What to drink this summer? [moved from South board]

Typically, for me at any rate, Tequila on the rocks with a squeeze of lime is sublime. But last summer, the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal turned me onto fruit and booze. It started with using pomegranate syrup with rum. Too sweet. Then they suggested making your own syrup using red raspberries. Oh yeah... now we're talking. But that takes time and you have to cook it. Back to the pomegranate... There is a product on the shelves called POM juice. In the produce section of a place like Ingles. So here is my drink for the summer...

2 oz amber rum (not spiced)
2 oz POM juice
2 oz soda
1 big squirt of lime juice
over ice.

Pomegranate had the same healthful properties as red wine.

What is yours?
