Right now, a glass of cold water with a lime. Kinda wish it was a gin and tonic, though.

Beer man. Lots of beer.

Whiskey, neat, usually a good Irish one. Tastes better in this heat than a filling beer.

1/2 Lindeman's Framboise and 1/2 Perrier or any kind of bubbly water. It's perfect. Andrew's gin comment makes me feel like mixing up a French 75 though.

Freshly juiced watermelon, cucumber, and lemon.

Erik / July 6, 2012 9:40 AM

Hoppy Homebrew, margaritas, Moscow Mules

Iced tea and lots of it. Lady Gray, ginger peach, lemon green, straight-up black with sugar -- it's all good. When I'm feeling sassy, I have an Arnold Palmer!

Just bought some cucumber vodka!

diet Peach Snapple, pineapple vodka and a little OJ, and lately, apple cider (yes, the kind with alcohol)

Carlotta / July 8, 2012 2:24 PM

IPA's, 'fruity' beers/ales, mineral water, seltzer water, iced tea, in roughly that order.

Whiskey -- as per usual. Working rye and soda into the mix from being strictly on the rocks.

Whiskey and soda, okay, but whiskey neat is absolutely nasty in the summertime! Beer, man! Beer man! Beer!

soy chai w/ a shot of espresso.
