10 Cold Infusions You'll Want To Get Your Lips On This Summer

There are two ways to tell that summer is upon us: the rising temperature and 1000% increase in cold beverage consumption. I still reminisce fondly of coming in from a long day of playing outside to a cool glass of iced tea. That beautiful pitcher filled with what I believed was the sweet nectar of the gods was the perfect way to say goodnight to the day. However, as good as my mom's home-made tea was, I needed more variety. I had what I think everyone would agree was an abnormally refined pallet. Here are 9 delectable drinks you should treat your OWN pallet to, you beverage connoisseur, you.

1. Arnold Palmer. Starting the countdown is this classic tea/lemon hybrid. Not only was Palmer good at golf, he was a genius combining something sort of sweet with something not so sweet. Learn how to do it yourself!

If you wanna spice it up, add Absolut Vodka, Jim Beam Honey Bourbon, Makers Mark.

2. Honey Limeade (Honey, Lime Juice). Second on the list will give the Arnold Palmer a run for its money in the sweet/tart department. Down one of these after being in the sun, or sip it outside while your get your tan on. Either way, you've got to try it.

If you wanna spice it up, add Bacardi Limon Rum, Grey Goose Vodka.

 3. Boston Iced Tea. Insert clever Boston Tea Party commentary here. Get the recipe over here.

BJ's

If you wanna spice it up, add Limoncello.

6. June Bug. Ginger ale, sherbet and grenadine? I’d do anything to have one of these right now. Especially since it's... June, and all.

If you wanna spice it up, add Grey Goose.

10. Cherry Limeade. You can get these from Applebee's, and they're actually good from there. Can you imagine how much better they taste when you perfect it at home?

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
