Orange, cranberry and lemon juices frozen into fruity ice cubes, then splashed with carbonated water.

Did this for Faceless two months ago and loved it. Kind of a pain if you only have one ice cube tray (I bought more trays just for this). Instead of carb water I used Sprite and added vodka. Delish!

I got this idea from Pinterest, but I've done a similar trick before with other drinks: freeze lemonade in ice cube trays. Make your favorite iced tea. Place frozen lemonade in glasses and fill with iced tea. Garnish with a thin lemon slice.

Ain't Yo Momma's Chocolate Milk

Submitted by: Ed Grivner

This splendid mixture of liquors that everyone has in the back of their liquor cabinet collecting dust looks like chocolate milk, but is far from it. My friends and I came up with it one night when we did not have the right ingredients for another drink. All of our ladies said that it should be a regular drink at all our parties.

Expensive if you have to buy all the booze. But since we had everything I gave it a try. This is strong but you can add milk, cream or half and half if you need to tone it down.

Nope, one won't do on a hot summer night. Make a blender full and kick back. After the second I didn't care how hot is was outside, my insides were cool and happy! :))))

Oops, above comment was for the brandy. But it is fitting here too! Oh, no driving when you make these!

Beer Margaritas

Who would believe that beer would be the perfect solution to eradicating fluorescent green margaritas? Well, it is! Best to use not-so-micro brews to avoid an overpowering flavor. Use the limeade can to measure the ingredients, and adjust with extra water if the mixture seems too sweet. Straining the pulp is always a good idea, unless, of course, you like pulp!

Nothing says summer like a good margarita. I too just got back from a vacation in Florida and came back to snow, so I totally agree with you. I can't wait for summer. This beer margarita recipe is really good. I add a half can of triple sec as well and it always reminds me of lazy summer days.
