Little Big Town’s 5 Tips for “Day Drinking”
A current contender in the country summer anthem category, Little Big Town’s single “Day Drinking” has begun its trek up the charts, leaving us to wonder: how can one be sure you are partaking in the art of day drinking correctly?
Apparently, LBT’s Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild have had some experience with this.
The husband/wife team seemed quite eager to offer Country Weekly readers five tips on how to properly day drink this summer. Take note of the following.
Tip #1 – LOCATION IS KEY
“Vacation day drinking is the best,” explains Karen. “On the beach, on vacation? There is just nothing like it. Or, I love having an afternoon lunch in Chicago with a glass of wine, followed up by some shopping. Getting a little loose with your girlfriends really is the best way to shop.”
Tip #2 – PICK YOUR DRINK WISELY
“I love to partake in a mai tai during the day, but only when it’s a special occasion like when we are on vacation in Hawaii or Mexico or someplace like that,” says Jimi, whose wife has been known to prefer skinny margaritas. “I love how the fresh fruit juice mixes with the rum. Aaahhh . . . it’s so good.”
Tip #3 – STOCK UP
“Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is my go-to beer for the summer,” explains Jimi. “When those things come into season, the tour bus is immediately stocked.”
Tip #4 – DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE
“I love these fans that come out to all of the summer festivals,” says Karen. “They can day drink all day because they don’t have to go anywhere else when the sun goes down. They can just go straight to their tent.”
Tip #5 – TAKE IT EASY
“Day drinking is all about moderation,” Karen concludes. “Take it slow and easy.”
