Summer Cheer(s)

Signature drinks are nothing new.  But over the last year or so, there’s been a welcomed trend back to the classics.  Dirty martini or Scotch on the rocks?  With summer finally here, I thought I’d share three of my favorite classic summer libations to tempt you…tradition with a twist.

MOSCOW MULE: splash of lime, 1 part vodka, 2 or 3 parts Ginger Beer (preferably Cock N’ Bull or D&G Old Jamaica Brands), mint garnish.


PIMM’S AND LEMONADE:  1 part Pimm’s, 2 to 3 parts lemonade. Garnish with one or more of the following: orange, lemons, strawberries, cucumber (my personal favorite) and mint.

Glasses Pimms Cocktail

THYME INFUSED GIN LEMON DROP: 1 part Gin, 2 or 3 parts Lemonade, Thyme sprig
