Here's a question for a summer Sunday: what is your favorite summertime beverage, alcoholic or not?
Last summer I started working on concocting my perfect summer libation. I know I want lime, mint, vodka, and ice, but I don't want it overly sweet (so not a mojito), and I don't want a bitter aftertaste (so not a vodka and tonic). I've been experimenting so far with seltzer water, ginger ale, peppermint schnapps, and creme de menthe among other things, but still haven't found just the right combination.
Of course, all of this experimentation has required repeated and extensive testing!
So, what's your favorite liquid relaxation to beat the heat?

The Bonddad Economic History Project
At the beginning of 2012, I decided to start looking at the actual, statistical history of the US economy starting in 1950. The reason is simple: to find out what really happened. So, when you see title of a post that begins with a year such as 1957, followed by "employment" or "Fed policy: you know what it's for. You can also access the information by typing in BE for Bonddad econ and a year to find information on a particular year.
Here is a link to pages that contain links to all the posts on the years listed.
