Mash a few bannas with brown sugar and cinnamon (or what you like). Freeze and eat. Sooooo good. Also have to give a nod to Luigis Italian ice up thread. That stuff is awesome.

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.

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.

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.

Kirs on the deck - perfect.

Fill a wine glass with large ice cubes.
Fill 3/4 way with white wine (Chablis works well)
Add a couple glugs of cassis

Deceptively potent, hugely refreshing

There's also the lazy man's daiquiri.

Buy a Sonic Limeade. Add rum.

When my father told me about this, I was skeptical, but it's very nearly the real thing.

We buy Pimms by the case.    Fantastic summer stuff.

Pimms, ginger beer, cucumber slices, grape, lime, and mint.

Muddle with ice.

I'm also partial to the classic "snakebite":  equal parts beer and hard cider.  Now that good cider is becoming something of a thing, it's fun to experiment with all the varieties out there.

/Favorite so far: Harp lager and Newton's Folly green apple cider.

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.

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.

I also highly recommend running through the sprinkler on a hot day and letting some of the water go in your mouth. It's delicious.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
