Recipe for a Wet Woody

Summer is coming to a close, fast.  Before having kids and marriage, I used to spend many of my summer weekends in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area, where I owned a cabin.  I could have easily moved up there full time.....if it weren't for all that snow to contend with during the winter months, I probably would have.

A favorite memory from that time in my life and one I'm thinking of today for some reason, is hanging out on the patio at Gar Wood's on the west shore of Lake Tahoe.  After a long day of boating, hiking or just beaching it, a Wet Woody,  signature drink of Gar Wood's,  goes down really smooth.....too smooth sometimes and is quite refreshing.  I can just visualize myself taking in the beautiful scenery of the deep blue, crystal clear lake surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountain range while slowly sipping on a Wet Woody.

Today's 'Best of the Web' is all about the Wet Woody.

I know I have many pics of the Wet Woody's I've consumed in my time {which I cannot find at the moment}, so this one is from Google image.
