    Dave, that Blenheim does make for a good mixer. If you like it's heat, give Red Rock a try. It's another one that will smack you around.

    Sittin' out back this afternoon in the hot sun, and threw together a Patron Blanco with Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa Sparkling Blood Orange (3:1), over crushed ice, with a slice of orange, and some muddled mint. My first one was without the mint. The mint addition made the second one spectacular.

    I'll keep an eye out for the Red Rock. I definitely like a spicy ginger ale, and I've been mixing with the super spicy Jefferson's rye. By the way, that tequila cocktail sounds fantastic! Definitely trying that.

    Re: What cocktail are you enjoying Spring/Summer 2012?

    For me: Whiskey Sour. I started to try around, and now all my friends can't get enuff of it. They chose it for their EURO 2012 Drink. I mix it with 4.5 oz bourbon, 1.5 sugar, 3.5 lemon, shake it with 3 ice cubes.

    Does anyone know the classic recipe for a Mint Julep?

    Thanks

    Then, you should also look for Buffalo Rock. It is made and distributed in Birmingham, AL by our Pepsi bottler. It claims to still be made from a Civil War era recipe, although I seriously doubt it. It is bold, spicy, and dark.

    Cloudless, hot day. Absolutely, nothing that needs my attention (except, maybe the grass needs cut, but that can wait). Enjoying the feeling with a Corsair Gin and White Rock Tonic. Crushed ice. Wedge of lime. Nice.

    Whiskey sours with some cheap sweet n sour mix I found in the liquor cabinet....hopefully more planning and real lemon juice next time.

    Just finished Bernie Lubbers' book. Made Ms. Annis' Bourbon Sours for the family. Got mixed reviews. My only complaint ... the funny color that resulted from mixing the bourbon, OJ and frozen lemonaid.

    a JRPS 17yr Mint Julep on this sunny Memorial Day . . . don't know if it's sacreligel, but it's the best damn julep I've ever had.
    Correction: the 2009 WLW Julep I just made is the best damn julep ever - listening to Led Zeppelin IV on vinyl while sweeping my outdoors patio . . . holiday indeed!
