Summer is basically here, which means it’s time to share our favorite drinks that are budget-friendly, tasty, and most importantly will give you a great buzz. We’ve got you covered from red and white wines all the way down to prosecco. Here are our top five!
The 2015 Purple Heart Red Wine, $19.99
The 2015 Purple Heart Red Wine has aromas of cedar, plums, blackberries, black currant, as well as hints of black licorice. It’s the perfect red wine to sip on during dinner or while lounging around on a summer night. Best part? It’s only $19.99.
The Moscato Sweet White Wine, $13.99
If you’re more of a sweet white wine type of person, then the Moscato Sweet White Wine is for you. This Moscato is a flavorful mix of peaches, musk, honey, and white flowers. This will only set you back about $13.
The 2016 Chenin Blanc ‘Steen Op Hout’, $13.99
With its fruity aromas, the 2016 Chenin Blanc ‘Steen Op Hout’ is the ideal drink for a hot summer day. The wine is a blend of papaya, melon, limes, granny smith apples, and touches of Oak spice. Sounds refreshing, right? Plus, at $13.99, why not?
The 2015 Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc, Under $40.00
The fresh lime and white grapefruit citrus make the 2015 Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc wine a dazzling, yet fresh option for summer. It’s pair perfectly with a fresh salad and green vegetables. The 2015 is sold out, but we bet the 2016 limited release is probably just as tasty! A delicious Sauvignon Blanc under $40, we’re all about that!
The Zonin Prosecco 1821, $13.00
Ah! Finally, my favorite kind of drink, prosecco! The Zonin Prosecco 1821 has a bouquet of fruits, almonds, and fresh citrus with lots of bubbles! Pair it with crab cakes, pan-seared salmon, or chicken pesto for a delicious summer dinner. At $13 a bottle, you can’t get much better than that.
