Bubbly, still, semi-sparkling or frozen, rosé is decidedly the go-to drink of the summer. Here are a few places to sip the sweet, pastel pink-hued wine in the Valley.
We’re all familiar with the concept of froyo, and frozen alcoholic bevs are the next frontier in trendy chilled treats. Try the Watermelon Frozé from inventive cocktail parlor Pobrecito for a refreshing twist on this summer staple. Made with watermelon, Giffard peach, lemon, aperol and dry white whine, this tart, fruit-forward frozen cocktail is sure to hit the spot.
