15 Jun Roadie Round Up
We know you have some outdoor fun planned this summer. Maybe you’re hitting the beach, the pool, or the lake for a day of sunbathing and swimming. Maybe you’ve got a hike, a camping trip, or a BBQ in the park in your future. Or maybe you’ve got tickets to an outdoor concert or music festival. What do all of these public spaces have in common? They generally ban glass containers so that everyone can enjoy the great outdoors without fear of stepping on broken glass.
There was a time when this ban would have made it tough to bring adult beverages on your nature adventures. Luckily for all of us, wine and cocktails have taken a page out of beer’s book and made canned selections available. Cans won’t shatter if you drop them by mistake, and they’re easy to crush so they won’t take up lots of space if you’re in a place where you need to take your trash with you when you go.
Here’s a round-up of our favorite traveling alcohol!
If you love White Girl Rose, you’ll be thrilled with Babe, her portable gal pal. A bubbly blend of Pinot Grigio and Primitive, Babe features a hint of honeydew melon.
Refreshing and lightly carbonated, you’ll be glad you included a 4-pack of this Chardonnay in your cooler. Features notes of starfruit, white peach, citrus, and a hint of cardamom at the end.
You might associate sangria with, well, anywhere except Portland, Oregon. But a combination of good wine, fresh juice, herbs and spices, and a light fizz might make this the only sangria you want this summer. “Like a juice cleanse, but more fun”.
Yes, you can enjoy a mixed drink while camping without having to pack your liquor and mixers separately. Just pack Spiked Seltzer instead, for a 6-percent abs gluten-free drink in flavors like West Indies Lime and Valencia Orange.
Speaking of mixed drinks, it just isn’t summer without a rum drink. Rum, coconut liqueur, and fruit juice make a portable drink that screams vacation.
