It's summer, and despite my recent teetotaling ways, nothing beats a delicious summer drink. Here are my favorites
The Pimm's Cup
The best one I have ever had of these drinks was at New Orleans restaurant Bayona. Pimm's is a type of gin with herbal flavors blended in. There are variances to the recipe (ginger ale vs. 7UP), but this drink has supposedly gotten trendy in NYC in the last couple years. Still, it's really light and refreshing.
Better than a mint julep, this rum based drink is one of my favorites. Actually, I think it was the last drink I actually had about 2 months ago. Gotta have it made with actual simple syrup. I tend to order this with a Southern accent for some reason.
