Babe Wine’s General Manager, Chelsea Phillips, revealed what her go-to drink is from the canned wine brand. “I’ve been spending most of my free time on the lake, so I am mostly slinging Babe Reds,” the 31-year-old told Us Weekly exclusively. “I love that they kind of taste like sangrias right out of the can and are easy to toss into the cooler and go.”

Phillips added, “If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll mix Babe Rosé into a cocktail. I like to use it instead of sparkling water for a little more taste and a lot more fun.”

To spice up any cocktail, she uses jalapeños or subs tequila for mezcal.

Prior to joining the Babe team, Phillips was a North Carolina girl who loved the great outdoors — and still is. “I grew up backpacking with my dad and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2018. I also share my dad’s passion for live music, and we go to Bonnaroo [music festival] with my brothers as often as we can,” she explained. “I like to cook but hate to eat leftovers and am a sucker for throwing in the towel and just ordering soup dumplings.”

Amid quarantine this 4th of July, the marketing pro will be taking the time to recharge with a vacation. She also plans to read a few books with a cocktail in hand.
