby hotel – they can all be their own paradise with a Tito’s cocktail in hand."
