Beverage Review: Seagram’s Escapes Blackberry Breezer

Seagrams Escapes Four Pack

Seagram’s Escapes is an amazingly delicious line of flavored Malt Beverages (Read: Fruit Flavored Beer) that reminds me of those Bartles & Jaymes Wine Coolers I used to get so wasted on back when I was in College.

The brand has been around for years, but they introduce new flavors every so often to keep things lively.  Earlier this year, they sent me a four pack of their recently introduced Blackberry Breezer flavor.  These tall, slender bottles of tasty beverage have been chilling in my fridge, while I waited for the weather to get warm and sunny enough that I could take them out to my front porch and photograph them. But I was also awaiting the seasonal onset of summery weather that inspires one to lounge hedonistically by a pool and drink fruity beverages. That day came today.

Blackberry Breezer tastes like Blackberry and Pear juice mixed together and it goes down very smooth. Unless you weigh less than 100 pounds, it takes at least two to get a decent buzz, but they taste so fruity, light and refreshing that maybe this will not be your go-to beverage to get slammed. Maybe save that for the vodka and cranberry juice.

Favorite Swimwear from Land’s End Spring Preview!

Since I’ve discovered that Cruise vacations totally rule and are among the most enjoyable vacations one can take, I’ve also realized the importance of having at least a couple of attractive, well-fitting pieces of swimwear. Because eventually, you are going to get wet, and you want to look good.

Yesterday I attended a fun press preview of Land’s End Clothing’s Spring 2013 line and fell in love with a collection of their new swimsuits in one of my favorite all-season colors: Black.

Black Suit Deep with Mock Skirt

With my bikini-wearing days now behind me, it’s fantastic to find a selection of one-piece suits that not only flatter the figure, but manage to look both classic and fashion forward at the same time. I may want a more forgiving style than a 20 year old, but I am not quite ready to swim in a dress.

Black Suit Assortment with Cover Up

It’s an added bonus that any of these styles are ideal for transitioning from the poolside to the party with the addition of a cute cover-up (such as the one pictured above) or wrap sarong. Expect to see these suits selling in the very affordable $55.00 – $65.00 price range.
