I came home Friday and she looked at me and said, "Do you want a mountain climber?" At first I had no idea what she was talking about (a common occurrence with me ).

Then she handed me a drink. It's one part Absolut Citron, and 2 parts Mountain Dew in a glass of crushed ice.. I had quite a few this weekend. I'm a very light drinker and mostly my taste is for dark beers, but this is a very refreshing summer drink.

Sounds like the kind of drink that will sneak up behind you and coldcock you when you aren't looking.

Interesting. I had an Absolut/diet MD last night. I'll have to try some Citron stuff.

I Googled Absolut Citron and Mountain Dew and found a "Magic Mountain". It's way more diluted with added triple sec. Sounds way too sweet.

It's hard for me to take any drink seriously that has Mountain Dew as an ingredient.

I like a shot of Bacardi Apple Rum in a glass of Lemonade.

Mt. Dew mixed with the tequila of your choice is also very good.

I invented a drink, it's called a diaper.

It's a shot glass with banana liqueur, whipped cream on it with a pea sized bit of peanut butter on top.

It's yummy but hasn't been a great success.

Try it with bourbon (and a few drops of lemon juice) instead of vodka.

I did that a while ago, but the taste just was not for me.

When I was a highschooler my buddies and I got hold of a bottle of vodka but we didn't have any orange juice to make screwdrivers. So we got a bottle of Minute Maid Orange soda instead. Talk about foul ...

My favorite backpacking cocktail is the Snowbound: Fresh powder snow, powdered Gatorade drink mix, and Everclear.
