Tequila and tonic is delicious and super refreshing.  Mix it exactly like you'd mix a gin or vodka and tonic.

The Midwest (Shopko, the Packers hometown store) is really awesome based on drink infusions.
A $30 infusion pitcher from a "this day only" national website notification was $8 in store. Add to the awesome "today's curds" available right across the street.

Shopko rules when bringing in Chinese crap before it really becomes a theme.

If you've got a seeded watermelon and a pulping juicer (i.e. NOT a vitamix), feed the watermelon into the juicer.  It deals with the seeds expertly, and you've got a refreshing drink that goes well with vodak.

What you need to do is get yourself a cooler, preferably one of those with a spigot on the bottom. Pour in a bottle or two of Everclear, depending on the number of people you're having over. Then add in some lemon lime soda - you're going for a 2:1 ratio of soda to Everclear.

Then, dump in a gallon or two of ice cream - you can go with vanilla if you're boring, but I prefer mint chocolate chip. Once again, the amount depends on the number you're serving.

If you live in the Northeast, then Edy's Ice Cream Outshine bars are the best multi-purpose summer party treat.  They're pure frozen fruit pulp or juice (depending on which fruit).

For kids, just hand them out.

For adults, mash up two of them with a potato masher and add a couple ounces of rum, vodka, whatever.  Mmmmm.  Adult slushies.

Really all you need is a powerful blender and let your creativity lead the way.

I like to snow-ify a pitcher full of ice, and add a little cran-apple juice to make it fluffy half snow cone half slushy kind of thing. Cold, just mildly sweet. Or lemonade, or a little of each.

Also will do it to make a coffee drink for breakfast.. I'll put like half a cup of coffee in there, a cafe latte flavored greek yogurt, a couple of spoons of powdered chocolate flavored ovaltine and some milk and ice, grind it up nice and smooth, easily as tasty as your typical coffee place iced capp.

Purelilac: Lemonade and vodka



I take the glass and run the lemon around the rim then dip the rim in sugar like that other drink that uses salt.

Sometimes we make the lemonade slurry (of sugar and fresh lemon juice) and add seltzer instead of water then add the vodka.

Recently I did this: Make strong coffee. Steep with a few peppercorns, cloves, a small dried chili and a cinnamon stick. Sweeten to taste, and let cool. Mix with soda water and you have coffee soda. You want the coffee to be pretty sweet before adding it to the soda.

My wife asks me to make White Gazpacho often during the summer. It just uses a little boiling the night before to blanch almonds. It's cool and refreshing. And from Texas Monthly magazine, of all places.

I know it's not alcoholic, so have a cold beer with it.

There's this fruit punch my parents make for 4th of July that's pretty good.
Not much to it:
2-liter bottle of ginger ale
One of those big cans of pinapple juice (the kind you need to an opener to poke holes in to open it.)
Can of frozen Orange Juice Concentrate.

Just pour it all in a punchbowl. When the OJ concentrate has melted, it's ready to serve. Add ice and you're done.

Korean food has great side dishes of cool or room temperature veggies, so go with that.  Pickled cabbage, parboiled then sautéed watercress with garlic, and the rice cooker won't heat up the kitchen too much.  Add to that a nice piece of fresh wild salmon seared in the skillet, and that's dinner.

Cocktail?  Gotta be the Paloma, tequila and grapefruit soda, with a slice of lime.

I grew up eating homemade ice cream. My grandpa always made the best. He was allergic to chocolate, so he experimented with a lot of different flavors. He had some peach trees in his yard, so he would make fresh peach ice cream. Everyone's favorite was his peppermint ice cream, though. I've been making it for years now based on his original recipe. You can use the kind of ice cream maker that takes ice and rock salt or the kind with the frozen bowl. Either works, but I like the ice/salt ones a little better even though they're more work.

I've never really measured, but for a 2 quart ice cream maker, I believe I use about 5 cups of whole milk. You can use cream or half and half, but it really isn't necessary. In my opinion, the whole milk gets the consistency perfect. I'm a fat guy and I like my ice cream, but even I don't see the need for using heavy cream here. This is rich and delicious enough without it. Next, you need some good peppermint candies. NOT the hard candies, but the soft ones that are kind of like after dinner mints. If you were to eat one, it would kind of melt in your mouth. They're sort of barrel shaped, rather than disk shaped. You can generally find them at any grocery store, but the brands vary. Use about 30 of them (usually about a whole bag), but you can adjust according to your own tastes. I usually pour the milk in a blender, then add a bunch of peppermints and let them sit for a while. They will dissolve quite a bit. You do NOT need to add any sugar. The sugar from the candy is all you need. Add about half a teaspoon of vanilla (again, your tastes may vary). Blend until very smooth, then pour into the ice cream maker and go.

This step is not strictly necessary, but it gets you the best texture. If you're using the ice/salt type of maker, then run it until it finishes. When it's done, cover the top with more ice and then put a towel over it. Let it sit about 20 minutes, then go for it. If you're using the frozen bowl type of maker, run it until it's as firm as it gets, then cover the bowl and put it in the freezer about 20 minutes.

In my opinion, this is the best ice cream ever. Better than anything I've ever had from any store or even any specialty ice cream place I've ever been to (and I've been to quite a few).

Drinking Vinegar aka "shrub" or "Sharaba" is surprisingly good. I had heard of them but never tried them until last year. They are, as they sound, vinegar BUT before you drink it you add some sweetener and fruit or herbs or both or, well, whatever. After aging it in your fridge for about a week, you fish out the fruit (which you can eat as a snack) and strain the vinegar into a clean bottle, pour some into your glass, top with chilled soda water and drop in an ice cube or two. It's surprisingly refreshing, supposedly healthy and a lot tastier than they sound.

I think it was a food thread last year before I tried them that I asked about them here and someone said they had drinking vinegar before and liked it. I strangely trusted them, made a watermelon version and now I agree they are tasty. I should make more.

Do not fret, dear Fark drunks - you can add booze. Apparently there's an entire category of mixed drinks based on Sharaba/Shrubs, but I've not tried any of those. Yet.

Juice from 12 lemons
1/2 cup honey
1 cup water
12 - 20 mint leaves
Fresh strawberries

Make a syrup from the honey and water by bringing it to a boil and simmering until it loses about a third to a half of its volume
When it just reaches a boil, toss in the mint leaves
When the syrup is the desired consistency, remove from heat, fish out the mint and let cool to room temp
Juice the lemons into a 2 quart pitcher
Add syrup
Fill the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water

Place 5 - 6 fresh strawberries and some crushed ice in a tall glass
Muddle until the berries are completely mashed
Fill the rest of the way with the lemonade

Super easy no bake Lemonade Pie...an old school seventies dessert passed down for generations:

Graham Cracker crust (you can buy one or you can grind up a pack and a half of graham crackers with a stick of melted butter and press it into a pie tin)

Then in a big bowl with a big ol' balloon whisk mix 1 large can of frozen Raspberry Lemonade Concentrate, one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk and one regular sized container of coolwhip.  Whip that sucker until it's a beautiful smooth creamy pudding type consistency.  If you want to get crazy, throw some real raspberries in there or some friggin' coconut or whatever you like...then pour it into the crust and freeze it.

It's not too terrible for you and it really satisfies your sweet tooth, your "ice cream" tooth and your "rich and creamy" tooth all at the same time.

Get an lN2 storage Dewar with a liquid withdrawal unit and save a bunch of time.  My son did that for Father's Day.  The speed of freezing means minuscule ice crystals...the smoothest ice cream I've ever had.  From mix and fruit to the bowl in 2 minutes.

ebenbane: teenytinycornteeth: Super easy no bake Lemonade Pie...an old school seventies dessert passed down for generations:

Graham Cracker crust (you can buy one or you can grind up a pack and a half of graham crackers with a stick of melted butter and press it into a pie tin)

Then in a big bowl with a big ol' balloon whisk mix 1 large can of frozen Raspberry Lemonade Concentrate, one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk and one regular sized container of coolwhip.  Whip that sucker until it's a beautiful smooth creamy pudding type consistency.  If you want to get crazy, throw some real raspberries in there or some friggin' coconut or whatever you like...then pour it into the crust and freeze it.

It's not too terrible for you and it really satisfies your sweet tooth, your "ice cream" tooth and your "rich and creamy" tooth all at the same time.

Not too terrible? It's all refined sugar, and artificial junk. Lol.



Oh sorry. I didn't realize this was the all organic look down our nose at the peons food thread. I'll let you get back to your "blend everything with a quart of vodka" picnic.

how many guys named Cesar are there inCanada? They may claim it but I doubt they invented it. Has a Canadian ever invented anything?

Gough: endmile: This step is not strictly necessary, but it gets you the best texture. If you're using the ice/salt type of maker, then run it until it finishes. When it's done, cover the top with more ice and then put a towel over it. Let it sit about 20 minutes, then go for it. If you're using the frozen bowl type of maker, run it ...

Get an lN2 storage Dewar with a liquid withdrawal unit and save a bunch of time. My son did that for Father's Day. The speed of freezing means minuscule ice crystals...the smoothest ice cream I've ever had. From mix and fruit to the bowl in 2 minutes.


I actually have access to LN2, so you would think I'd have already tried this, but I haven't. I think the sound of the ice cream maker going and the anticipation of it being ready really bring back memories for me.

I've taken to making iced herbal tea. I'm a bitter taster so most tea is right out, but the iced herbal tea has no real tea in it so is mostly calorie/sugar free, cold, flavored water. I mostly make lemon, orange or mint.  The tea has a more complex flavor than just adding lemon, orange or mint extract to water. For hot weather I like the mint best. If you make the orange, most herbal teas are real heavy on the cinnamon, so it ends up as cinnamon flavored water rather than orange. Tazo has a good orange one.

My wife makes some mighty tasty chicha morada.  Get a large pot, put in pineapple skin and Peruvian purple corn, fill it up with water.  Add some cinnamon sticks and cloves and boil for a while.  Strain into a pitcher, stir in sugar and lime juice.  Serve over ice.

Goes particularly well with homemade lucuma ice cream.

A local restaurant makes an awesome gazpacho, the primary ingredient being cucumber.  No idea on the recipe, but its awesome for summer.  Its served in your standard soup bowl... but you could seriously put it in a cup and drink it on the go.  So refreshing.

A couple of suggestions from the homebrewing end of things:

1 - Iced coffee.  Brew a pot of high test black coffee and let it cool down.  Pour into 3 16 oz. swing top bottles.  The coffee should just come up to the shoulder.  Top off with chocolate milk.  Cap and refrigerate overnight.

2 - Charlie Papazian's New Joy of Home Brewing has a recipe for Vagabond Gingered Ale.  A light bodied but dark colored ale with fresh grated ginger introduced in the boil.  I bottled my latest batch on Friday the 13th under the label Triskadecaphobi-Ale and it is spectacularly refreshing.  The best thing after mowing the lawn and even better while watching someone else mow your lawn.

It sounds borrng, but vanilla ice cream.  Blue bell's "Homemade Vanilla" is especially nice, without that artificial vanilla taste. Two big scoops in a properly sized bowl, and a spoon to eat.

That's it.

Oh, then also it helps to get a frying pan, put some black currant and banana liqueur, and throw some diced bananas in there, and slather honey over them.  Cook until the honey starts caramelizing a bit, making just the least bit of crunchy texture over the bananas.  Then pour in some rum, cook for another 20 seconds and light it on fire.  Let it burn off, and then with a spoon, pour the mixture - including the liqueur over the ice cream.  If you have a a small bar cookie, like Peppridge Farm's Pirouetes (which you can easily make yourself with small cannoli tubes or the like),  it's a good time to put on in there.  Then take either a strawberry and slice it from the bottom up, but not cutting through the stem so you can splay it out and drop it on top where the honey is the thickest.  Alternatively, a few raspberries work out pretty well.  You can also substitute the banana for blueberries, pineapple, even mango, though you might want to play with the liqueur flavors to match properly.

So, yeah, pretty much just a simple bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Island Punch, recipe from Turks and Caicos

Mix equal volumes of pineapple juice and orange juice.  For real authenticity, use the stuff that comes in big cans.  If you are lazy, use pine-orange juice.

Add a shot of coconut rum to a pint glass of ice, fill most of the way with pineapple/orange juice and stir.  Then add a bit or grenadine (ca1-2tbsp), and top with a float of good dark rum.  Beautiful and tasty!

Without the rum, kids love it too.

Here in Western Washington, we have lots of hot coffee, wool jackets and caps, and covered pavilions.  On that day that the sun comes out, we undress and guzzle down as much microbrew as possible to cool off.  If there is any question whether it is warm or not, we just hop in the lake, the river or the sound and settle that.

I had a very bad experience with bargain gin that scared me off it for years. Then I met Tanqueray. Then met T 10.

Kids, don't skimp on the gin. If you can't afford good stuff, avoid it entirely and buy some cheap vodka instead. I read a taste test article on vodka, and the cheap stuff could barely be discerned from the top shelf stuff.

Of course, they didn't report on the hangover factor.

/WORST hangover ever from cheap gin.

naughtyrev: What you need to do is get yourself a cooler, preferably one of those with a spigot on the bottom. Pour in a bottle or two of Everclear, depending on the number of people you're having over. Then add in some lemon lime soda - you're going for a 2:1 ratio of soda to Everclear.

Then, dump in a gallon or two of ice cream - you can go with vanilla if you're boring, but I prefer mint chocolate chip. Once again, the amount depends on the number you're serving.

Pour and drink a delicious Green Goddammit, courtesy of naughtyrev.


Sounds lovely... malibu and mint chocolate chip ice cream in the blender has always worked magic around here... and by "magic," I mean it's some sort of magical panty remover.

Just another Heartland Weirdass: Thanks offacue!

The rest of yous can eat my ass.


Sounds less than refreshing... but what the hell, I'll try anything if you put a sprig of mint on it.

Speaking of mint, one awesome thing is to fill a refrigerator pitcher with mint, cucumber slices, and mushed limes.  Then pour it full of vodak and let it sit in the fridge for a coupla days.  Serve the delicious liquor with soda-water.  It is a truly beautiful thing.

Fruit cubes.
Take an ice cube tray. Put a raspberry, chunk of pineapple, mandarin orange slice, or fruit of your choice in each section of the ice tray. Fill tray with limeade, pink lemonade, guava juice... you get the idea.
Freeze.
Place fruit cubes in glass of chilled vodka. (Or lemonade or beverage of choice)
Enjoy.
