At 7 p.m. tonight, El Dorado Cocktail Lounge is launching their new summer cocktail menu with a special release party. They're doing it on their regular Tuesday "Family Night," which means you can try the new drinks for just $5 a pop (they're typically $9).

There's no real theme on the menu, save for the fact that all the cocktails are the type of beverages you'd want to slurp down after a long, hot summer day.

Here's a sneak preview of what the suspender and vest-wearing young men at El D have in mind:
