My favorite summer drink:

Sometimes known as an orange fizz, sometimes called a nursery fizz, I like to think of it as sort of a non-alcohol mimosa (a shamosa?)...half orange juice, half ginger ale (usually diet Canada Dry, sometimes the cranberry version), and ice. Better than either ingredient by itself, refreshing, reasonably good for me.

Of course, there's always iced tea in the fridge too but, despite spending most of my life in the South, I just can't abide sweet tea. Even with lemon. Shoot, if I wanted lemonade I'd make it.

Speaking of drinks, I just bought a brand-new aloha shirt to add to my sizeable collection, covered with little martini glasses. Cooool! (and cheap...even cooler!)

Omg, that is one of my favorite drinks too, since I don't drink alcohol... I used to do the cranberry version a lot when I worked at the caterers... now sometimes at the bakery I'll grab some OJ and ginger ale and make it there!

Oh well, of course I do drink, but not during the day (not much, anyway). I certainly appreciate a bit of wine...but 'If anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am not drinking any ***** Merlot!' :D
