Some people love the heat, some people hate the heat but for me enjoying a cold beverage makes it tolerable. I loved the recipe given by “Milk was a bad choice” the other day:

“1 glass filled to brim with ice
1.5 oz gin
0.5 Rose’s lime
complete with ginger beer
add a sprig or two of rosemary”

Back in 2009 we also looked at some of your favorite summer drink recipes.

For me I have three favorites – first, for a cocktail, I love a simple gin and tonic with a splash of Campari. For a cold beer on a super hot day I find it hard to beat a Tecate or a regular Budweiser. Though I do also love the Dogfish head seasonal – Festina Peche. And a few folks have asked me how I survive walking around in the heat – it’s easy a raspberry slushie (the blue one) from the gas station at 15th and U St, NW!

So what are your favorite beverages on a hot day?
