Bathing suit season has finally reclaimed its proper place in the past. We’ll never be further from publicly exposing our midriffs than we are at this exact moment, so let’s embrace it. After a season of drinking calorie conscious cocktails, we’re free to loosen our belts and order another round of some really, really dark stouts.

Sugary mixed drinks like Margaritas and Mai Tais are fun to drink by the pool, but their high calorie counts keep us at an arm’s length all Summer long. Now we’re at that perfect in between where it’s still warm enough for a fun drink, but cool enough to keep our shirts on. Bless the changing of the seasons. Between the White Russians and dark IPAs, we don’t know where to start.

Now that you’re free to pile on the bulky sweaters, what drinks will you be splurging on this season?
