UPROXX recommends Gray Whale as a best gin for summer gin and tonics.

Perhaps the best thing about the changing of the seasons is the seasonal cocktails. Sure, you can enjoy a gin and tonic any time of the year, but there’s no better time for them than the summer. This perfect combination of gin, tonic, and lime offers refreshing, clean, and crisp relief on a hot, sunny, summer day. But as simple and fresh as this drink is, it’s also easy to ruin with the wrong ingredients.

To find the best ones to mix into your seasonal G&Ts, we asked a handful of bartenders to tell us their favorite bottles.

Gray Whale Gin

Jessie Smyth, bar director at Genever in Los Angeles

I love the versatility that Gray Whale offers to a gin and tonic. Depending on the tonic and garnish that you use, you can draw out the different botanicals and go from floral and citrusy (try using Q Elderflower tonic and a twist of lime) to more piney and bitter (using Q Indian Tonic and rosemary sprigs) to even tasting the notes of salt and ocean (Q Tonic and olives).

Parade includes Fleurs de Prairie in an article highlighting the best rosé wine selections for summer.

Rosé and summer go hand in hand. Warm weather, lazy beach days and fiery sunsets call for a glass of the pink, but with countless varietals and eye-catching bottles being released each year, it’s hard to know which ones to buy.

That’s why we did the hard part for you and narrowed down the list to these very drinkable—and Instagrammable—rosé wines and champagnes. Get ready to break out the ice bucket and toast to the start of #roséallday season (along with International Rosé Day on June 13), because if there’s one thing you want to sip on the porch, by the pool, or on a roof somewhere in the middle of summer, it’s rosé.

Fleurs de Prairie ($20): One of those wines that gets it right—from the very first sip. “Fleurs de Prairie” means “Wildflowers” in French and we’re wild for it, thanks to its bright, refreshing acidity. The grapes are sourced from select Provençal vineyards, with ideal growing conditions, and the result is delightfully fresh.

Beverage Media features Josh Cellars Lodi Reserve in its new product section highlighting the unique camo packaging and the brand’s partnership with Operation Gratitude.

Back for a second edition, Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi Reserve wears a unique “camo” label honoring America service men and women – the same pattern Josh Cellars founder Joseph Carr’s father wore in the U.S Army during the 1950s. For every bottle sold of this limited-time release, Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits will donate $1 to Operation Gratitude, a leading nonprofit that sends care packages and letters of thanks to troops stationed abroad.
