Tasty Summer Drinks: Beer, Bloody Marys & Margaritas

It’s almost that time to grab your towel and enjoy the summer sunshine while lounging poolside with your favorite drink. If you are looking to change up your usual go to drink, here are some of the best alcoholic beverages that are perfect to sip on during the summer months.


Beer and summer just go together. Drinking a beer while chilling by the pool or on the beach is always a good combination, but keep in mind that not all brews are the same. Some beers are better to drink in the summer than others. It is always a good idea to go with a light beer, like an ale. Watermelon beer has become quite popular and is refreshing for those hot days, especially when you add a watermelon wedge to the mix. If you are looking for a more citrus taste, orange blossom beers or really any crisp and fruity beers go great with lemon or orange wedges. It is an acquired taste, but sour beers are also an ideal choose for summertime.
