Elsewhere's Wish You Were Here cocktail for summer

There are few things more pleasant than gently frying your brain in the summer sun (with Factor 5 and a hat of course), so in the interests of public health Elsewhere offers this recipe for a snappy cocktail which might have you talkin' trash, but no matter. No one will remember anyway.

This we like because it is simple.

You will need some good quality tequila, limes and Kahlua. And good cold beer as a chaser.

To a shot glass containing an ounce of tequila add one and half teaspoons of fresh lime juice and the same amount of Kahlua. Wipe the rim with a slice of lime then knock it back in one hit. Follow up with a cold beer.

Get happy.

I'm recommending the Bar Mexico double disc as your soundtrack also.
