Ditto -- I'm a big fan of Italian bitters, aka Campari, and soda when it is hot. Quenches thirst like nothing else.

If you haven't see it, look at Campari's website. It'll keep you occupied cruising around look at who is drink what Campari cocktail and how to make it.

My wife's favorite standby is gin and tonic, with two large lime wedges, she loves the stuff. I have not really found a summer drink, which is funny because I live in central FL.

Sounds like you should drink a virgin daiquiri then

I drink beer or Crown and a splash of water, but I do that when it's hot or cold.

Hell, if I was where you are I'd be wearing out those drive thru daiquiri places. Try that in the bible belt around here.

Campari is a mainstay in my house. With or without soda or as an Americano. Liquore Strega is another favorite since we're speaking Italian!

Campari? I'll have to try it. Is it a sipping type drink or a thirst quenching suck it down type?

I like ice cold beer myself. I get too fugged up on the hard stuff as I drink them too fast.

Screwdrivers or rum and Coke. Hard to beat a Natty Light on the boat though. Yeah yeah, I know nobody likes Natty Light.

Spent a year in London and tried a Pimm's. Funny enough it was at the races at Ascott so I guess it was their version of a Mint Julip.

It was tasty.

My go to drinks are either Crowne & Ginger or Beer. Yup... Boring.

Since we're speaking Italian, a good, ice-cold lemoncello is frequently consumed as a digestive around here.

I'll have to try Strega, thanks for the tip.

my beach mix is as follows:
1- Bottle of Goslings Black Rum
1-Bottle of Mount Gay Rum
1-gallon pineapple juice
1-gallon orange juice
Add Grenadine until mix changes color (overall color is sunburnt orange)

Drink with moderation ..... its not for everybody!!!
