It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Summer is here and that means longer days and more opportunities to enjoy time outdoors with friends and family. From picnics to patios to pool parties, enjoying some adult beverages while surrounded by nature is as summer as can be.
However, for wine drinkers like me, enjoying your favorite beverage outdoors has always been slightly problematic, as carrying a large glass bottle to a picturesque location (like a beach or picnic spot) isn’t necessarily ideal. Therefore, when I discovered these canned wines by AVA Grace I was excited to give them a try!
These Rosé and Pinot Grigio cans are the same great AVA Grace wines, but in a much more travel / outdoor friendly package. Since, to me, summer has always been synonymous with travel and outdoors, these cans are the perfect summer sipper (and can go wherever your travels or outdoor adventures may take you).
These little packages of aluminum awesomeness are perfect for beaches, picnics, patio dinners or even girls night in — speaking from experience (I have used them for all three).
Every night mother nature puts on a beautiful production. Get outside and enjoy a summer sunset whilst sipping a refreshing Pinot Grigio or Rosé.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to savor summer evenings:
Grab a friend and a basket full of food/wine and plan a picnic. Outdoor meals require little planning and can be as simple or elegant as you like. Just pack some snacks and, of course, wine and find a beautiful place to enjoy.
2. Patio / Al Fresco
One of my favorite things about summer is spending time outside, so I welcome any opportunities to dine al fresco. This week, try bringing the inside out and join me in enjoying a glass of sauvignon blanc on a gorgeous summer evening among nature.
3. Girls’ Night
Spending an evening with my girlfriends is one of my favorite ways to end a summer day. We love getting together for wine nights and making food/snacks while watching movies. From spa nights to movie nights, getting together with friends over a glass of wine is a great way to enjoy a summer night.
4. Pool Party:
Fire up the grill, grab some pool floats and enjoy a refreshing summer evening poolside with friends (and of course, wine).
