Kelsi, I'm sure I have a few recipes for whiskey sours around....(after all, I did study bartending for a semester!) I'll send 'em your way for you to play with!
I love putting lemonade in my beer. I forgot what it is called...
personally, i stick with beer, with the occasional gin and tonic exception. clearly, i need this book so i can expand my options! ^-^
I just love a good mojito!
I like a good strawberry lemonade any day- just add vodka when in the right mood!
magaritas and mojitos...mmmmm!!! :)>>> :)>>> spiced red wine in the winter ;)b
when i used to drink, i loved pretty much any sort of martini. especially pretty pink ones. :)
but now i don't drink. i've been getting these drinks called "dry soda" which are made in seattle
and are a, well, dry tasting soda which are meant to be a non alcoholic version of champagne.
the other day i mixed a bottle of the vanilla bean dry soda with some orange juice. tasted quite like a mimosa, which is super :)>>>!!!
also, iced mint tea is always good (hanashi gave me the idea the other day, i think, and i loooove it!).
anything cold and minty is good on hot days. :)

You mean non-alcoholic, of course :)
Anything with strawberries, really. Strawberries ARE summer, if you ask me.
herbal sun tea with filtered-water ice (2 spearmint: 1 peppermint)
eta: I usually drink liquid chlorophyll with mint (I like the Bernard Jensen brand) because it's like tea only it doesn't take any effort.
I don't like alcohol when it's hot hot hot outside.
I don't drink alcohol very often. My favorite summertime drink (or anytime, really) is lemonade.
Strawberry. Watermelon. Vodka. Slushie. :)>>>
My favourite is a japanese slipper:
1 part Lemon Juice
1 part Midori
1 part Cointreau
Shake with ice then strain - it's so cool and icy and the citrus/melon taste is heavenly :)
Frozen Margaritas made in the Vitamix (using real lemon and lime, not the mix)....lots of salt on the rim! :)>>>
Wine wine wine wine wine. That's pretty much the only alcohol I've drunk at all recently.
But that's not a cocktail, so I guess I'd say, anything with coconut rum. Coconut rum and coke, pina coladas, coconut rum in orange juice........
Mash a little fresh mint leaf and zest one lime put that in the bottom of your glass cover with ice...then mix separately about 1 ounce lime juice, 3/4 ounce orange juice, 3 ounces of mint green tea, and 1-2 ounces of tequila(I prefer silver!) add that to your glass, garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime or orange slice. ;)b
