Beer, brandy, tequila, gin, wines, and other spirits in the Philippines are just some of the staple beverages for people to enjoy. It really depends on people’s taste and the mood set by various factors – which include the weather.
The weather is a great indicator on how a certain day will turn out. This especially applies to your drinking sessions. For example, during a hot day, it is natural for anyone to want to reach for chill and cool fruity drinks, so they can quench their thirst. On the other hand, when the weather is cool and rainy, people tend to go for something that can warm their bodies immediately.
Now that the weather in the country is slowly changing from hot to rainy, people should start discussing ways on how they can easily enjoy alcoholic drinks. Here are some suggestions:
Watch a Movie

The perfect match of food and beverage is one of the things that can complete a movie marathon. Doing this can simply heighten one’s viewing experience. You can grab a bottle of your favorite, either wine or beer (or both), and pour yourself a glass.

Otherwise, you can drink them in room temperature, which is also perfect during the rainy season.

All of you can opt to have a good clean fun or involve some alcoholic drinks into your game. For instance, you can turn an innocent game of Monopoly into Drinking Monopoly.
If you guys are not into board games, you can set up your game consoles to play video games all day long. You won’t even hesitate to drink a few cans of beer while enjoying yourselves.
