I'm bring the title back........

It's great when you're at the gym and you're about half way through your cardio and you pick up the pace. Hopefully that keeps up! I got up early this morning and went for a run in the Navy Yard. And let me tell you I picked a bad morning to go for a run, it was muggy as shit. Now I don't swear much on my blog so that tells you how damn muggy it was. After a very cool shower I was still sweating. Stupid running, I would have been fine getting up and having some coffee watching the news. But no I have to get all fancy and go for a run. Oh please!

If you're looking for a refreshing cocktail this will hit the spot!

Strawberry Vodka
Diet Tonic Water
Splash of Diet Sprite

It's very light and not very sugary.

Anyone have any good summer cocktail suggestions?

I'm sooo excitied I'm having lunch with my girl Sara today, we're going to Cosi which has the BEST bread! Whatever I ran already today, i can have two. No?

By the way today is my Thursday!!!

Mmmm. That cocktail does sound refreshing. I love Cosi (the hearty bread is my favorite), I live down the street from one and that can be a bad thing, especially when I'm in the mood for their smores...

now I'm thirsty :)

I've had at least one drink/day for the past 15 days, might have to make it 16 and try your little mixer!

Love the drink idea. I'm going to have to try it. I'm bitter because we don't have a Cosi in NC and I would love to try it after I checked out their website. DRAT!

I still love Mango Margarita's (be sure not to use too many mangoes or else it turns out more lie a smoothie)

1 1/4 ounces silver tequila
1-ounce triple sec
1 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 ounces simple syrup or sweet-and-sour mix
3/4 cup partially frozen mango, unsweetened (prefer individual quick frozen or fresh)

Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a hurricane-style glass.

It is hot as hell here in Upstate NY too. I haven't made it to the gym all week. Bless your heart for running!

I love a good mojito in the summer but I don't generally make them. My favorite drink is diet sprite, stoli raspberry with a little mint and fresh raspberry hanging out at the bottom of glass. Not fancy but refreshing.

um yeah, I'm definitely going to add that to the list for this weekends trip to the shore.
I'm a pretty big fan of miller light all the time, but if I'm going cocktail in the summer I like a spiked lemonade, citrus/lemon vodka and super "strong" crystal light lemonade mix (I won't dilute as much as you're supposed to)- maybe a splash of diet sprite. Just depends what's around. - but it's refreshing and strong!
oh and great job getting up and running in the AM - I did that yesterday, it was hot hot hot and super muggy - at 6am! I'm hitting the air-conditioned gym tonight! woo!

Guess who's back on the blog scene and remembered her login and password?!?!

Loved our little lunch today! Can't wait to see you all the time now :)

SBCVandy said...

I am a HUGE fan of the classic Gin and Tonic in the summer. Nothing more refreshing to me.

Libby said...

I'm just gonna lurk around your blog all day collecting new recipes for my bar, hope you don't mind. :)

Kimba Rimba said...

Lurk and drink away Libs!!!

Kerry said...

ooooo... that drink sounds perfect!

Susan D. said...

In the summer, I'm a classic gin & tonic girl myself. But, your concoction sounds tasty. I also love to use fresca as a mixer for vodka or gin.

jilly said...

Oh num that cocktail sounds delish!

I'm Cosi obsessed. I've been getting their bagels in the morning...such a bad habit!
