    Summer encourages me to break out the whisky. If its hot out, I want whisky. Scotch, Bourbon, Canadian, Irish, doesn't matter. Just give me room temperature whisky.

    So, what is everyone's summer-time drink of choice?

    Aunt Annie's Gin and Tonic:

    Fill pint glas with ice cubes
    Pour finger or finger and a half of Beafeater gin over ice
    Rub large lime wedge around rim of glass then squeeze over ice and gin, toss in glass.
    Fill glass with tonic... Usually Schweppes
    Drink and repeat
    Greylock and Fever Tree work nicely if you feel the need to show off

    My camp margarita:

    Can of minute maid frozen limeade concentrate
    Mix according to directions on can but replace one can of water with silver tequila and half can of water with tripplesec.
    This beverage resides squarely in the LPR realm
    You're welcome

    I would normally say beer, as cold as possible without turning to slush. Since fatty is on a diet again this summer, its Tito's and soda with a lime.

    Once the mint comes in I'm all about mint juleps. I keep mint simple syrup in the frig all summer for them and mojitos. I like high proof bourbons for the juleps like Old Granddad 114.

    Used to be a G&T guy. But one day when I was out of gin, I subbed in tequila and have never looked back. Nothing tastes better to me on a hot summer day than a tequila and tonic.

    Homemade lemonade: Two cups sugar, two cups water, boil till dissolved. Six lemons squeezed for all their life. Two pounds of ice cubes. Mix until dissolved and serve over ice.


    I didn’t quit drinking, I just don’t do it much anymore. If I do, it’s whisky over ice.

    I’m an equal opportunity imbiber, but when push comes to shove, and it’s hella hot out, it’s either mojitos or gin & tonics for me.

    Usually a Leinie's Summer Shandy or a Ginger Ale and Kraken for me in the summer. Winter is Jack from the freezer.
