So... usually when I'm sitting out back for the short but wonderful Oregon summers, I love my big 3 bbq drinks. First is a gin and tonic, second is a mai tai, and you just cannot beat a nice cold cheap beer either for number 3. but I'd like to try something different, I have tried in the past some "summery" whiskey drinks like a whiskey smash and while good... for some reason they just don't do it for me. So, for the sole reason of starting a discussion, what other summer type drinks can you suggest???
Thanks!! also been reading about a flora dora. Drink is amazing just from a historical perspective.
If you’re interested in tropical drinks, I highly recommend Jeff Berry’s Potions of the Caribbean.
For starters, I'd also suggest:
Turns out that, so far this Summer, the drink I’ve been making most frequently is the Prescription Julep.
