According to the calendar, yesterday was the first official day of summer and, here in New York it was really hot. But as we exposed ourselves to the breath-stopping heat, we were told today would be even hotter. Awesome.
After bravely venturing outside for lunch today, I chose a raspberry mojito-flavored lemonade to serve as a refreshing companion to my meal. What a great choice I made for myself this afternoon. As the summer really begins to kick off, I find it unavoidable to take myself on a tour of the classic summer libations to find which of the myriad of ice-cold options are out there to help me deal with the heat.
For now, here is a little history lesson on one of the summer season’s mascot, the Daiquiri, courtesy of Epicurious.com. Learn a little something here, then grab a bottle of rum (and lime and sugar) and keep cool this afternoon.
