Hi Ho! Everyone! Your friendly neighborhood masked hero and self-proclaimed mascot here!
We Here at Theres Drinking To Be Done.com have been sitting in a hot and sweaty office while the infamous heat miser keeps cranking up that thermostat. We have come up with a list of our top favorite summer time drinks to keep you cool and refreshed while I figure out how to replace our AC unit.

The first drink on our summer time chill down list comes from Skinny Pete Bolstering his way to the top of the list with his near infinite knowledge of mixed drinks.

1. Oaxacan Old Fashioned:
1 1/2 oz Reposado tequila
3/4 oz of Mezcal (use Del maguey de Vida for best taste)
Mole chocolate bitters
Agave nectar

Drinks 2 and 3 come from the king of behind the scenes madness (GET HYPE Productions) Shan Cerrone and Rhal Noir. These drinks are referred to by them as their two signature dumpster fire cocktails.

2. Ratchet Lemonade:
One part Svedka Citrus Vodka
One part Bacardi Lèmon Rum
One part Sprite
Add lemon & lime frozen concentrate

Now drink number five on this list is my own unique contribution. Coming from my love of coffee and the need for adult beverages, this mixed drink will not only cool you down but wake you up.

5. The Valdese:
One part Café patron
one part Baily’s Irish cream (alcoholic is kind of a requirement)
shake but do not stir with ice
best served in chilled shot classes

Getting closer to the end of our list here (I figured out the AC only had to be plugged in and didn’t need to be taken apart – sorry guys). This next drink comes from the leader of this merry band of nightlife misfits, Zero Lives:

10. Born Too Slow:
Large Glass of Absinthe then
Drink 1 can red bull

With the AC unit now set to 68 and on full blast, we intend to imbibe these tasty cold refreshing drinks you wouldn’t normally see in the winter months. Stay cool Philadelphia!
