July is here. Almost time for a vacation. We're taking a family vacation this year. As in the entire family -- father-in-law, step-mother-in-law, sisters- and brothers-in-law and a whole pile of kids. Mother-in-law is even making the trip; at least about 30 people in all. And so you can understand why my thoughts have been turning to frosty adult beverages to sip on a balcony overlooking the ocean, amidst all the chaos.
I've been scouring the internet, looking for recipes to try on vacation. We're going to be there for a week so you can see I need many, many recipes. ;-) I suppose you could make most of these without the alcohol if you wanted to. But why would you want to do that? ;-) I'm looking for a few more recipes. Send me your favorite summertime cocktails. If I try them, I'll add them to my Summertime Cocktail Review after we get home. What the heck! Send in your favorite non-alcoholic drinks as well. I suppose there should be something special for the kids to have too.
