There’s no doubt about it that rosé is the unofficial drink of the summer. With festivals centered around the millennial-pink wine (Pinknic, La Nuit en Rose) and phrases like “rosé all day” becoming colloquial, it’s no wonder that the best bars in NYC wasted no time finding ways to please both Instagram and its customers. And it turns out, you just needed to add ice and a few mix-ins to make the slushy sensation known as frosé. Whether sipping at a sky-high rooftop bar or one of the city’s best cocktail bars, here’s where to find frozen rosé in NYC.

This Park Slope darling keeps it simple with a blend of Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rosé 2016 and either Rootdown Rosé or Trousseau 2016. The concoction is topped off with a sprig of mint for a refreshing kick. Bonus points for drinking it in the restaurant's backyard.
Korean food as a whole has expanded in breadth and ambition in recent years, but nothing has seen a boost quite like Korean barbecue, as evidenced by this Michelin-starred (relative) newcomer. And it's catching on quick to the New York scene, offering up Insta-worthy frosés with cute flamingo garnishes.
The 30,000-square-foot French market in FiDi is divided into to-go stalls, the Beaubourg brasserie and Le Bar, the casual cocktail den. Both sit-down venues are serving a seasonal frosé, a mix of Grey Goose Melon, Giffard crème de Peche, pressed lemon, Cointreau and Provencal Rosé. Enjoy "Frosé All Day" in Beaubourg's white-tiled dining room, or at Le Bar's soapstone bar.
Rick Aurigemma (Corkbuzz), Chris Reda (Gansevoort Market) and Sean Maguire took over the former 310 Lounge space as a summer pet project, gutting the place and revamping it with reclaimed Pennsylvanian wood and steam radiators salvaged from a Brooklyn yard. Sidle up to the chevron-patterned bar for the treacly frosé, a mix of sweet vernmouth, lemon juice, simple sugar and strawberry purée. The cocktail is topped with fresh strawberry and a sprig of mint.
Years after shuttering its doors in Alphabet City, the sister to Greenpoint’s Ramona has joined its sibling in Brooklyn with this Cobble Hill barroom. The cocktail menu, organized by spirit, is filled with literary-named drinks. The seasonal selection includes a Salted Watermelon Rosé (garnished with a little watermelon slice), which can be enjoyed in its string-lit backyard.
