The Sippin’ is Easy

By Ethan Kelley


Summer welcomes laziness that somehow seems necessary. Sitting poolside or out on the porch, your drink needs to be cold, accessible, and fantastic. A two ingredient cocktail, which we can correctly refer to as a Highball (or a Solo cup special) is perfect for these moments. However, we can go a little beyond the standard rum and Coke or Gin and tonic. The directions are simple, pour as much of the booze as you require, over ice, and top with your chosen mixer. It will stir on its own as you shuffle back to your lounge chair. Afterall, we still love the good stuff. Try these on for size this summer season.
