This summer has involved lots of sun, fun, and, of course, booze. It was also a summer of being virtually unemployed, which has lot of implications, sure, but most importantly it means I still can’t afford nice booze. And so I continue to improve upon the cheap alcohol I can afford by infusing it. So here, without further ado, are the favorite summer themed infusions of 2013. Try them out quick before labor day gets here!
3. Strawberry tequila
Even those of you who don’t appreciate tequila (you’re wrong, by the way) can enjoy it when combined with strawberries.
Ideal mixer: Margarita mix
2. Pineapple Rum
This tropical infusion is so sweet it doesn’t even taste like alcohol. You can practically drink it straight.
Ideal mixer: Ice
1. Strawberry Basil Vodka
The summer’s hands down favorite, this infusion is a hit wherever you go. It’s interesting and delicious. In fact, it’s so good it tastes great even with cheap mixers, making it the ultimate drink of choice for the young and broke.
Ideal mixer: Sprite
