Frosé Fridays: Where to Sip This Summer

By Peyton Ladt Sterns June 15, 2018 

Frosé started to hit the scene last summer, but this year, thing's are getting even rosier. That's why each Friday, we're putting on our (f)rosé colored glasses and hitting up the best spots in NYC for frosé. Frosting at the mouth for more? We've also uncorked the recipes so you can make your own frosé in the comfort of your home. Check back each week for the latest addition.

Refinery Rooftop

Happy hour just got happier for you midtown mavens. Refinery Hotel is tucked into the corner of 38th and 6th Avenue and provides a nice respite from the crowded streets of Herald Square. Step inside, ride the lift to the top floor, and you'll step out into a beautiful outdoor space and rooftop covered in greenery and flowers. If it weren't for the spectacular view of the Empire State building, you might forget you're in New York for a minute.

The frosé is slushy cold with notes of strawberry and ripe melon, with a refreshing medium dry finish. Not only does it taste good, but you'll feel good drinking it (outside of the buzz) because $1 from each drink goes to their I Give a Sip charity of choice, which features a new cause each month. This July, proceeds will go to The Milliners Guild, an organization of millinery small business owners, milliners, and millinery students who specialize in the design, production, and promotion of handmade headwear.

Check out the frosé recipe below.

If you're lucky enough to be a female in NYC, and happen to belong to the women's social club/co-working space that's taken over your Instagram feed, your day just got even better because they too, have frosé. If you're not a member, find a friend who is. If you don't identify as female, this post will have to suffice.

Beaubourg at Le District

The frosé at Beaubourg is really delicious. I was planning on having one drink (everyone knows the rules, ehem Barstool Sports pizza reviews) but I couldn't help myself and had two. It was so refreshing, flavorful and delicate at the same time. The Melon Vodka gives it a bit of a twist, but you still know you're drinking frosé. Run, don't walk to have a glass...or two.
