5 Things to Love

Great Summer Drinks

By Stett Holbrook


ONE OF the great things about summer is that you get to drink special, thirst-quenching beverages. Here are five classics.

Caipirinha: Mojitos are good, but too trendy. Order the Brazilian version and impress your date with your savvy cocktail know-how.

Greyhound: Vodka and enough grapefruit juice that it's almost healthy.

Margarita: On the rocks, with just Cointreau, lime juice and a good blanco tequila, is the way to go.

Mint julep: It's not just for the Kentucky Derby anymore.

Shandy: Beer and lemonade. A good afternoon beverage.
