Extreme on the taste list

I ran out of beer!!!

Since my new roommate moved in, we've been keeping the house crazy hot again. I think it's somewhere in the low 80s in here right now, and I have to admit I'm sweaty.

I just determined it's cooler outside than in, at 7:10 p.m., and so I've opened the house right up.

But the dearth of beer is problematic.

I've broken out the big guns: cherries preserved in rum, mixed with simple syrup and seltzer. Iced.
