June marks the official start of summer and here is a couple of our favorite dockside refreshments.
Rum and Tonic: Well, this may be a simple one, but it is about the only thing I drink. Rum, tonic, a slice of lime and you are good to go. My personal preference is to use diet tonic because zero calories and it has more fizz. Many times I have taken a bottle of diet tonic into restaurants as a mixer because for some unknown reason, restaurants don’t usually carry diet tonic. Also for this and similar drinks ALWAYS use a turvis tumbler filled with a lot of ice.
Barbados meets Cancun: For this one, you will need a blender with
a lot of ice and good horsepower.
• Three shots of Mount Gay Rum
• Two shots of Two Fingers Tequila
• One shot Grand Marnier
• Three teaspoons lime juice concentrate
• One teaspoon sugar
• Juice of Three limes
Mix all ingredients into a blender, blend until well mixed then serve in a double insulated glass over crushed ice. Very good.
