For today’s cocktail, we’re going to dig back into our archives to revisit one of our favorite fancy summer drinks.

Cosmic Limeade

Sonic, for my foreign readers, is one of the best fast food chains in the United States. Mainly because of its drink list. You have an almost unending number of flavors and mixtures to choose from (over 160,000 according to Sonic). In fact, their choices are so large, they even put a major marketing campaign around it. Not only that, for a long time the Dodge City Sonic (hometown sonic of Cocktails, 365) had the unique honor of being the busiest Sonic in the world. I’m not sure if we still hold that title, but hey, we’re eager for accolades out in this area of the United States.

December 13, 2011 (Day 259) — Purely Delicious Creme de menthe, you cagey wench. You’re the menthol cigarette of the booze world. I’m not really sure what that means, other than to say that the use of creme de menthe can either make or completely destroy a cocktail. It’s all in how it’s used and […]
