If it were possible to dissolve into the internet like The Little Mermaid dissolves into sea foam, a good option today would be Serious Eats' end-of-summer cocktail slideshow. I am a drift of peach-champagne foam, and I have no thoughts or concerns.

Euchh. Maybe it's just me, but the fig one sounds repulsive. Figs? Fine. Vinegar and maple syrup in a "summer" beverage? That makes my stomach turn.
I do love a bellini, though.
@olivebee I had a bellini for the first time a couple weeks ago! I now regret every time I could have ordered one and didn't.
@olivebee I think it sounds delicious, but it's definitely not a summer drink!
@olivebee I don't know about the figs, but apple cider vinegar and maple syrup (or honey, brown sugar, etc.) is actually a good combo. Add ginger and you have switchel, aka haymaker's punch. It's old-school Vermont gatorade, basically.
@SarahP I definitely think I would try it if you removed the balsamic vinegar and made it a hot winter drink. That's the only way I could tolerate drinking maple syrup. But then again, in the wintertime I will always choose hot spiced cider with dark rum.
@olivebee And with the seeds floating in it?
@olivebee That could be like a Shrub, which is vinegar based, but also kind of hard on the palate.
Wait, why isn't there booze in that bloody mary?
Enough with the cocktail virgin/whore dichotomy, okay!?
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll Seriously. Let's just admit all we want/want to be is whore and roll with it.
OR LIKE ALEX MACK DISSOLVES INTO GOO?
the little mermaid MARRIES A PRINCE and LIVES HAPPILY EVER AFTER i don't even know what you're talking about with this sea foam business
Thank yo for reminding me to restock on the makings for mojitos. We are as muddled mint, and to muddled mint we shall all return. Namu.

The cantaloupe Pimm's is right.
My new favorite cocktail is a Dark and Stormy made with homemade ginger beer. I bought rum with an octopus on the label for it and so far it's been a great decision.
@VDRE The octopus worked on me as well; they always do.
