The Well-Stocked Bar

It's hot here... way too hot in my opinion. Over the years we have relied on drinks of old to cool us down. We used to be the proverbial porch drinkers with an occasional evening on the stoop.  Back then, in the heat of summer, you could find us sipping on what we affectionately called the daiquiris of death  - served in a large bourbon snifter.

Or a Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic... occasionally served in a mason jar. I have since been banned from making them... in mason jars.

We love mojitos around mid-afternoon while on vacation - perfect for quenching ones thirst after snorkeling all day. Lately, we have tried out some new recipes. The Don Q muddled and frozen strawberry mojitos have been a frequent favorite. Refreshing and delightful; perfect for cooling down when the temps are nearing triple-digits.

Frozen variation of Don Q mojito

Adult milkshakes are another treat around here. I usually blend whatever ice cream we have on hand with one scoop of Christopher Elbow Dark Venezuelan  ice cream, Skyy Vodka and a splash of milk. Yummy!!!

The Cuba Libre is another staple on scorching evenings. Simple and delicious.

Might be time to venture over to the house of booze, aka Lukas Liquors, to replenish our supplies... or switch gears entirely and make sangria!
