In the adult world, summer has an entirely different meaning than what it used to mean back when we were young. Summer used to mean no school, block parties and maybe a job delivering papers, or being some lifeguard. In the adult world, summer just means liquor and lots of it! (Not that we condone excessive drinking or anything.) After the dreaded 9-5’s Monday through Friday, happy hours, roof-top bars, and cool hangouts seem like heaven to us. Be it a cool beer, a new celeb drink campaign or, just a nice mixed drink, Bleu says BRING ON THE BOOSE , and enjoy this summer!

Rum & Coke
Rum and coke is a tried and tested favorite among many people that enjoy the taste of Coca Cola or Pepsi. Rum pairs well with coke make a spicier tasting drink that’ll pack a punch. One of the most popular drinks at any bar, Captain and coke reigns supreme among those merely looking through doorway to manly drinks but haven’t fully stepped in to the other side just yet.
Jack & Coke
Jack Daniels and coke, is what I find the stronger-tasting whiskey variation of the rum and coke for those that prefer whisky to rum. Another popular option is Southern Comfort and coke or Jim Beam and coke. You don’t want to mix the more expensive, better tasting whiskeys because you’re just wasting good tasting whiskey with soda pop. Save the other stuff to drink by itself.
Gin & Tonic
A classic standard.. Admittedly not the manliest drink on this list, but I wouldn’t call it feminine either. Sort of a boring flavor for my tastes but many worthy men swear by it as a simply drink to get simply drunk. Served on the rocks. It’s crisp, clear, and packs a punch.
