Long Weekend with Friends

Day two promises to be every bit as restful and fun as yesterday. This afternoon, set out a luscious bacon-rich snack and some cold drinks as guests enjoy a great book, flip through magazines together or come in from an afternoon walk.

Full flavoured with a subtle bite, Rolling Rock Extra Pale Ale is a quintessential American lager. Break out a pail to stash these iconic green cans on ice. Or, mix up a Berry Collins with Three Olives Vodka. Clean tasting with a hint of spice, it's also nice over ice.

Serving rich, starchy appetizers and snacks such as cheese, bread and dips is a great way to keep people from overindulging in alcohol. Be sure to have lots of water, pop and juice on hand as well.
