the first day of summer

Summer Solstice occurs this year on Tuesday, June 21.  It is the longest day of the year which means the shortest night so party early!  Start with a delightful drink:

    1.5 ounces Oronoco Rum (a Brazilian white rum)
  • 5 wedges lime
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Crushed ice
  1. In shaker, muddle 4 lime wedges and sugar.
  2. Add rum, lime juice, and ice.
  3. Shake vigorously.
  4. Strain contents into a chilled martini glass and garnish with lime wedge.
