In the summertime, when you can't make it to the beach on a beautiful day, it may half-suffice to just go outside and chill in the vicinity of your residence, unless you have lots of enemies who like drive-bys. Here are 4 drinks that are solo servings if you prefer your own company along with the breeze.

Cranilla Martini
2 ounces Stoli Vanil vodka
1 ounce cranberry juice

Stir with ice, strain and and serve straight up in a chilled glass. Drop some cranberries in to garnish.

Peach/Mango Margarita
2 ounces tequilla
1 ounce peach schnapps
1 ounce sour mix
2 peach halves (canned with nectar)
1/2 cup fresh mango
Dash of grenadine for color

Mix all ingredients in a blender with crushed ice. Garnish with a peach wedge and a cherry. Feel free to add a little umbrella.

2 ounces gold rum
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 dashes of grenadine

Pour the rum and pineapple juice into a glass with ice. Add grenadine and let it sink to the bottom. Serve with pinapple, star fruit, or a cherry for decoration.
