Belvidere vodka, a splash of vermouth, 3 olives, and then shaken, not stirred.

Provence may not be as hot, but the French will say that their Pastis would hit the spot.

But just about any cold beer would work for me when I am sweating.

Just finishing my winter beers. Instead of a root beer float, here's a stout float with my oatmeal stout and vanilla ice cream:



After the stout, I've got 5 gallons of red irish ale and a Jack Daniels infused porter. Then I start creating "7 beers of summer", starting with a light orange pale ale.

Problem in the tropics is you never stop sweating. Just way too much heat to cool yourself with beer. Better to cut it with something, as Sarah suggests, so you can drink all afternoon and not dehydrate.

Hydration without intoxication...

My liquor of choice is Evan Williams bourbon on the rocks. IMHO it tastes as good as Jack Daniels and is 1/2 the price.

He could have just poured it in the glasses, but that would have been too easy......

A agree that Evan Williams is a good bourbon, and sometimes the price is closer to 1/3.

After almost a decade of being a teetotaler, on my 60th birthday I began testing the waters, but not swimming. My choice of adult beverage, a cold Corona out of the bottle no lime.

Ice water, for me. Delicious, cold, thirst-quenching, free...

For beer I'll take Blue Moon. For something stronger either Patron coffee flavored or Lucent Absinthe.

I am enjoying a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon in the evenings on this holiday week-end. Yesterday I drove out to a berry farm for local strawberries and they just so happen to have a very nice winery on the property (Greendance). As it is hot, I have been adding a splash of seltzer to my libation and making it more of a spritzer.
