The Worst Drinks Of The Summer

by Anna Lombardi · July 22, 2011

Summertime means booze-time. However, there are some drinks that just don't work in the heat, and some that just don't work ever.

1. The Salted Mojito

Take your classic summer mojito replace the sugar with salt and bam you instantly have a gnarley drink, a bad hangover, and probably a lot of drunk poses.

2. Irish Carbomb

Apparently I am the only person who does not even pretend to like this drink on St. Patty's day, but even if you do it is doubtful that you are throwing these boys back in the summer -- all directions point to sloppy. 3/4 pint Guinness stout, 1/2 shot Bailey's Irish cream, 1/2 shot Jameson Irish whiskey = 100% disaster.

One too many car bombs, and you could end up like this....

3. A Hot Toddy

In the heat is just as gross as walking through Manhattan in the summer with a winter jacket.

4. Cyril's BBC

I know that I am going to get a lot of beef when I say this, but Cyril's famous BBC (Bailey's Banana Colada) tastes like potent sun tan lotion! It is also just too heavy for me to get down. However, to say that the BBC is strong is a total understatement. Just one of these bad boys does the trick.

Yikes, unfortunately getting caught in the rain was a small contributer to me looking like a hot mess in picture, the rest is all the BBC...

5. Port Wine

Sipping port wine in the summer time is a great way to have yourself hanging over the toilet bowl at the end of the night.

6. Anything on fire

Especially jello shots, absinthe shots and the flaming asswipe (1 shot Absinthe, 1 shot Benedictine, 1 shot Jägermeister), should be left flame free. Just keep the flames away during the summer time.

You may "love" him now, but you also may wake up to find he is just another flaming asswipe...
