The start of the summer is upon us and you know what that means: time to bust out the linen shirts and chancletas for daytime debauchery. However you don’t want to be that guy who is wasted before the BBQ or brunch are done. We put together some tips to keep your summertime drinking sane yet still fun.
At the Baseball Game
Beer is always a good choice while watching pelota, whether you’re behind home plate or parked on your boy’s couch. As long as you’re not pounding ‘em back, you should be able to maintain a nice buzz from start to finish. If you’re at a stadium, you’re pretty much at the mercy of the vendors and their exorbitant prices. However, most stadiums have stepped their game up lately, serving local craft beers to please more demanding palates. If you’re willing your team to victory from your Lay-Z boy, we recommend the following beers to wash down your nachos and brats: Blue Point Toasted Lager, Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale and Troegs Sunshine Pils.
At the Beach
Nothing says summer like going to la playa. Bikinis, drinks and sand in unmentionable places are all but guaranteed. When it comes to partaking at the beach it really is best to keep things light. The hot sun and alcohol are like Jay-Z and Solange in an elevator – mortal enemies. With that in mind, take a long, leisurely sip of the classic Gin and Tonic. Light and effervescent, the G & T is a great drink for a summer day. For a fun twist, we recommend Bombay Sapphire East that uses Lemongrass for a refreshing citrus kick.
