Whether it comes to ice-cold cocktails or wines, we all have preferences when it comes to which libations we prefer to drink in hot weather.
Some of us cannot handle drinking a high in alcohol; tannic red wine during the hot summer months and naturally turn to other alternatives.
On this note, many people gravitate toward the great dry rosÃƒÂ© wines, which always deliver in beating the heat. Some of us, who just canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t bear to stay away from our red wines, find that these are the perfect Ã¢â‚¬Å“stand-insÃ¢â‚¬Â as they are made from red grapes!
Just as wines have body and varying mouth feels (viscosity), so do cocktails. If you are a gin and tonic fan laced with loads of fresh lime, or a Caipirinha or Margherita fan youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll probably be drawn to crisp, Sauvignon Blancs. California, New Zealand and the Loire Valley provide a zesty and fresh quaff, and are streamlined, so to speak, with clean and refreshing crispness, that hits the spot on hot summer days.
