[Photo by Tim Robinson] Nantucket is one of the Hamptons' biggest East Coast summer rival locations. When put up against one another, Hamptons VS. Nantucket, we would like to think that the Hamptons would come out on top. However, as a plus for Nantucket they at least have a drink named after them called, Nantucket Lemonade. The drink also features Massachusetts' official state berry, the cranberry. Hopefully the Hamptons will jump on this bandwagon and get its very own cocktail.Ingredients and directions, for Nantucket Lemonade, courtesy of iVillage, below:

INGREDIENTS: Punch bowl and glasses 5 cups lemonade, homemade or good-quality purchased 2 cups cranberry juice 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 3 cups vodka 2 cups chilled ginger ale 4 cups ice cubes Frozen cranberries and lemon slices for garnish

DIRECTIONS: 1. Combine the lemonade, cranberry juice, lime juice and vodka in the punch bowl and mix well. 2. Just before serving, slowly pour in the ginger ale. 3. Add the ice cubes. 4. Garnish with the frozen cranberries and lemon slices and serve immediately.
