5 Drinks to Try Over the Summer
With summer swinging in fast, the need for refreshing drinks filled with bursts of summer fruity flavours is calling.
Don’t miss out on trying these 5 drinks that will have you finding a new summer favourite sip.
Raw Vine Estate Rosé
When it comes to hot weather, not many things can beat a good rosé. For wine lovers staying away from an oaky Chardonnay or for those finding that a sweet Riesling simply just isn’t hitting the spot, there aren’t as many choices as smart as picking out a beautiful rosé wine to pair nicely with your mood.
Rosé to many wine connoisseurs is the thought of summer and spring all juiced and sprigged up into a bottle, surpassing that desire for a heavy red or light white when you’re out in the hot Aussie sun.
But truth be told, not all rosé wines are created equal.
Which is where a taste of the Raw Vine Estate Rosé is a must for those who do not wish to experience disappointment. Unearthing the truth behind nature’s goodness in a raw and naked form, the Raw Vine Estate Rosé is sourced only from certified organic views that are pure from artificial pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilisers. The wine is preservative free, giving it a pure and clean taste that doesn’t lead to headaches.
Crisp, dry and vibrant, this rosé bears the marks of traditional Italy. With a gorgeous salmon pink hue with hints of rose water, strawberries and cream on the nose. The palate does not disappoint with a fresh, crisp and dry taste finished with an aromatic lift.
Amanda Mandarin IPA
An American styled IPA that is specially layered with an array of mandarin flavour derived from cold pressed mandarins and carefully selected hop bill, which is then blended together with an orange peel liqueur for ultimate flavour infusion.
The end result creates a uniquely fruit driven IPA with the assertiveness of mandarin peel bitterness, the sweet sensational of citrus fruit, followed by a beautiful dry finish of hop.
The Amanda Mandarin IPA is the perfect summer IPA for those who enjoy good citrus and mandarin notes that aren’t overpowering. It’s clean, crisp, refreshing with a uniqueness that rejuvenates acting as the ideal thirst quencher on a hot summer’s day.
Pimm’s No 1 Cup Lemonade & Ginger Ale
A taste of British summer time, a sparkling, cold glass of Pimm’s No 1 Cup Lemonade & Ginger Ale is an absolute must for those who enjoy both ginger ale, lemonade and gin.
Invented in 1840 London by James Pimm, Pimm’s No 1 was originally marketed as a health tonic containing quinine and a secret combination of herbs. Rumour has it, the secret recipe is only known to six people.
Undoubtedly thanks to it’s amazing flavour, the drink became such a success that it’s hit mass markets all over the world. Featuring the perfect mix of lemonade and dry ginger ale, this is one summer drink you have to try at least once (and then many more times) in your lifetime.
Only $17.99 for a 4 pack at the Cooly Liquor bottle shop.
