Tried this at one of Bayless's restaurants. It's made with cucumber, but don't let that faze you, it's outstanding and refreshing. Here it is, drink up!

Summer Margarita

Ingredients

½ of an 8-ounce (6-inch-long) cucumber, peeled and cut into thin slices
¾ cup good-quality blanco tequila (we use Milagro blanco for this at our restaurant)
½ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup simple syrup (see below)
Cucumber slices for garnish, or cilantro can be optional

Directions

In a blender, combine the cucumber, tequila, lime and simple syrup. Blend until the mixture is as smooth as you can get it. In a cocktail shaker, combine half of the mixture with 8 to 10 ice cubes, cover and shake for a full 15 seconds. Strain through the shaker’s top into 2 martini glasses. Garnish with cucumber slices (I usually cut a slit in each slice and impale one on the side of each glass). Or garnish with cilantro!!!
Repeat the shaking with the remaining margarita mix.


To make simple syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar with one cup water and a tablespoon or two of fresh lime juice. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Cool and store tightly covered in the refrigerator

Take 1 large tea bag, boil in pot on stove top until water is dark brown.

Pour into gallon pitcher

Add 2 cups of sugar.

Refrigerate.

Add ice and drink.




IF it alcohol you want.......

Go to nearest convenience store, buy case of Bud Lite, and enjoy


If you want a mixed drink,

Fill cup 1/4 with Southern Comfort and the rest with Mountain Dew.

Also, have been told Red Bull and Vodka is good, but I prefer dark liquor.

No hating, Patriot. I just haven't seen a party ball in a long time.

Maybe I'll have Gator pick me up one at BB & Beyond. :D

Erdbeerbowle (for 2 -3 bottles)

Ingredients
2 lbs strawberries
3 1/2 ounces sugar
2 lemons
750 ml white wine
750 ml sparkling wine

Wash strawberries, remove stems and cut in half. Put in a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar. Wash the lemon in warm water and peel off thin strips of rind with a sharp knife. Finely chop one peeled lemon rind strip and add the lemon juice and chopped rind to the strawberries. Refrigerate.

After two hours (the sugar should be dissolved) pour off the resulting strawberry juice and put to one side. Pour wine on the strawberries until covered and refrigerate further for 2 hours. Shortly before serving add the strawberry juice, remaining wine, and sparkling wine and decorate the bowl with remaining lemon strips.

Southern Comfort is not a good mixing whiskey. It is best enjoyed directly from the bottle, in swigs. Or, if you have company over and they want some, you can pour it into shot glasses.
