Gin & Tonic: Short or tall, with regular or diet tonic, this sparkling concoction must be served with fresh limes—and in my opinion, many of them.
Suggested Spirit: Frederick’s McClintock Distilling’s Forager Gin
Long Island Iced Tea: It’s the pack-a-punch combo of gin, rum, tequila, vodka and triple sec that makes this drink. A couple of these and you won’t care about the daily heat index.
Suggested Spirit: Stevensville’s Blackwater Distilling’s Sloop Betty vodka
Hurricane: Imbibe a few too many of these crimson concoctions of light and dark rum, fruit juices and grenadine and you’ll definitely feel like you’ve been hit by a Category 5 storm.
Suggested Spirit: Lost Ark Distilling Co.’s Lady Anne White Rum
