June Poll Results Are in: G/V & Ts are the way to be

The June poll question was:
"It's summer, my friends, and I would like to know - what is your favorite summer drink?"

Responses were scattered, and there was one "other" vote for apple juice (thank you, my Philly fan!). I'll share some of the "other" responses and recipes later, but let's get to the runners up. There was a tie for second place drink between a summery white wine, a summery beer, a strawberry daiquiri or pina colada... y'know something frilly and rum-filled, and any/all of the above.

And now, the most preferred drink of the summer is.....

Some great suggestions in the "other" category included:
1. Cucumber Gimlet
3oz potato vodka
4 slices muddled seedless cucumber
1/2oz fresh lime juice
spoonful of sugar
combine ingredients, shake, serve

2. Sake-Mango cocktail
Mix sake (any cheap brand) and mango (or other flavor) sorbet in a blender. You can vary the proportions based on your desired consistency, and you can even add fresh or frozen fruit if you're feeling really fancy.

3. Pink Sangria -- this doesn't sound good to me, but you might like it!--
3 cups White Zin
2 cups Sour Mix
1 cup Watermelon Schnapps
1 cup Peach Schnapps
1/2 cup Bacardi Limon
1/2 cup Stoli Razbery
Mixed all of that up the night before. Then on party day, throw in 1/2 sliced orange, 1/2 sliced lemon & 1/2 sliced lime, pour a big glass over ice and add a splash (3 oz) of sprite.

Enjoy summer responsibly! Oh, and I almost forgot-- the winner of most creative fake name goes to: SLOSHED (who, incidentally, did NOT vote for any/all of the above!) Thanks for playing and don't forget to vote tomorrow/in July!
