Summer means day drinking in the sun, period. It’s one of life’s greatest joys. Sadly, since I’m pregnant, I will not be participating this year. This means that I will be sad. Very sad. The miracle of life is GREAT. But is the miracle of day drinking, greater? It’s a realllllly tough call.
“Don’t say that!” you say. “Your child might read this someday!” Well don’t worry, guys. That will never happen. I’m not going to teach him to read. I’ll be too busy day drinking! Of course, when you’re a mom, your day drinking does have to be a little different than your college days, obviously. You naturally switch to martinis paired with a handful of quaaludes. It’s a natural part of growing up.
But just because I can’t partake in the glory of 12 hours of full day drinking, doesn’t mean you have to abstain! And if you’re going to day drink this summer, you need to know what the absolutely best and worst day drinks are. So here is our definitive power ranking of summer day drinking beverages.
Our rating system today will be the amount of “Day drinking drunk friends that you make on the fly, and are convinced in the moment will last forever.”
