Beating the Summer Heat


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 Learn a little something here, then grab a bottle of rum (and lime and sugar) and keep cool this afternoon.
