Best Summertime Drinks: From Kosher Liquor to Herzog Wine

Author: Mark Etinger

Summertime is upon us and that means a different way to relax with your alcohol. Save the heavy drinks till December - now you're going to be drinking light colored kosher liquor. Here are some of our favorite discount liquors to mix with.

First things first. Most summer cocktails consider fruit. It's sweet, healthy, and it soaks up the dregs of that kosher liquor to make you feel good after your drink is gone. The blend of sweet fruit juices and sour alcohol means that the sour mix is your best friend during the summer months. To make your own, choose fresh ingredients. Take 1 part sugar and 1 part water and stir it up. Add equal parts fresh lime juice and lemon juice and if you want, add a couple of egg whites for every quart for some foam. This is the key ingredient in drinks like the Margarita and the Daquiri. Garnishing with fresh fruit is a great idea. To make fruity drinks by the batch, look up an old punch recipe. Sangria made with Herzog wine and a hint of brandy is delicious and refreshing. But if you really want to try your hand at summer mixings with discount liquors, read on.
Herbs make a big difference. Whether you're mixing Mojitos or Mint Juleps, mint is great in kosher liquor. Take some fresh leaves and put them in the bottom of the glass. Add some sour mix and muddle them until the leaves begin to tear up. Finish mixing the drink and you will be surprised at its rich flavor.

But just because it's hot, doesn't mean you can't drink belly-warmers. Whiskey drinks like the Old Fashioned, made with club soda, bitters, whiskey and sugar, as well as the Manhattan, made with rye, sweet vermouth and bitters are great for the evening. The Sazerac, originally made in New Orleans in 1830 is made with Cognac, a splash of absinthe and club soda, sugar and a lemon. That's a seriously tasty drink. Another delicious dark drink is the Blood and Sand. Made with 2 oz of mixed or single malt scotch whiskey, 1 oz of sweet vermouth, 2 oz of red ale, and orange juice, you're going to enjoy it if you can finish it. And of course, perhaps the best summertime drink is the Bloody Mary. You can get creative with your garnishes - from cheese and sausage to pickled green beans and celery - but to really distinguish your Bloody, make it hot - grated horseradish and Tabasco are musts.
So whatever you decide to drink this summer, take pride in mixing and order your favorite kosher liquor.
