Aside from beer and wine (I make my own and got that lot covered) and hard liquor, what are your favorite summer drinks? 

I wanna try something new.  Mostly interested in mixed drinks.  Any good ones with kiwi?  Recipes appreciated.  And I haven't met a Mai Tai I didn't like.

Lemonade or iced tea/lemonade. (I was drinking this before Arnold Palmer's name got attached to it.)

Just don't forget to squeeze some lemon juice inside + putting pieces of fresh lemon in the glass and really lots of ice!

Champagne Sangria:

Dice some green apple, ripe mango, and oranges. Set that in a very large glass jar with a lid, and marinate with 1 btl peach cordial (Bols) and 3 btls white wine without oaky flavors.
Next day, fill 1/3 glass with that mix, add ice to fill the glass, and fill the rest with champagne.
Thank me soon tongue

Here's another one I like in summertime:

Mix 3 parts Prosecco + 1 part Aperol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aperol) and serve with ice and a peace of fresh orange in a glass. smile Enjoy!

Adult beverage? Mojito.

General beverage: Lemonade, made from fresh-squeezed lemons, with less sugar than most people like.

One-third ice-cold limeade to two-thirds cold beer - hefeweizens or porters work for me. Nothing over-hopped.

Lots better than strawberry....

Unsweetened ice tea with lemon.
Ask for that in the south, observe horrified reaction from your host or waitstaff.

Interesting. I've always used lime, but lemon sounds like a good idea.
