When the warm wind blows,
it's time to mix up a cold, refreshing beverage.
By 4pm I'm ready to add the booze.
Have a favorite summertime mixed drink?

i also sometimes mix the various colors together and label THAT bag,
"Stephen Hawkings Mix" cuz, they will have to wheel you out of there!! ha ha!!
yes, although not the elegant cocktails YOU come up with, these can be fun to bring to parties, when everyone has to bring a dish. I sometimes bring along a footed punchbowl, filled with ice, to set on the table,
and set the shots all amongst the ice.
sure beats my potato salad recipe....
OH! another one i make,
is "Shake Your Peaches"
and it is peach jello + 1/2 cup Hot Damn + 1/2 cup vodka.
(pure hot damn in that shot is just TOO hot)
Serves - 6
Blackberry Thyme Margarita
Triple Berry Mojito
· 1.5 oz Bacardi Limón or rum of choice
· 3 of each: raspberry, blackberry and blueberry
· 2 oz lime "sweet 'n sour" (Combine equal parts of fresh squeezed lime juice and simple sugar syrup**)

Method: Place the mint leaves and lime sweet 'n sour in a highball glass with berries, then muddle for about 5 seconds. Add ice, rum and soda. Stir and serve. Garnish with one of each berry pierced with a cocktail pick and sprig of mint.
**To make simple syrup: In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil; simmer until the sugar is dissolved, 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.***
11 Fresh Blueberries
0.5 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
0.5 oz. Simple Syrup
1 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
2 oz. Veev Acai Spirit
In a collins glass, muddle 6 blueberries.

and pour contents (including ice) into a sugar-rimed rocks glass.
Top with remaining blueberries.
While this drink is most famous for being made as a blended beverage similar to a smoothie or slushie, it can also be made on the rocks. The most common way to make a frozen piña colada recipe is with four simple ingredients: rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and ice. To be clear, cream of coconut is different from coconut milk, and coconut milk cannot be used to replace the cream of coconut in this recipe.
* 2 ½ to 3 ounces of rum
* 2 ounces Cream of Coconut
* 2 ounces Pineapple Juice
* Ice to fill the glass
Pour all of the ingredients into the blender and blend thoroughly until smooth. Pour back into your serving glass, top off with a straw and a piece of pineapple, cherry and paper umbrella!
**You can use any type of rum you prefer, but the most commonly used is plain white rum (sometimes also called silver rum).
For a top shelf Pina Colada recipe, you can freeze pineapple chunks and then use them in place of the pineapple juice and ice. This will give you an even sweeter drink, since the flavor of the coconut and pineapple won’t be diluted by the ice. Traditionally, the drink would be strained into a glass after blending—pina colada literally means “pineapple strained”, after all!
