Top Spots to Get Your Beach & Boating Essentials for Summer in Lake George

From sunbathing at the beach to boating on the lake with family and friends, summer in Lake George can't be beat. Are you planning your next visit? While you may already have sunscreen, sunglasses, and a beach blanket ready, no trip to the lake is complete without these beach and boating essentials.

Sip an Ice Cold Slushie Made With Your Favorite Adirondack Winery Wine

Looking to indulge in a little day drinking at the beach? Adirondack Winery's famous wine slushies are always a refreshing option during summer, and if you'd like to make your own at home, then you're in luck. To create your gourmet wine slushie, all you need is one of their Lush Wine Cocktail Mixes, some water, and of course your favorite bottle of Adirondack Winery wine.

Lush is an organic, 100% all-natural dry mix that turns wine into a wine cocktail in minutes, and it's available in Citrus Sangria, Original Frose, and Cosmopolitan flavors at Adirondack Winery.

After you've mixed together your slushie, now it's time to go enjoy your drink by the lake or out on a boat. To ensure it stays extra cold, we recommend picking up a Freeze Cooling Cup at Adirondack Winery. These attractive wine tumblers are designed to be placed in a freezer so they can keep your beverage chilled when you're ready. Adirondack Winery's products can be purchased online or at their three locations in the Lake George region.
