Trend Alert: What to Sip on This Summer

Say hello to your new favorite summer drinks! There’s never been a better time to experience the happy hour hype and tap into the latest boozy trends than right now as the world opens back up. Did someone say shot girl summer?

Topo Chico Seltzers

The popular sparkling mineral water brand, Topo Chico, recently launched a lineup of hard seltzers that have been flying off the shelves. If you haven’t tried them yet, you’re officially behind the curve.

The pack hit stores on March 29 and has stirred up major internet buzz ever since. Topo Chico Hard Seltzers come in four tropical flavors: Tangy Lemon Lime, Tropical Mango, Strawberry Mango and Exotic Pineapple. We imagine Topo Chico will continue to attract more fans throughout the upcoming summer months.

RTD Cocktails

Ready–to-drink cocktails are back this summer! These are about to be “the drink” for your park picnics, patio parties and pool days. You can save time and skip the hassle of mixing by leaving the cocktail crafting to the mixologists. Check out Crafthouse, Cutwater and High Noon to fulfill all your RTD dreams!

Pro Tip: Denver-based Crafthouse Cocktails just released 1.75L boxed cocktails that are perfect for your next party. It never hurts to have ready-made Margs on hand.

Vinho Verde

In the wine world, Portugese wines have been the talk of the town as the drink of the summer. Specifically, Vinho Verdes have been gaining a lot of attention for their refreshing flavors and accessible prices.

If you want to hop on this trend, we recommend Casal Garcia, Broadbent, Vilacetinho, Famega and Bico Amarelo!

Top Shelf Boxed Wine

At this point, you should know better than to judge a wine by its packaging. Boxed wines are no longer just for budget-conscious buyers, and several brands produce boxed wine with top shelf quality. These products will make your life easier while also providing excellent, full flavors. Ciconia is one of our personal favorites, and we highly recommend giving it a try if you haven’t already!


Summer is the time for light liquor to shine! As bars continue to lift restrictions, G&Ts are bound to be a go-to drink for summer nights. We recommend getting creative with the garnishes and trying out a few new brands. Mythology, Cap Rock and Leopold Bros. are excellent Colorado-based options to start with!


People are ready to party! What will they be drinking? Tequila! 

We’ve noticed the category picking up significant speed lately, which means it’s time to join in on the fun! A few of our favorites include Maestro Dobel, La Gritona, 1800 Reposado and Casamigos.

Keep Molly’s in mind when you’re ready to try something new or tap into the latest trend. Stay tuned for what’s next in wine, beer and spirits!
