Let's play a game everyone—it's summertime, which means the weather is HOT. Being without something cool and delicious in your hand to drink is most certainly NOT. What else is HOT and what is NOT? Take a look, then head down to Colonial Wines & Spirits for everything you need to make summer sound like rock n' roll.

WHAT'S HOT: Box wine—this isn't your Mama's box wine. Today's options offer extremely high quality and convenience.
WHAT'S NOT: Showing up at a party or cookout without a host/hostess gift. We suggest Louis Jadot Beaujolais or Maker's Mark bourbon.

WHAT'S HOT: Frozen berries instead of ice—berries (any type) plus a little water in an ice tray=a beautiful way to keep your cocktails cool.
WHAT'S NOT: Warm beer—get a growler of brewery-fresh craft beer for a tasty heat beater. A Colonial growler koozie keeps that fresh brew chilled and looks pretty chill too.

WHAT'S HOT: Fresh air—your wine needs plenty of air to breathe properly, which won't happen if you stop at opening the bottle. Try using an aerator, you'll be surprised at the difference it makes.
WHAT'S NOT: Staying in your rut—Colonial has plenty of new beer, wine and spirits you should try. For example:

Red wine: Belle Gloss Clark & Telephone pinot noir; Round Pond Napa cabernet sauvignon
White wine: Mer Soleil silver chardonnay; Presquile savignon blanc
Craft beer: Summit IPA; Marshall Arrowhead pale ale
Bourbon: Basil Hayden
Scotch: Haig Club single grain Scotch whisky

When it comes to staying cool, we've just touched the tip of the iceberg here. Keep cool, keep refreshed—and keep coming out to Colonial Wines & Spirits for ideas to keep your summer chill.
