Summer Fun : Cool Cocktails, Grilling & Music

Ready for hot fun in the summertime?  Well, break out your BBQ grill, cocktail mixer and let's get started!

It isn't officially summer yet... But isn't it high time we get in the spirit of the season's hot, sweaty fun? Now's the time for spiritual chilling, for sloughing-off that dull winter skin. So check out these awesome summer cocktail, grilling and music highlights:

I first learned the word 'mojito' in Paris.  Mojito is the name of a super-cool dance club we partied at in the sleezy Pigalle section of Paris.  What fun!  Since then, the mojito cocktail has become one of my 'absolut' favorite drinks~ Here at the Original CyberLounge, we only serve you "mental" martinis. But if possible, I'd be slinking to your table on the patio with your beverage choice from the Food Network's awesome Top 10 Summer Cocktails list. My Absolut favorites are the Cape Codder and Mojito. But with eight more cool offerings on the Food Network's summer drink menu, you're bound to find something tasty to ward off the heat.

Summer grilling is fun, but it can also be dangerous.  So watch out for those flames!  Always keep plenty of water nearby. ~ While some like it hot, others like it sizzling -- everything from oysters and salmon steaks to turkey burgers and apple crisp, that is. Check out RD Living's menu of Summer Grilling Recipes and Food & Wine's Summer Grilling Perfect 10. They'll bring Sexyback to your backyard; you'll be smelling lighter fluid by the end of this post.

~ Now that you've got your drink on like Will Farrell's landlord [video] and your grillz as hot as Nelly and Paul Wall's [video], all you need is some smokin' new music. Check out these best bet new CDs coming soon to an outdoor sound system near you...

Jay-Z's got something hot cooking on the BBQ grill, too, it seems.  But as Concrete Loop says, 'What Beyonce doesn't know won't hurt her.
~ Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" (see Clay Cane's music review)... Clay doesn't exactly give Jay-Z's sultry pop protege a glowing write-up, but if you know Clay's hilarious way with words...

~ Jazz master Chick Corea joins fusion banjo wiz Bela Fleck on "The Enchantment," reviewed with big thumbs-up at Billboard

~ R. Kelly Flirts His Way to No. 1 Chart Debut, says Billboard, with his newly released album Double Up

~ If you're a fan of Big & Rich, stomp on over to Billboard for the music review of "Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace"

~ For jazz, see Billboard's music review of "We All Love Ella," featuring the songs of Ella Fitzgerald performed by Linda Rondstadt, Queen Latifah, and others.

~ And dance club diva Ultra Nate' is back with "Grime, Silk and Thunder"! Don't miss her visually arresting video for her cover of the Pointer Sisters classic, "Automatic."

I think that winter is much more better than summer! I have just gorgeous skin in winter time, cause I use special winter skin products. And my appeal is really important for me. So winter is the best! Ant I hate hot stuffy summer weather:(
