Tart, juicy, and sometimes just a little sweet, sour beer is becoming common and is a favorite for many! Same goes for fruit flavored beer. Simply enough, sour or fruity beer is made by infusing fruit or fruit juice into the brewing process. Sour beer is as refreshing as lemonade and might make you pucker up like such! While many types of beers fall into this category, they vary with the process and ingredients used. But if you want something new to try, any sour or fruit flavored beer should be unique at first sip!
When the warm summer weather hits, nothing sounds more refreshing than a fruity smoothie? It's both a snack and a drink in one! And smoothies are so easy to make at home. They’re perfect for sunny afternoons and go so well with outdoor activities and picnics. Cool and satisfying smoothies are great for families with kids and toddlers, too. Sneak in some greens like spinach or kale while you’re at it and the kids won’t even notice!
The combination of margaritas and tacos is hard to match. Tacos are usually light and flavorful which compliments the subtle tartness of margaritas. The classic duo of Mexican food and drink sometimes share flavors like lime, jalapeno, and of course salt: Margaritas can be spicy, extra sour, or nice and sweet to match your tacos. And the summer season is a perfect time to enjoy the light and refreshing pair!
Juicy, sweet, and scrumptious, stone fruits are quite a common sight throughout the warm summer months in the Pacific Northwest! While most of the year’s climate doesn’t accommodate these fruits, late July and August in Washington is time for harvesting fruit like peaches, nectarines, and plums. These stone fruits are easily cherished and enjoyed by everyone in the family— It’s something refreshing and delicious to look forward to towards the end of the summer!
