While Lounging Poolside...

    Drink this. Even if you've never had the pleasure of making it up to Maddie's Sail Loft in Marblehead, Mass (the Yachting Capital of America), you can still drink like the sailors do with their signature "Thunderdome" drink. While we're not quite sure how many sailors actually indulge in this fruity vodka champagne cocktail, I can tell you from experience, I've seen this concoction knock many of manly men on the floor. Because while the drink may call for equal parts of fruit juice to alcohol, the heavy handed, scruffy bartenders at the coastal institution definitely don't always stay true to form... So even if you won't be making it any further East than Montauk this Labor Day Weekend, you can at least bring a (strong) taste of New England to you. [Picture via Rhodes]
