June 21: Summer Solstice

SummertimePeople, I love you, but I think I’m going to phone this entry in, for today is the first day of summer, and from where I’m sitting in sunny Los Angeles it is absolutely beautiful. So, since it’s the Summer solstice and a Friday to boot, I say let’s leave early and enjoy the start of the season.

And what better way to enjoy the longest day of the year, than by soaking up the rays and drinking a Sunshine Cocktail. According to some reports, this drink was created by the South Florida Pineapple Board to promote pineapple juice. Regardless of its origin, it’s a refreshing way to kick off your definition of summer madness.

Sunshine Cocktail

  • 2 ounces White Rum
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 splash grenadine

Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker, pour in to a chilled cocktail glass.

Tomorrow: We go for something Wilder.


Propose A Toast!
