Poll: What are Your Favorite Summer Drinks?

Friends, it is hella warm here in the Northern Hemisphere, and I want to have a refreshing boozy drink. What are your favorites? Non-boozy suggestions welcome also, should that be the way you roll.

Previously, I’ve talked about my love for the Moscow Mule-inspired cocktail, The Russian Lit. It’s gin-based, therefore it is amazing and magical.

The Russian Lit: Deliciousness in a Glass
Look at it though. Look. At. It.

Lately, I’ve also been mixing gin with peach Fresca or diet Squirt because it’s easy, caffeine-free, and perfect for late night Netflix binges while it’s too damn hot to sleep.

Other favorites include lime margaritas (no salt, please), or ginger beer mixed with rum.

What about you? What are your favorite summer drinks? Give a shout in the comments.

No booze here, but I frequently make this:

-probably three tablespoons of lemon juice
-12oz or more of filtered water (over the juice)
-frozen fruit if i feel like it
—alt: lemon juice, fill glass with frozen fruit, fill remaining space with water

I swear I don’t drink this as a “cleanse”. It’s just less-boring water. Also I’m a huge fan of orange juice mixed with any dark berry or grape juice.
