Ten on Tuesday | Summertime Drinks.

Carole’s prompt this week has us thinking about our favorite summertime drinks. Here’s my list:

These first four are actually my favorite drinks in any season (and I couldn’t make a list of ten without including them):

1. coffee.

2. red wine.

3. water.

4. gin cocktails, but the tonic and lime, or maybe a dash of rhubarb bitters, makes it special for summer.

and once the temperatures start to rise, I add in these:

5. white wine, especially sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio and picpoul de pinet.

6. beer, Sweetwater (brewed locally) makes a bright, summery IPA that I’m loving right now.

7. frozen margaritas.

8. iced tea with lemonade, also known as an Arnold Palmer; it’s also really good with Tazo Passion Tea.

9. white wine sangria.

10. iced coffee.

    I'd drink anything on your list (except maybe the beer). Summer is the time for refreshing a crisp. Bitter quenches thirst better than sweet, which shows on your list. Here's to you. clink

    I've never heard of rhubarb bitters and got quite excited when I found a recipe to make it myself, but my stock of cinchona bark and angelica root is running low. đŸ˜‰ I did find some at Amazon and thank you for making my g&t extra tasty this summer!

    I love ice tea with lemonade, and am waiting for peaches to be more reasonable so I can add them to sangria-love summertime drinks.
