Spring and Summer Draaaanks

FM's picks for seasonal drinks.

1. Honey Moon Summer Ale

A hint of orange peel for a citrus finish, and clover honey to go down smooth.

2. Red Stripe

Straight from the Caribbean Isle, this wheaty beer will take you to the tropics.

3. Magic Hat #9

Magically sweet but darker than your average summer beer.

4. Sex on the Beach1 1/2 part vodka1/2 part peach schnapps2 parts cranberry juice2 parts orange juice

The fruity flavor conveys the essence of summer—and every sip is just as good as if you were, truly, having sex on the beach.

5. Long Island Iced Tea1 part vodka1 part tequila1 part rum1 part gin1 part triple sec1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix1 splash Coke

Although this drink may bear no actual resemblance to the favorite (non-alcoholic) iced tea, practicality trumps all: drinking one of these is sure to get you hammered with the utmost efficiency.
