11 Things Every Wino Needs To Get Her Drink On Right This Summer

by Alexa Mellardo

Once summer rolls around, every wino needs to be prepared to take it on in fabulous, boozy fashion.

From ringing in the sizzling season with festive beach and pool parties, to barbecues and picnics for Memorial Day Weekend, there are some necessities any wine lover simply cannot live without.

She needs to be equipped for every backyard rager, girls' night out, and beach trip to get her drink on in style.

Once the weather warms up, she lives by that “rosé all day” mentality. It's the only way she knows how to roll, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Here are 11 essentials all winos should be equipped with to slay it this summer.

1. "Namast'ay home and drink wine" tank top


Tank Top, $18, Etsy 

Preach, though.

This chic tank top pretty much speaks for itself. It should be a key player in every wino's wardrobe this summer, complete with a sun hat and glam shades.

You'll be looking breezy, cool, and trendy AF while sipping your wine.

2. Merlot infused coffee

If you're one to embody those “but first, coffee” vibes on the reg, this merlot infused coffee is an awesome spin on your much-needed (and appreciated) dose of caffeine.

3. Four-pack of canned wine

Lila Wine (4-pack), $12, Lila Wines 

Wine in a can? Yes, please.

Each and every wino should put Lila Wines on her radar (and in her beach bag) this summer... especially if you're all about sipping on the sand, or toasting with your gal pals at the end of a rejuvenating hike.

Crack open a can, kick back, and chillax.

4. Light up wine sign

This LED wine sign is the perfect addition to your patio this summer. Put it above the outdoor buffet hutch (which is designated specifically for sangria and chilled wine, of course).

5. Wine bottle pool floaty

7. Outdoor wine table

8. Inflatable unicorn drink holders
