From tart, Washington-grown apples to bright Rainier cherries, we are lucky to have so many delicious, natural flavors so close to home here in Seattle. In the summer, those flavors translate beautifully into ice-cold drinks. We know there is nothing better than a local summer sip on a warm Seattle evening, so we’re sharing a list of a few of our favorites!

Silver City Brewery: Paving the way in Washington beer since 1996, Silver City Brewery was built on the belief that well-made beer brings people together, and that by taking care of your people, good things will come. Our team is currently obsessed with the seasonal Irresistible Bliss Strawberry Vanilla IPA.

San Juan Seltzer: When looking for a light and refreshing summer drink, San Juan Seltzer is our go-to. Their all-natural, gluten-free, PNW-inspired flavors like Huckleberry and Rainier Cherry perfectly complement a sunny Seattle day. And San Juan Seltzer is women-founded!

Seattle Cider Company: A cider that perfectly balances sweet, tart and bitter can be hard to find, but Seattle Cider Co. gets it right by focusing on the natural flavors of Washington apples. Try their delicious seasonal Marionberry flavor before it disappears with the summer sun!

Ghostfish Brewing Company: Ghostfish has mastered tasty, gluten-free beer -- and that’s no easy feat! Grab a six-pack at several stores around Seattle or visit their recently reopened Taproom to sip a freshly poured beer and eat from their 100% gluten-free menu.

Glass Vodka: This Seattle distillery offers unusual vodka flavors like honey nectar and vodka infused with pure Ceylon Cinnamon and delicate dry vanilla. Visit their tasting room to pick up a beautifully designed bottle and try it for yourself.

Callan Cellars: This rare female-founded winery is technically located in Woodinville, but we couldn’t resist including them in our guide. Their Brut Sparkling Wine, Rose and Grenache Blanc are the perfect wines to complement a charcuterie board in the sun.

Rachel's Ginger Beer: If alcohol isn’t your thing or your recently sober curious, Seattle staple Rachel’s Ginger Beer is the perfect way to still enjoy a mouthwatering summer drink.
