Investing in ASX shares is a long-term game, but that doesn't mean you can't make tactical decisions along the way.

We're past mid-October now and the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is steaming higher as we near summer 2021. That means I've got my eye on a few ASX shares I think have the potential to shine over the next 3 to 6 months.

3 ASX shares to I'd buy for summer 2021

For me, the first cab off the rank is Sydney Airport Holdings Pty Ltd (ASX: SYD). With restrictions easing across the country, and a New Zealand travel bubble possibly coming into play, I think Sydney Airport shares are worth a look.

It's been a tough year for investors with the Sydney Airport share price slumping 28.5% lower in 2020 (at the time of writing). However, things could be turning a corner and I like the infrastructure group's prospects over summer.

Pointsbet Holdings Ltd (ASX: PBH) is also on my summer watchlist. The ASX wagering share is up 142.1% this year thanks to the surge in online gambling during the coronavirus pandemic.

Pointsbet is set to announce its first quarter results next Tuesday and I'll be watching closely for signs of further growth. The wagering group continues to sign lucrative partnerships across the United States which is supportive of future growth.

Add to that a summer of sports and Australia's spring racing carnival, and I think the Pointsbet share price is worth a look.

Finally, Woolworths Group Ltd (ASX: WOW) is on my potential buy list. I think eased restrictions and summer conditions could be good for Woolworths' liquor businesses.

The Woolworths share price lagged behind ASX supermarket peers like Coles Group Ltd (ASX: COL) in March due to its pubs business. COVID-19 restrictions hampered trade and reduced the conglomerate's profitability.

However, with the hospitality sector starting to hum back to life and social engagements back on the agenda, I think the liquor businesses could do a decent trade.

Foolish takeaway

These are just a few ASX shares that I like the look of this summer. There are plenty of bargains I'll be keeping my eye on in the choppy market we're seeing right now.
