I’m really hopeful that summer is upon us. The Weather Channel people tell me that i can take the top off of my Jeep and leave it off for the next 5 days! That sounds like summer to me.
If you’re looking for summer sippers – and why the heck are you reading this if you’re not – i have three to choose from.
“Seize Soixante-Quatre blanc” is as much fun to drink as it is to order. There’s nothing like a touch of pretentiousness to start off the summer. And speaking just enough French to be annoying does the trick for me. Refreshing with just a touch of citrus, it’s a pretentious summer-time favourite in la Maison Oke. So are tomato plants.
Bottega has a new pink pinot grigio that is light and refreshing. How refreshing? It lasted 10 minutes at the summer BBQ i brought it to last weekend. “Bella”. And so pretty too. Wait, that’s what “bella” means.
Finally, don’t be fooled by the “Fresca” look of this vodka soda. SocialLITE does a fine flavoured vodka soda that at 4% is the perfect hot summer drink. There isn’t a hint of sweetness to be found – even in the Pineapple-Mango flavour. They are so good that you may buy these all this summer once you start. With only 80 calories, 4% ABV, and no added sugar it’s an easy summer pick.
