Staff Favorites: WHAT WILL YOU DRINK ON THE FOURTH OF JULY?
PAUL: I might start off the day with a dry white such as St. Urbans-Hof Leiwener Laurentiuslay Riesling 2005, then go to a terrific red for summer, 2010 Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas.
RUSH: Eberle Cote d’Robles- A great red blend with a definite French influence, but it’s domestic!
ERIC: Yazoo Summer Ale. It’s good and something different.
ROYCE: Margaritas by the pool. Made with El Jimador Gold and Triple Sec of course!
TRAVIS: Domestic Champagne. Roderer Estate because it crushes the competition at its price point, and at least two bottles because there is nothing more American than drinking multiple bottles of champagne.
MATT: Beer! Founder’s Double Trouble and Terrapin Rye Cubed – they’ll be like fireworks in my mouth!
CLAIRE: I love whiskey but I like to keep it a little lighter on the fourth, so I’ll go with a refreshing glass of Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka with lemonade and a splash of rye. Then I might switch over to Remy V during the fireworks because nothing says “I’M PATRIOTIC!” like eu de vie!
KORIE: I normally stick with red wines, but this hot weather has me drinking rosés, so I’ll go with something light and dry, like Commanderie de la Bargemone.
GLORIA: I typically go with Porters or Stouts, but on Friday I’ll be drinking New Belgium Ranger IPA – or any IPA really – because the 4th is a great day for lighter beer.
NANCY: I’ll be drinking Kentucky bourbon, perhaps in a cocktail such as a “Thoroughbred Mule” made from our Four Roses Single Barrel, Gosling’s Ginger Beer, and a splash of lime over crushed ice in a chilled glass. Very refreshing on a hot day by the lake!
NATASHA: Charles and Charles Rosé because the label is oh-so-patriotic, you’ll see stars and what could be more American than a big pink!?
