It's H-O-T here in Charlotte and light and refreshing drinks are a must! I'm usually a red wine girl but drink more white in the summer because they are crisp and cool. Here are some of my favorite sips lately.
Leinenkugel Summer Shandy- Goes down like water! It's light and refreshing without being too sweet on the lemon. A perfect Summer beer, in my opinion.
Margaritas- DUH. My favorite recipe, better known as the Markarita, is our absolute favorite. If you are looking for something with a little more umph, these Margaritas on the Rocks are INCREDIBLE. I made a pitcher for Mark's birthday this year and the only complaint was that we didn't make more.
La Croix- I rarely drink pop, but sometimes I need bubbles and regular water just doesn't cut it. I love this stuff! It's the ultimate pool or beach beverage as it doesn't leave you feeling bloated like a beer does. The lime is my latest favorite. It almost tastes like a Bud Lime...without the Bud.
Apothic White- Again, white wine rarely makes an appearance in my wine glass, except for the Summer. This white blend is slightly sweet with really bright flavors.
