    Hendrick's gin, splash of Campari, 1" stalk of bruised lemon grass, soda, big ice cube.

    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.

    2oz vodka
    1/4 oz lime juice
    1/2 tsp sugar

    Shake, serve over rocks with bruised mint leaves.

    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.
