The perfect summer drink?

I'm calling local bars and asking them to make me the perfect summer drink for a LIVE story. Any suggestions? Who should I call?

It can be specialty drinks the bar already makes, or a new concoction they've just created. I'm going to run the recipes in next week's LIVE.

And no, mojitos don't count.

However, I did hear from Mojito Steve that Vin in Towson makes a pretty delicious mojito. Anybody had it there? It costs $10. That sounds like a lot to me, but sometimes you've gotta pay top dollar if you want top quality.

call ivars @ capt larry's.

Sam-I know mojitos don't count BUT...Woody's Rum Shack in Fells Point has a Mango Mojito that truly is the perfect summer drink!

perhaps you can also find a low-calorie summer drink, since a lot of them tend to be very calorific frozen drinks that are yummy but not so good when you have to wear a bikini!

sam, i have the perfect drink. its a secret recipe though, so if i tell you i might have to kill you

The Crawford...Named After Joan.

Over Ice
3 parts Grey Goose Pear Vodka
1 Part Ginger ale
Splash of Cranberry (for color, not taste)

Garnish with a lime wedge on a wire hanger. Great for chopping down trees and getting mad at the dirt

So this is a drink you have to make yourself, but it is divine--it's called a Southside, and if you call the Greenspring Country Club they will make up the mix for you and then you add your own liquor. It is uniquely Baltimore! It's a lemony, minty kind of mix that is perfect for summer.

I like the ginger beer mojito at holy frijoles. it's a bit cheaper, too, i think.

Orange crush at the new Ryleigh's is pretty smashin'!

That would have to be a tiny wire hanger, Steve.

Bobby, I'm willing to take my chances. Lay it on me!

Hey Don, check out Thursday's LIVE section. At your suggestion, I went ahead and included the mojito at Woody's.

Kramden, I called Ivars too. Capt. Larry's specialty is also in Thursday's LIVE.

Thanks guys!

MGD all the way BABY!!!!! Serioulsy, I thnk that belly shooter @ Baha are da bomb. Esp. after beer pong!
Dude, you down with sum chix at Baha on Sat? SICK yo.
