Pink Thing of The Day: Summer Frosé Cocktail

I recently enjoyed my first official cocktail-in-a-bar of the Covid summer and, fittingly, it was a Pink Drink! Pictured above is an enticing, frosty glass of Frosé (frozen rosé wine), which I procured at Versa; a cool ‘rooftop’ restaurant located on the fifth floor of the Renaissance hotel in midtown. While Versa is not literally on the hotel’s roof, which is maybe 20 stories higher up, its spacious patio emulates a rooftop experience, while also allowing for pandemic-compliant social distancing and other important safety guidelines. While enjoying the restaurant’s chill vibe, I happily discovered that if Frosé melts before you can suck it all down, it simply turns into chilled rose wine, as there is no diluting from added ice! Win win!

Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Neon ‘Toast’

I spied this softly glowing Pink Neon Light Fixture from where I was seated at a corner table in the bar-adjacent dining room at Quality Eats, and at first I thought it looked like a pair of pink birds. But once I walked out past the bar, I could see that this illuminated sculpture depicts a pair of hands, grasping delicate cocktail glasses (or possibly champagne flutes, if the tiny, neon bubbles are any indication) and about to raise a celebratory toast. Cheers to that!

ZELOUF+BELL’s new season Stones in a Pond Cocktail Cabinet is the third in their cocktail cabinet series with a signature motif; its doors inlaid with patinated solid brass in an optical pattern inspired by the ripple-effect of stones dropped into a pond.

Patinated hinges allow the glistening doors to completely fold back to reveal an ivory ripple sycamore interior, shagreen work surface and leather-lined drawers with handmade ivory figured sycamore pulls.

The top of the cabinet’s oil-filled rotary damper allows it to fall slowly, closed. The cabinet sits on a patinated brass base. Created in a limited edition of 6, plus 1 AP. Visit This Link for more information.
