I stumbled across this NYT article yesterday and thought I’d share it here because I agree completely with what the author has to say.
“It’s not color that guides the choice of warm-weather beverages, but weight. Just as woolens give way to cottons and linens, so do heavier wines, beers and spirits yield to beverages with less ballast. What seems robust and warming in the bleak cold now feels ponderous and unwieldy. By contrast, what felt insubstantial back then is now refreshing and energizing.”
Check it out, well worth your time:
