    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

    I've noticed that mojitos have become extremely popular the last couple of years.

    White wine sangria, great poolside drink. Pretty strong too!

    In a large pitcher put,

    Sugar slurry - 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 cup sugar mixed
    1 vanilla bean
    1 sliced lime
    1 sliced lemon
    1 sliced orange
    1 sliced pineapple
    1 large bottle of a decent white wine
    1 cup captain Morgan spiced rum
    1 cup brandy

    Mix all together ad let sit a few hours in the fridge and just before serving add 1 quart of club soda!

    I use a party ball!

    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.

    Fill a glass with ice. Then fill it with scotch.
