Our good friends at Social Wines – and new Best of Boston winners for Best Wine Shop have some recommendations of what to drink this weekend! “New to Massachusetts, Oregon winery Underwood Cellars put three of their wines in easy to carry, BBQ and pool-friendly cans! We’re loving the Rose, plus there’s a Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Or keep it local with Portico’s Fuzzy Logic, a not-too-heavy German Kolsch style beer from this Boston area brewer. And for a simple cocktail, brand new to the U.S. is Gin Mare. Distilled with olives, rosemary, thyme and juniper, just chill this Spanish gin and sip your new favorite martini!”  Social  Wines – 52 West Broadway
