The Best Wines & Cocktails To Celebrate National Rosé Day

A friendly reminder that Saturday, June 9 is National Rosé Day.  It is held every year on the second Saturday in June to pay homage to the pleasing summertime wine. The blushy beverage is pretty and reminds us that life is filled with small moments of beauty.  So fete the occasion with friends!  Throwing a pink party? We have listed a few cocktail recipes to serve with your variety of rosy-hued dishes and décor.  We have also selected a handful of wines- some we sampled at La Nuit En Rosé last month. Or, if skipping the party and just looking for where to go in NYC for National Rosé Day, we have that as well.

Whether you prefer to enjoy your rosé still or bubbly, sweet or dry, with a hue that is a deep pink or more orange, raise a glass to the 13 ways to drink rosé this summer.

Where to Dine

Oscar Wilde

NYC’s longest continuous bar dedicated to the literary legend is serving oysters paired with Rosé Cava.  Enjoy a dozen oysters available paired with with Mata I Coloma Cupada Brut Rosé Cava.  A bright, crisp, refreshing wine with a nice acidity pairs well with oysters.
