Great summertime cool-off drink, they ain't too sweet at all, and I make mine strong.
A close cousin to the Salty Dog, this one subs in lemonade for grapefruit juice.
Beer and lemonade, it’s ridiculously refreshing on a hot day.
The classic from Brazil. Cachaca is a Brazilian booze made from sugarcane. Rum works in a pinch, in which case you have the original daiquiri.
Before the daiquiri became a fruity blender drink, it was a simple cocktail served on rocks.
This is the official drink of Bermuda. Or maybe it’s not. The Rum Swizzle is. But maybe they should share the honor.
G&T, it just tastes like summer time.
This drink is an institution. It's the taste of the American South.
A little taste of Old Havana. Perfect on a hot humid day.
Bar none my favorite Italian cocktail. I love it before dinner; the bitter herbal quality of the Campari seems to stimulate the appetite.
This cocktail comes as advertised: some Campari, some soda. Oh, and a twist of orange peel. Beautiful on a hot day.
Not the coffee drink. This Americano's actually a less alcoholic take on the Negroni cocktail. It removes the gin and adds club soda. It’s nice for a nightcap or other times when you don’t want the extra alcohol.
One of the originals. A simple, satisfy cocktail that loves rye whiskey.
It’s liquor (whatever you like) and club soda in a tall glass with ice. It’s not rocket science, it’s a highball.
It is the lady you’ve looked for. Just try not to hear the lyrics to that song as you whip up a Pina Colada. And good luck.
I can’t really explain the name. But the drink is ecumenical.
Supposedly named after the Haitian president who was running Haiti in the 1930s. The cocktail is more or less the original daquiri, with the addition of dry vermouth.
The island take on the classic brandy sidecar.
Rye whiskey and ginger ale. So simple, and yet the spice of the rye together with the ginger ale tastes complex.
In the glass, it reminds me of the kind of sunrise that Cormac McCarthy describes in “Dead Meridian.” A martini glass works well here if you take it without ice.
