Imagine it’s the end of a long, tough day at the office.

The boss has been “the BOSS”…

Co-workers have been less than co-operative…

Deadlines came, went, continued…

Even if you’re NOT making that grueling commute down jam-packed freeways, it’s still can seem a tough slog to take the stairs from your ramshackle basement office to the family room.

You just need a break. So you decide to take a quick, hot shower to unwind.

But there’s one more decision to be made:

“What to drink?”

Long acclaimed by college students, drinking in the shower has gone mainstream.

The first inklings of this trend appeared in a 2019 Coors ad, which declared Coors Light “the official beer of drinking in the shower.”

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal ups the ante on the “shower beer” with its piece “Are You Missing Out On… Shower Cocktails?” Detailing the trend, it even provides a handy recipe for the author’s preferred refreshment:

  • The Shower Paloma – a tasty blend of tequila, Aperol, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and a splash of club soda.

Of course, there are risks to imbibing in the shower – glass bottles easily shatter, and the slick tile surface doesn’t provide the surest of footing to anyone more than just a tad under the influence.

Nevertheless, with an eye to caution and moderation, this may well be something to consider some hot summer day to kick off the perfect weekend.

One thing you don’t want to worry about as you relax is whether your retirement portfolio is safe and secure. Give us a call at 513-563-PLAN (7526) or book online for your free financial review.
