Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Since I recently turned 21, I have been trying a lot of different drinks to see what my favorites are. I have tried beers, mixed drinks, martinis, margaritas, long island ice teas and various liquors. So far, I have just looked on a drink menu at the restaurant and picked out something that looked good, but now that is getting expensive. I want to try and make my own fun drinks (and it will also help cut down on costs)

When looking around for recipes, I found this site, Thebar.com This site offers tons of drink recipes for all occasion. It is very easy to use because it sorts the recipes by type, occasion, brand and quick drinks. It is also very helpful because it shows the drink pictures next to the recipe so you know what you are trying to make. Once you are on the recipe, it also tells you the best liquor to use and where you can find the liquor.

This site really is cool and I encourage you to go and check it out. They also have an application where you can create an online shopping list and add ingredients to purchase for your drink recipes.

Also, let me know if you have any summer drink recipes of your own that are favorites. I am looking for something light and fun to drink with my friends throughout the summer.
