July Boujee Booze

Expand your drinking palate with this monthly installment of new booze


The Columbus Brewing Company offers a great brew for those warmer summer nights. This double IPA may scare off the average pong player, but it goes down incredibly smooth for a beer with an 8.3% ABV. The hops are present but not dominant, as the beer features specialty Citra hops that add a delightfully fresh citrus flavor that is perfect for the hotter temperature. The hops blend on the tongue smoothly, serving as a reminder of both orange and peach tastes with a moderate bitterness as it slides down the throat. This beer has a pale golden hue in a draft glass that shines on its own in the summertime.

Summer is finally in full stride as July is upon us. Every day serves as the perfect opportunity to gather your group of friends for rooftop happy hours, patio dinners, and outdoor concerts. On the weekends you can opt for a day on the boat under the shimmering sun, comfortable nights out surrounded by soft area lighting to set the mood, and a classy Sunday brunch to rest up before the week begins again. It’s also a month full of celebrating the birthday of our country, with red, white, and blue all over. Here are suggestions on what to drink while making memories in the heart of Summer 2019.


Summer also goes by another famous name: wedding season. And what is a better way to celebrate weddings than choosing a cocktail famously referred to in “Wedding Crashers”? The drink is a light rum-based beverage with a sweet and sugary strawberry flavor, paired neatly with the tart acidity of lime juice that is sure to hit the spot. The strawberry daiquiri mixture is a simple, refreshing drink that’s easy to make in the comfort of your own home or appealing enough order out with the group. Its vibrant red attractiveness is sure to turn heads, and cool you down from the sizzling heat if needed.
