My husband was "tired" of gin and tonics and wondering what else could be a refreshing summer drink. I poked around in the refrigerator and liquor cabinet for inspiration. I had just bought a jug of limeade at the supermarket, and the combination of lime, mint, ginger and rum turned out to be a winner. It's easy to make and is now his "new" summer drink. —zora
