For most Americans summer means one thing: drinking outdoors. But just because we all agree that summer is the perfect time for a bit of drinking al-fresco, it doesn’t mean we all agree on what should be consumed. Some prefer pink wine – so much so that the movement may have jumped the shark with the creation of the term “Brosé”– others are fans of light beer, kept cool by their foam encasements, and others simply need whatever’s handy in order to deal with the fact that the kids aren’t in school. Our tastes might be different, but the goal is the same: to have a wet, drunk and enjoyable summer.
