Hendrick's gin, splash of Campari, 1" stalk of bruised lemon grass, soda, big ice cube.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
a variation called the porch swing can be found on the smitten kitchen site ... we use homemade lemonade and replace the splash of 7-up with one of seltzer
2 oz of your favorite tequila 4 oz of pineapple juice and 1 oz pomegranate juice.
Kind of like a tequila sunrise, but this is even better. I never heard a name for it, but I order this if they have the ingredients on hand, hawaian sunrise maybe?
Being one who prefers bourbon without stuff in it, I tend to pass on the mint julips. But the Kremlin Colonel has a similar feel for the times when straight booze isn't in the cards.
1/4 oz lime juice
1/2 tsp sugar
Shake, serve over rocks with bruised mint leaves.
giner-peach mojito made w/ fresh Palisades peacehs!!!
Sangria, with lots of fruit.
Prosecco or super chilled beer.
I have to agree on the Mint Julep and Mojito, but this summer I've chosen the Cuba Libre. My personal favorite is Ron Zacapa Centenario rum, juice of 1/4 lime, and DIET Coke. Don't know why, but Diet Coke is better for a Cuba Libre. Maybe because it's less sweet. If you don't feel like spending the $$ for the Ron Zacapa, or if you can't find it around you, Cruzan (preferably the 12 year) is a good substitute.
