Favorite Summer Drink? (Alcoholic)

For me, it's simple, a modified cape codder:
Highball glass, fill with ice
1.5 oz vodka
0.5 lime, juiced
Fill with equal parts Cranberry Juice and Soda (Seltzer).
Light, refreshing, a bit of a kick but not too much.
What are you summer drink suggestions?
2 oz Gin (beefeater)
3/4 oz lime
build in a collins glass over ice, top with soda.
So tasty and refreshing.
There is this restaurant I use to work at that had the best martini I have ever tasted! I don't remember how much of everything you use but it consisted of Champane, Bacardi O and peach syryp with a cherry and it was delicous!
I also tend to drink more beer in the summer but lately I mix the beer with tomato juice. Delicious!
Don't have a name for this one, but I have been enjoying it the last few days:
2 parts Brandy or Cognac
1 part Orange Jc
1 part Pomegranate Jc (Pom Wonderful, or other)
1/2 part amaretto
2 dashes Orange Bitters
Shake with ice, and strain/up for cocktail, or serve on ice in a tall glass.
50/50 Carlo Rossi White Grenache and club soda with a twist of lime. Addictive, and a perfect complement to bbq pork. Dirt cheap too if you buy the 3 liter jug!
