Sometimes we find that instead of dividing the year up by what season we’re in, we like to divide it based on what wine we’re drinking. Winters are reserved for robust reds, late summers for crisp whites, and for the past few weeks it’s been allllll about that rosé. We’re pretty sure nothing feels more like summer than a glass of that perfectly pink wine, and by the looks of the bottles and carafes we’ve been eyeing on people’s sidewalk dining tables it appears that the rest of NYC agrees. So if you’re down with declaring it rosé season, here’s how you can get your fix.

Drinking on patios and rooftop is great and all, but if you’re looking to be close to the water there’s nothing like drinking on a boat. Luckily, our favorite rosé friendly bar, Grand Banks, is conveniently located on a boat, and that’s where you’re likely to find us tonight.

New York is #YESWAYROSÉ
(Thank you to the geniuses behind one of our favorite hashtags), and these rosé centric events surely prove it. Check out Sosh
for various drinking events including one that involves drinking rosé on a yacht
and another that involved a $5 rosé happy hour
. Holy shit is right. And if you’re looking for a bit of rosé education, check out classes at New York Vinters
. They’re offering an entire afternoon dedicated to learning about “Bad Ass Roses” which, to us, definitely sounds really badass itself.

It’s true that you can drink rosé nearly everywhere wine is served, but some places are better suited than others. Everyone’s got a preference, so to make sure our picks were well rounded we consulted the girls over at CFDA and asked them where they most like to drink their rosé. Here were their picks for premium rosé consumption
at the Bowery Hotel. Come for that outdoor patio. 335 Bowery, New York, NY 10003

Contrary to what you might think, rosé is not just for drinking. It mostly is, yes, but you know here at TTS we’re always looking for ways to wear our food and eat our clothes, so we’ve found a few ways you can literally rock rosé all day without even pouring a glass.

For your rosé fix at home, sure, you could head to the liquor store and buy a bottle. Or you could scoop up a few bottles of The Fat Jew’s own label, White Girl Rosé, because that’s a whole lot more fun. And for dessert, rosé gumdrops from QUIN because why not?
