June 21: Summer Solstice

SummertimeReaders, you’re all fantastic, but I think I’m going to phone this entry in, for it’s the first day of summer, and from where I’m sitting in sunny Los Angeles it is absolutely beautiful. SSince it’s the Summer solstice and a Saturday to boot, I say get out there 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 and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Tomorrow: We go for something Wilder.
