Thirsty Thursday: Summer Solstice Sips

by  | 

Yay! It’s almost officially summer! Yep, even though you may have been rocking your string bikinis and sundresses for a few weeks now, summer doesn’t actually start until tomorrow, June 21st!

That’s right, tomorrow all of us will experience the most sunlight of the year, and Iceland (being the northernmost location in the world) will experience a full 24 hours of sunlight. And you know what that means? 24 hours to party!

So we’re celebrating with a day full of activities, including a nice, cool, Icelandic beverage created by New York mixologists at bars; PDT, Little Branch, Milk & Honey and Gwynnett St. Using Reyka Vodka (an Icelandic specialty) these drinks will have you partying in the summer sun all day and night!
