Pebbles, denim and wine for Popes.
Chateau Virgile Rosé 2015.
Heavy melon ice bucket.
- It's been over 90 degrees for too long now but the good news is local farmers markets are loaded with sweet heavy watermelons. New Belgium's refreshing Heavy Melon ale is also in season. That inspired me to turn one such local watermelon into an ice bucket for the ale.

Tenn. can beer flight.
Refreshing summer IPAs.
- Thank you brewers for bringing your crafty wares to market in cans. They're a flash to open, they get ice cold fast, they're light to pack along with you, and they're the easiest container to recycle. These four refreshing Tennessee-made IPAs are out there in cans so don't hesitate to ice them down to accompany the summer heat.

Turn on to Tie Dye.
Watermelon lime sauvignon blanc.
A very jolly rosé.
- Watermelon is summer and vice versa in the south. When ripe red melon flavor gets with a bunch of citrus tartness you can't help but think of Jolly Ranchers. This wine cocktail is a sophisticated take on that candy, with an amazing nose and dry refreshing finish.
