Memorial Day: Kicking Off The Summer

Grab the hot dogs, hamburgers, shades, and flip-flops - Memorial Day Weekend is three weeks away! It’s the unofficial start to the always-too-short season of barbecue, biking, boating, and beaching. Celebrated across the United States to honor the men and women who lost their lives serving in the Armed Forces, Memorial Day is both a holiday of remembrance and a celebration of the sacrifices made for this country. 

Over this three-day weekend, families and friends across the nation will fire up their grills, break out the SPF, and undoubtedly spend hours trying to navigate the ladder golf setup instructions. Whether you’re bouncing from sandbar to sandbar or kicking back in the shade, you’re going to want to include your favorite refreshing beverage. Summer calls for lighter options that help beat the heat and elicit that satisfying “ahhhhh” after every sip. 

Here are some of GAP’s summertime favorites: 

Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy – An exceptional lemonade-infused wheat beer perfect for those late afternoon barbecues. Light, citrusy, and refreshing – everything you want from a beer in the summer. 

Mike’s Hard Lemonade – This tasty beverage swirls lemon flavor in just the right amount of carbonation for that ultra-refreshing taste. Stake your claim near the cooler. 

Jamaican Sunrise w/Smirnoff No. 21 – Even if you live in the ‘burbs and lounge on a 10 ft. square patch of lawn, you can still feel as though you’re on a tropical island. Fill a highball with ice. Add 1.5 oz. Smirnoff No. 21 and 4 oz. pineapple juice. Float 0.75 oz. of grenadine on top. If you own a steel drum, now would be the appropriate time to play it.*

Parrot Bay Mango Daiquiri, Frozen – It’s the perfect drink to cool you down when the mercury gets too high. No blender required – just freeze and squeeze. Tiki Bar not included. 

Let GAP complement your drink choice with stylish and functional products that will keep you cool, refreshed, and ready to take on the summer months.
