Hot? What to Drink to Cool Down

The weather in our neck of the woods has been unusually hot these last few weeks. People are flocking to the pools, taking refuge in the air conditioning, and drinking a lot of cold beverages. We came across an article today, originally posted by Food and Wine, that covers what types of drinks will help you cool down.

In the Northwest, where the weather is ranging from the high 60°F mark to the low 80°F mark, try a 2008 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay.

In the midwest or Northeast, where temperatures are reaching 80°F to 100°F try a 2008 Weingut Fred Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner ($14) or a 2009 Clifford Bay Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc ($10).

In the West, where temperatures are nearing or surpassing the 100° mark try a 2009 Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde ($10). And for those REALLY hot in the Southwest, where temperatures are 110°F and above, skip the wine and have a cold beer. Try Stella Artois ($10 for a 6-pack).
