During the summer heat, sometimes the best way to get comfortable is to retreat to a sports bar with air conditioning and an ice-cold drink. Once there, you can catch up with friends and family, and if the timing is right, watch soccer, baseball, or early-season football. Here’s what to drink to help you relax, cool down, and enjoy the game.
The Top 5 Refreshing Drinks for Summer
Those who want a hoppy beverage should opt for a crisp beer. From Miller Lite® to Blue Moon® Belgian White, beer is a favorite drink for sports fans at happy hour and during a Saturday night game. For a summertime brew, choose a beer with amber coloring and a light, hoppy or fruity body.
2. Fountain Soda
Did you know the first carbonated soda fountains were patented in 1816? Whether you call it soda or pop, there are lots of flavors to choose from—including root beer or lemon-lime. Plus, Pepsi® and other sodas go great with chicken wings and a relaxed summer vibe.
3. The Platinum Margarita
There’s nothing better than a frozen margarita after hours in the sun—it’s just like the slushies you loved as a kid, only better. Complete a classic margarita with a salted rim and a lime wedge, or order your drink on the rocks if you’re craving something a little stronger.
4. B-Dubs® Blenders
Ira Freehof holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest milkshake in history—it was about 50,000 times larger than the average serving. B-Dubs Blenders aren’t quite as large, but they are tasty and come in three unique flavors: chocolate cake, orange-mango, and berry. With a dollop of whipped cream, this drink will cool you down even when it’s scorching outside.
5. Red Bull®
Need a pick-me-up to boost your energy and avoid the mid-day slump? Dig into a Red Bull to enjoy a carbonated caffeine buzz. The drink is tasty on its own or paired with vodka and ice on a weekend.
