Late is better than never, right?  I always put off writing these things up, thinking that it’ll be an easy post to fill in a space I don’t actually feel like thinking about, and then a whole month goes by, and I feel pretty silly.

Last month was the first warm month since, oh, October, and the tall and rocks drinks really got the most play.  Also, the heat makes us lazy, and two ingredient drinks like the Fifty-Fifty and Frisco become much more attractive.
