I have continued to notice that many girls at college bars drink cranberry+vodka. When I say a lot, I mean about 99% of girls. I really enjoy cranberry juice, but not-so-much the vodka part, however, when lime is added, it makes it a little more interesting. This is also known as a Cape Codder (maybe I like it just because of its' name too...).
The next drink is also made with vodka and similar to the Cape Codder. This time it is the Madras. It is made with vodka, cranberry, OJ and lime. A tip for this is to make the ice cubes out of OJ and cranberry juice. It makes the drink colorful and fun and doesn't water down the drink.
Next up is the Moscow Mule. I used to always be intrigued by this drink because it comes in a "special" cup (a copper mug to be exact). These remind me of my daddy because he usually orders these at the pool bar at the country club. A MM is made with ginger beer, lime juice and vodka. It's light and refreshing and perfect for summer.
Lastly, the Bermuda Rum Swizzle. This is the definition of the perfect summer drink. It has Gosling's Black Seal, Bacardi, lime juice, pineapple juice, orange juice, grenadine, bitters, With all of the juice, it is a bit heavy in calories but worth trying one!
