The Best Summertime Cocktail

I guess summer is winding down, but here in Savannah, it just means that school is starting, not that the temperatures get any less oppressive – at least for awhile.  This has been my go-to summertime cocktail.  Not only is it quite tasty, but it’s simple to make and have whenever the mood strikes!
Since it will be pretty warm for the next couple of weeks (and I’m sure we will make it to the beach at least a couple more times), I know I’ll be making this drink again and stretching out summer as long as I can.  Also great with a slice of lime.  Cheers!
Makes 2 quarts
