gin

simple suger

shake and pour over the shaved ice

Where exactly can one get this absinthe your guests so casually spoke of?

I would think that the cucumber-infused Hendrick's gin would be a better choice for the "cucumber & mint" martini.

That gin is so smooth it can be served, unmixed, up. With a cucumber garnish, of course.

And it isn't even my favorite gin!

My new favorite cocktail is gin, strawberry juice, lemon juice and seltzer with mint leaves.

Barbancourt Rum from Haiti is what we have on hand.

For soaking fruit in rum or gin, what about herbs or spices to add?

I am looking for an easy refreshing cocktail with herbs or citrus for our wedding, something that would be easy to serve to over 175 people. Thoughts?

For a Summer drink I would recommend the Caipirinha. This is the ultimate Brazilian drink made with Cachaça, limes, sugar, and ice. Very refreshing.

Nice mention for Q tonic! The best tonic out there.

I think a champagne cocktail is the perfect summer drink- especially with rhubarb or grapefruit bitters. Yummy and refreshing!
