Summer Beverages


It is summertime. It is hot and sticky and mildly irritating. What we all need is a lovely Summer beverage or two to cool us down and keep us perky and hydrated. I'm fairly certain some, if not all, of you have super satisfying secret summer drink recipes hiding somewhere up your sleeves. So spill 'em!

Here's mine:

So-You-Can-See-The Sunrise

ingredients: 4 ounces cranberry juice
2 1/2 ounces orange juice
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Ginger Ale

how to mix: Blend the juices with ice until smooth and pour into a tall 12 ounce glass. Top with ginger ale, Garnish with a fruit stick and serve with a straw. Serve in a tall 12 ounce glass.

Your drink sounds good, Sarah!

El Fid should post her lime & cherry Kool-Aid concoction, too!

Here's another one:

Wine Spritzer (obviously not original, but good all the same)

Mix wine (White Zinfandel, Merlot, Chablis, whatever you have)with some Club Soda. Amounts of each will vary depending on your own style.

Enjoy..(Hiccup)

This drink is best consumed on hot days, and tastes best when the ingredients have not full mixed together. Consume immediately after the last ingredient is poured in.

1. Start with an empty but frozen beer mug and a shot glass.
2. Fill shot glass full of root beer schnapps and place in the bottom of the beer mug.
3. Carefully fill the beer mug 3/4 full of a good tasting pilsner variety beer, while preventing the root beer schnapps from fully mixing with the beer.
4. Carefully add orange juice up to the rim of the mug.
5. Slam the drink in one effort.
6. Repeat as necessary.

Results are a smooth, semi-sweet, alcoholic refresher, which goes down very easy with little after taste.

Here's a great summer beverage called The Heat Stroke:

1) wait until the hottest day of summer.

2) combine equal parts hershey's chocolate syrup, chocolate chip cookie dough and green tobasco sauce.

3) bring to a low boil.

4) stir in several big globs of peanut butter.

5) pour into a large mug, over mooshed-up balls of wonderbread.

6) serve warm, best if guzzled.

7) reach for a cold one: make it the cheapest, most watered-down skanky domestic beer available. You won't believe how good that cheap beer tastes!
