Summertime evenings often call for a tall cool adult beverage. I know I have a slew of favorites that have also made dinner guests exceptionally happy (and refreshed). So you can bet I'll be emailing Salon with one of my recipes. The deadline for submitting your favorite summertime cocktail recipe is, fittingly, "cocktail hour" on Friday, Aug. 10. Per the call for recipes:
"Submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include both a recipe and an introductory paragraph describing the drink's origins or inspirations, suggested food pairings, and most important, how many is too many. All cocktails will be evaluated within the following four categories: gin, vodka, rum and other."
