  • Cold Cerveza, Hot Sun

    A good bowl of ceviche needs a cold Mexican beer to wash it down. Mexican cervezas may not be the fanciest in the world, but they're brewed for easy drinking and maximum thirst-quenching, so when you're lazing in the sun, reach for a Corona, XX or Sol to sooth your parched throat.
