As your pals over at HydroHomies will tell you, keeping your fluids up is very important. Just remember that if you do opt for alcohol, you should imbibe responsibly. Now get your wizard staff and turn up the volume.

Kendrick Lamar, Swimming Pools (Drank)

The perfect song to listen to while hanging onto a pool noodle and sipping a tin.

Rupert Holmes, Escape (The Pina Colada Song)

Did you know that this song originally began with “If you like Humphrey Bogart”? True story. Other excellent facts: Holmes reluctantly added the extra words in parenthesis to the title after no one connected the original title – Escape – with pina coladas; also, during the song’s recording, both session drummers were so intoxicated that they could hardly perform – one apparently fell unconscious after the first take.

Snoop and Dr Dre, Gin & Juice

You might need one of those toddler beakers if you’re going to drink your gin in the car, laiiiid back – just ensure you’re not the DD.

Beastie Boys, Brass Monkey

A Brass Monkey is a cocktail of dark rum, vodka and orange juice, and it’s one seriously funky junkie spunky chunky monkey. Just ask the boys!

N.W.A, 8 Ball

Eazy E, however, reckons you can keep your Brass Monkey. He skips the orange juice bit and just downs himself a 40 ounce bottle of Olde English 800, ‘cause that’s his brand. Very nice.

Underworld, Born Slippy

I’ve certainly repeat-shouted “lager” on a few occasions.

FIDLAR, Cheap Beer

Your froth doesn’t need to be expenno to be good – in fact, one could argue that the more bargain the beer, the better the taste. And that’s precisely the case made by our good buds FIDLAR.

Kiss, Cold Gin

No one likes warm gin. Everyone likes cold gin! Especially Gene Simmons. His name even sounds a bit like gin.

UB40, Red Red Wine

You might think of red wine as a sultry fireside kind of drink, but pop that baby in the fridge and you’ve got a chilled, boozy Ribena. Add some fruit, some fizzy, and some other kind of liquor, and you have sangria. Cheers!
