2013 Drink of the Summer

I know what you're thinking.... it's well into August and she's just now declaring her drink of the summer?? think of all those hot nights suffered without a signature drink to keep one happy and cool. never fear, the DoTS was established as soon as the snow stopped falling- so, May- it's just taken a while to make it internet official. but first, a re-cap:

Drinks of the Summer
2010- whiskey sour
2011- gin & tonic
2012- red wine sangria

and this year's distinct claim goes to the deliciously spicy Dark & Stormy. I first had one last July at a friend's wedding, but it wasn't until this year that I decided to start mixing them at home. i'm super lazy, so it's just Gosling's dark spiced rum, Gosling's ginger beer, 3 ice cubes, and a squeeze of lime. perfect for hammock laying and book reading, or whatever lazy summer activity you're prone to indulge in.
