Wanna tag team her? I'll be happy to hunt her down and corner her...

Give me the list of ingredients, if you care to. Perhaps I can come up with something over here.

My all time favorite is Gin and tonic with lime,I also love mojitos and grapefruit juice and vodka. I just read somewhere that tonic water keeps mosquitoes away-I will have to give it a try sometime this summer and get back to you with the results! Another one of my favorites though not a cocktail is 43-reminds me of my grandfather who passed away in 2000-if I drink enough of it I swear he visits!!!

I actually use Cachaca in my mojitos instead of rum. I find it a much better fit.

Legend has it that tonic water was a British invention to help with malaria problems in the (then) colonies like India and Africa. It contained quinine in quite a high dosage in times gone by, but I think it has either had it removed or very much reduced in modern times!

My #1 favorite is a French 75, in a quart jar.

Buzz kill - I heard some bad news about my other favorites just today:

Large margarita = 600 cal = 4 sugar donuts
Pina colada = 980 cal = 6 battered chicken wings. fried
Apple martini = 344 cal = 1 pc of German Chocolate cake

and my standby summer beverage:

Long Island Iced Tea = 1043 cal = a large platter of onion rings

I heard this on TV so I can't swear to the accuracy of the 'buzz kill' info.
