    Margaritas, mojitos (my favorite in the summer), or my favorite basic cocktail is vodka and sprite or 7up with lime

    A couple of weekends ago my friend and I had a blast making new drinks. I got an IPod touch for my bday and there is a drink app on it (4500 different drinks). We picked a couple and went for it. Our favorite was the Lemondrop....yum. Are you looking for recipes?

    Misspam's house cocktail is a classic extra-dry Martini. We also enjoy mojitos and mint juleps. Another simple and yummy one is a Stiletto:

    Ingredients

    2 oz. Bourbon
    1/2 oz. Amaretto
    1/2 oz. fresh lime juice


    Fill a shaker with ice. Add Bourbon and Amaretto and lime juice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

    I'm looking for recipes to try at home. I'm immersing myself into the fabulous world of cocktails. So far I've been experimenting with just rum.

    Rum+Coke+Lime
    Rum+Tea
    Rum+Orange Juice

    This summer I've been drinking limeade, raspberry vodka and a handful of frozen berries with some ice in the blender.....soooo good!

I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    My brother and I made our own drink called the jollyrancher. It's basically watermelon flavored bacardi, cranberry juice, and lime... Tastes just like a watermelon jollyrancher, hence the name. Sooo good.:thumbup:

    ok I'm new and couldn't resist this thread. I'm a bartender; here are a few of my fav recipes for various spirits. I'll keep it simple, its summer and its hot, not the season to be working hard

    Dark and Stormy (love this)
    in a tall/highball glass
    1oz or rum
    fill glass with ginger beer
    and squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice
    garnish with a lime if you're feeling fancy

    My favorite vodkas are Stoli and Ketel One but during the summer Stoli Blueberry all the way. With it I make Blueberry cosmos, lemonade, mix it with peach rum (bacardi) and ginger ale, etc...

    Even if you hate gin (which on most occasions I do) this drink is amazingly refreshing, simple and perfect for summer. Not sure if theres a name for this, I came up for it when I was working with Bombay Sapphire

    4oz of Bombay Sapphire
    fresh mint leaves
    top with ginger ale
    stir with stirrer
    Thats it! no muddling (ugh mojitos, yes they're great but every bartender hates making them), just stir
