Don't just tip back a glass (or two) next time you're craving rosé. Here, we found five ways to elevate your rosé-drinking ways out East—including a cocktail that'll impress your guests and a rosé cider that goes down easy.
Make a Rosé Ice Pop Cocktail
At your next pool party or summer soirée, take a tip from the Conrad New York's drink menu: The hotel's Loopy Doop Rooftop Bar proffers the popular Prosecco and Ice Pop sipper. Instead of prosecco, chill each glass of rosé you serve with a vibrant, fruity pop for a cooling Hamptons treat.
Order Navy Beach’s Rosé Sangria
Montauk's Navy Beach uses rosé as the base for its signature Saintgria Rosa. The already-refreshing wine gets even more summery with the addition of fresh fruit—like peaches and grapes—and a sweet splash of St-Germain. 16 Navy Road, Montauk, 668-6868
Grab a Four-Pack of Rosé Cider
Hamptonites flock to Wölffer Estate Vineyard for its outstanding rosé, and its dry rosé cider—which introduces a tangy take on the typical rosé—is equally delicious. Take the portable glass bottle four-pack along with you to the beach or carry it out back to sip poolside. 139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack, 537-5106
Stock Up on Rosé from the South of France
Remember last summer's rosé shortage? Play it safe by stocking up on some in-demand bottles with Sherry-Lehmann Wine and Spirits' 12-bottle Hamptons Rosé Sampler, which includes two bottles each of Domaine Ott Romassan Rosé 2013, Chateâu Miraval Rosé "Pitt & Jolie" 2014, Chateâu Margui Rosé 2014, Vie Vite Rosé 2014, Domaine Gavoty 2013, and D’Esclans Cote de Provence Whispering Angel Rose 2014. You don't even have to lug it out East: Order by 3 pm on Fridays and get it delievered to your Hamptons home. 505 Park Ave., New York, 212-838-7500
Knowing that East Enders like to guzzle their rosé, Harvest on Fort Pond created the Refreshing Rosé, a mix of Provence rosé, fruit liqueur, and cucumber vodka. The not-too-sweet cocktail will quench your thirst after a long, hot day spent by the pool. 11 S. Emery St., Montauk, 668-5574
