A wine tour through Provence is a trip for a true Rosé aficionado to show off their knowledge.

The latest addition to London’s roster of quirky venues is the highly anticipated hotel, The Ned.

The Hampton Social restaurant in Chicago has quite possibly the most famous #RoséAllDay Instagram photo opportunity in the world. Inspired by the beachside Hamptons resorts, this stylish restaurant serves seafood dishes and beach-themed cocktails. Look out for the neon pink sign and enjoy the happiest happy hour you could imagine with half priced glasses of Rosés and half priced pizzas Monday to Friday from 4 p.m. – 7 pm.

If you like Rosé then you’ll love frosé, a frozen cocktail which is basically a slushie for adults and legend has it, was invented at Bar Primi in New York. It’s no wonder New York is responsible for this breakthrough thanks to its thriving night life scene and world class food and drink standards. Since that first frosé drink was served it’s taken over menus across the city as a top seller in the summer time.
Drink frosé while taking in a skyline view of its hometown at the Plunge Park Avenue lounge atop the Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel. Along with frosé, this trendy rooftop pool lounge also serves alcoholic ice pops on its summer cocktail menu.
The Hamptons are known for being the seaside getaway destination for the New York elite where urbanites let loose throughout the summer social season at luxurious parties held practically every weekend. Rosé is the drink of choice at these exclusive events and there are even shortages of the wine almost every summer. To cope with the demand Wölffer Estate, a local favorite winery, opened a rosé drive-thru this summer where you can stop by on your way to the beach to pick up rosé by the case, glass or bottle!
