Cider - Brickworks Cherry Cider
I was never a huge cider fan, and I'm still not, but I do enjoy one every now and again. If you're in Toronto and get a chance to go to the Brickworks Ciderhouse at Broadview and Queen, check it out. I went last year and really enjoyed sampling their various ciders, and the food was good too!
The coolers I prefer are the ones that are fairly light on the sugar, and of course I lean towards gin based ones too. The Social Lite one, although made with vodka, is very refreshing, and light tasting (be careful!!), my favourite is the lime ginger one
Rosé - Veille Ferme
I've mentioned this one before but you can't go wrong with Veille Ferme in any shade, but of course the rosé is required for summer.
Beer - Sours
With all of the craft breweries popping up, I can't really pick one or two beers to share, since they will be different everywhere, but what I've been enjoying are the sour brews for summer. I can't drink a lot of them, but one is very refreshing.
Wine Glass - Corksicle
This insulated glass is great for the patio, it has a lid so you don't have to worry about any bugs getting in, or if it gets knocked over by a kid or wayward frisbee, it won't spill, or break, and it has a rubber bottom so it doesn't slide around. Plus it keeps your wine cool, which is good for outside, or inside if your house is like ours in the summer. They come in many great colours and designs.
Happy Patio Drinking!
