Poll: What do you drink in the summer?

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?

  1. I love rose, Portuguese vinho verde, and a Radler (German) – pils and Fresca/Sprite mixed together – or a Shanty in England. Now THAT is refreshing and drinkable all day in the heat!

  2. Jessi: I used to drinks shantys ALL the time when I lived in Switzerland. I couldn’t agree more.
