Warm-Weather Cocktails

What's Your Favorite Warm-Weather Libation?


Memorial Day is just a couple weeks away, which means the start of warm-weather grilling season is near! I love all the fresh flavors that come along with warm weather and cooking outdoors; everything tastes better when you throw it on the grill. But most of all, I love helping to man the grill with an icy cocktail in hand. A gin and tonic with plenty of ice and lime is my beverage of choice, while Katie has a soft spot for sangria of all kinds.

What's your alcoholic beverage of choice during the warmer months?

I second the ice cold Corona with lime, also ice cold crisp white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or a Viognier

I have three favorites right now...too hard to choose! Gin and tonics....love. :heart: I also have a mint patch in my garden (that stuff never goes away does it Roaring? ;) ) so we've been making lots of mojitos. And we just made a huge batch of homemade limoncello, so we've been drinking that over ice, or with club soda.

Flavored Mojitos! I usually make pineapple or mango or whatever I'm in the mood for. Use sprite instead of club soda and it tastes soo much better! www.shoesandjules.com
