These first four are actually my favorite drinks in any season (and I couldn’t make a list of ten without including them):
2. red wine.
4. gin cocktails, but the tonic and lime, or maybe a dash of rhubarb bitters, makes it special for summer.
and once the temperatures start to rise, I add in these:
5. white wine, especially sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio and picpoul de pinet.
6. beer, Sweetwater (brewed locally) makes a bright, summery IPA that I’m loving right now.
7. frozen margaritas.
8. iced tea with lemonade, also known as an Arnold Palmer; it’s also really good with Tazo Passion Tea.
9. white wine sangria.
10. iced coffee.
