Yes, it really is August already (sad!), but that doesn’t mean summer is over. In fact, there’s still plenty of the season to savor. One of best ways to weather the dog days? With sensational sips, obviously. Here are 10 top beverage brands we’re drinking this summer.
Love vino but hate the hangover? Meet your new favorite drink, Starla — the first and only ultra-premium alcohol-removed wine. This super stylish brand will impress even the most discerning oenophiles with its sophisticated winemaking process using carefully harvested grapes and the finest botanicals to yield a delightful sauvignon blanc, red blend and sparkling rosé.
This female-founded brand’s all-natural fruit-infused tequilas are handcrafted in Jalisco, Mexico, and come in varieties like Valencia orange, grapefruit and hibiscus, and cucumber and jalapeño. They’re perfect for crafting easy-peasy poolside cocktails, like the Seed + Soda, and even boozy ice pops.
Art of Tea
Are all those alfresco dinners and weekend adventures catching up with you? If you’re in need of a little pick-me-up, Art of Tea has you covered with its Wellness Collection. Aptly named options like Breathe, Cleanse, Glow and Feel Better are delicious served hot or cold, and we promise they’ll do the trick.
Gone are the days of boring nonalcoholic beverages. Jukes was born from the idea that sans alcohol doesn’t have to mean sans fun or taste. Handcrafted in London from all-natural vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers and organic apple cider vinegar, these so-called cordialities can be enjoyed as a wine alternative or mixed into a mocktail.
Consider this a new-age take on the Arnold Palmer, but with a buzz. This Aussie favorite combining rosé and lemonade has finally made its way to America, and we can see why it’s such a hit down under. The essence of a summer beach can indeed be captured in a can, it turns out.
Rise Brewing Co.
Nitro cold brew at home? Yes, please! Rise’s canned goodies are organic, dairy-free and frothing with flavor. Varieties include original black; oat milk regular, vanilla and mocha lattes; and London fog tea oat milk lattes. If you need a good reason to get out of bed in the morning, this is it.
Thanks to media darling Le Moné, aperitifs just got lighter and livelier. This low-ABV offering combines Meyer lemon, New York wine and California brandy for the ideal at-home cocktail or spritz mix-in. The brand also recently launched new flavors like lemon blackberry, lemon cucumber, lemon orange lime and lemon raspberry lavender.
If you want to bring that brunch vibe with you on the go, you’re in luck. Picnic Brunch canned cocktails cover all the mandatory libations — mimosa, bellini and bloody mary — and couldn’t be more convenient. Living the good life just got easier.
Move over, LaCroix. This sparkling herbal water is sure to add a spark to your day. Delightful flavors include basil berry, lavender cucumber, lemongrass coconut and peppermint watermelon. Sound sort of, well, weird? That’s the point, but trust us: These creative combos are oh so good.
One Stone Cellars
Girls’ wine night can be even more impactful thanks to One Stone Cellars. With every bottle of cab or rosé, you’re supporting Dream Big Darling, a nonprofit dedicated to mentoring women in the wine and spirits industry. Sipping to support others? Count us in.
