CHICAGO, ILLINOIS The Hamp­ton So­cial restau­rant (pic­tured left) in Chicago, Illinois has prob­a­bly the most fa­mous #Roséall­day In­sta­gram photo op­por­tu­nity in the world. In­spired by the beach side 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 Rosé and half priced piz­zas Mon­day to Fri­day from 4-7 pm.

While you’re in town stay in­side the beau­ti­fully re­stored land­mark build­ing, the Chicago Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion Ho­tel and en­joy the pop­u­lar rooftop restau­rant, Cindy’s.

PROVENCE, FRANCE Hard core fans of the pink drink can go straight to the source - Provence. Thanks to its cli­mate and lo­ca­tion, gen­er­a­tions of ex­pert wine­mak­ers have been pro­duc­ing award win­ning rosé in the re­gion. Chances are if you drink the pink bub­bly bev­er­age, you’ve tasted one from here! A wine tour through Provence is a trip for a true Rosé afi­cionado to show off their knowl­edge.

It’s no won­der the Big Ap­ple is re­spon­si­ble for this break­through thanks to its thriv­ing night life scene, world class food and drink stan­dards. Cool down and en­joy some frosé while tak­ing in a sky­line view of its home­town at the Plunge Park Av­enue lounge (pic­tured cen­ter right) atop the Gan­sevoort Park Av­enue Ho­tel. This trendy rooftop pool lounge also serves al­co­holic ice pops on its sum­mer cock­tail menu.


Fi­nally, we have the Hamp­tons, where there seems to be short­age of rosé al­most ev­ery sum­mer! Known for be­ing the sea­side get­away for New York’s elite, it’s here where ur­ban­ites let loose at ex­trav­a­gant sum­mer par­ties, held al­most ev­ery week­end. Not sur­pris­ingly, rosé, frosé or any­thing pink and bub­bly, is the drink of choice at these ex­clu­sive events, which might ex­plain the short­ages. To cope with the de­mand Wölf­fer Es­tate, a lo­cal win­ery, opened a rosé drive-thru (pic­tured right) this sum­mer where you can stop by on your way to the beach to pick up rosé by the case, glass or bot­tle!
