Around this time of year, I find myself with a dwindling supply of white wine in the house. The heavy, mack daddy cabs and merlots tend to gather dust (and cat hair) while I’ll occasionally reach for a pinot noir (after I chill it down). Although intellectually and professionally, I feel compelled to buck my intrinsic desires and drink whatever is “appropriate”, chardonnay tastes pretty darn good with a grilled burger (I support bucking tradition). Beer could be something else to choose, of the lighter, wheat and pilsner varieties but that’s a whole other habit. So I wonder… what do other people drink when it starts to get hot and sticky outside?
