The Story Of Sol

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

I talk about Sol, a drink I discovered while on a trek out to Montauk (on the island below NY city) it took us five hours from PA on a hot day through Brooklyn -getting lost in Brooklyn you know what that’s like- finally we made it to the inlet connecting to the final island and Montauk ,which is located at the tip of Long Island and is below sea level…

The sun was setting and we stopped to decompress at a seaside establishment, sitting outside as the sun set and spread across the horizon you felt enveloped by the sky,  being below sea level as I said, its hard to explain but you become engulfed by the elements.. and so there, I ordered my first Sol –

Suffice to say I can recapture that feeling every time I open a sol, but I never researched the sol phenomena,  here is a great description of this drink.

Drink Review on: Sol Cerveza
   
 
  la cerveza más grande, Aug 09, 2007
Reviewer: marshallkramer <!– – See all my reviews–>I have to say this is one of the finest beers around. i first started drinking Sol about 10 years ago on spring break in Mexico. and only about 5-6 years ago was i able to find it in our area in Pennsylvania. i have turned all of my friends onto it, and they all love it. it has a clean, crisp taste and is very refreshing. for people that have never tried it, i say “if you don’t like corona, you will love Sol”. most people think you need a lime to drink mexican beer. you don’t need lime or salt or anything to drink Sol. i have been told many times by my friends in Mexico that Sol is what Mexicans drink, they ship the cheap corona to the states for us to drink. next time you’re at the store and see Sol, pick up a case and enjoy.

 

Anyway that’s the story of Sol!

FYI,

I know I am repeating myself sometimes but I have not printed out all my posts, as  a good blogger should do, and sort them …then there is the problem of sporadically deleting posts after they have served their purpose… also I am an old bag , so there you have it… someday when I am  finally living on my 25 acre estate I will tend to those chores, till then…
