yes way frosé
This summer I am fully embracing the basic with my new found love of frosé. Frosé (as if you didn’t know) is basically an adult slushie made with frozen rosé and sometimes other alcohol or fruits. My first wine slushie experience happened in Nashville way back in March at the Grinder’s Switch Winery stand at Granary Village and I was hooked. I was ecstatic to see the trend has made its way to Boston this summer—and seemingly everywhere else, judging by my Instagram feed. While frosé by itself is a perfect summer drink, I am firmly of the opinion that any drink tastes better when enjoyed outdoors. As much as I want to keep these (not so) secret places to myself, here are a few of my favorite places to grab a frosé or two this summer.
One of the newest restaurants in Southie, Publico complements great food with unique drinks. Their brunch drinks are some of my favorites, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about. The frosé is only available in the courtyard, which is exactly where you’d want to sit on a nice summer day anyways. The star of the space is, without a doubt, the marble bar which complemented by lush greenery, comfy couches, and beautiful fire pits. Behind the bar is a slushie machine, which transforms the rosé to its frozen better half. Stop by for a glass and the mais crepes or sour dough buns and enjoy.
Back Bay Social Club is one of Boston’s staples. I’ve never had a bad meal or drink here and I know I can always count on it as a place to bring friends or family. Plus, the patio offers a front seat to some of the best people watching in Boston. You could be forgiven for thinking this patio was in almost any city in Europe, complete with woven chairs, marble tables, and black and white tile details. The frosé is delicious and comes in a generous portion. Perfect stop for a break from your shopping on Newbury Street or the Prudential Center.
Nearly everyone I know has been effusive in their praise of this new South End hot spot. Honestly, anywhere that offers the combination of a patio, cheese selection, and croque monsieurs is a winner in my eyes. Transforming the space that was formerly Kitchen into a neighborhood wine bar, Frenchie offers “modern cuisine with a French touch and a lot of great wines.” Among those great wines is the frosé. Patio seating is limited, but the back of the restaurant has a beautiful greenhouse section. It’s like being outside, but with climate control.
Committee, in my opinion, has one of the most stunning interiors in Boston. If you’re doin’ it for the ‘gram, you cannot go wrong with the vibrant dishes and enviable drinks to be found here. All potential likes aside, the food tastes as good, if not better, as it looks. One of the first places to bring frosé to Boston, Committee adds a unique twist with elderflower and honey rosewater. If frosé isn’t your thing, they also offer a daily slushie special on their expansive Fort Point Patio.
