Gin and tonic or rum with any citrus (use light rum, less sugars, also I use Sweet and Low to lessen sugar which I believe helps cause hangovers).  Margaritas are hard to beat anytime.

Summertime drink:  Ice Tea and Lemonade.  There are some really interesting ice tea's and lemonades made w/various fruits.  These sound interesting to me.  Cocktail:  Don't really drink anymore because it affects my breathing.  Used to like Wallabedarn's at the Outback Restaurant, a peach slurpie type drink made w/peach vodka; Jack and Coke or Capt Morgan's and Coke or Myers Rum and Coke.  Used to like Whiskey Sours until the sour affected my stomach.  A good Marg can be hard to come by.  A few wks ago, my husband ordered a Strawb Dac and it was the worst I had ever sipped.

I like Mai Tais. They're tasty and refreshing - with all the tropical fruits and color making it a very summery drink.

They're also rum based, and rum is my favorite spirit!

Since I love cucumber, I'll suggest cucumber cooler. Some of Hong kong's best cocktail bars served this one, the reason why I loved this drink. It is consist of cucumber, sliced crosswire, garnish, fresh thyme leaves, vodka nad simple syrup. It will really help you ease the thirst brought by summer =)

Two things I can't live without in summer: A very cold beer (German preferably)  or a delicious Spanish Rueda white wine.  Also served very cold!  Yum!

But when I'm craving something sweeter, a "Tinto de Verano"  is my first option.

Y olé!
