@pandozas:  Mojito?

Why don’t you want it to be sweet? I’d absolutely hate a cocktail that wasn’t at all sweet and just end up leaving it or making my SO drink it.

What about a Pimm’s Cup?

There are a lot of variations, but it’s ultimately Pimm’s No.1 with some fizzy drink such as ginger ale or 7-up, and cucumber + fruit mixed in.

@SwedishPancake:  I had Pimm’s lemonade at a backyard wedding and it was super delicious. I think there were cut up strawberries in it too, delicious!

What about a press?  You could pick a flavored vodka that you like, my favorite is raspberry, but lemon or something could also be nice.  I like that they are refreshing, and not too sweet because the vodka is mixed with half 7-up or Sprite and half soda water.

Maybe some kind of “shandy” i.e., a beer-based cocktail?  The traditional shandy is just beer and lemonade/sprite, but there’s a pub near me that has a whole list of “Somewhat Shandy” drinks like a Blue Moon-based margarita and all sorts of beer/soda/juice/liquor combinations.

I’d recommend a Greyhound.  Simple and easy and refreshing!

Tom Collins? It’s gin (you can substitute vodka if you want), lemon juice, simple syrup, and seltzer. Very refreshing, basically fizzy alcoholic lemonade. For that matter, how about a spiked lemonade infused with an herb like basil or rosemary? Yum! 

I’ve also had some yummy cocktails made with liquors infused with tea. I would be all about serving a boozy twist on afternoon tea!

i want a cocktail now! Hey it’s 5:00, time for happy hour!

We did a pomegranate margarita – much tarter than a traditional or strawberry margarita, especially since we used pomegranate juice instead of a sugary mix.
