Summertime here is hot as can be, but you don’t need me to tell you that. When it gets that hot, people get lazy. We’re talking lazy all across the board, even down to what they are drinking. And who can fault that? When your brain is fried, it is just much easier to say “I’ll have a gin and tonic” than to internally debate whether you’re in the mood for a Pegu Club or possibly a Hemingway Daiquiri. Perhaps a Negroni or something a bit more Tiki. So the New York Times and Jim Meehan (of PDT fame) have combined forces to give us an interactive summer drink page. All you have to do is click and the page does the rest. It’s like cocktail roulette. All you’ve got to do is sit down and spin!
Also, if you haven’t gotten the PDT cocktail book, you really need to. It is rather fantastic.
