I was enjoying myself at the NCYWFF’sGrand Tasting when I spotted this lovely bottle of Pink Gin, with its equally inviting Pink Label, so I went in for a closer look. Here’s what I was able to find out about this product from the Interwebs:
From the country of Spain comes LariosRosé Mediterranean Flavored Gin; refreshing, smooth, and bright with local Valencia citrus. The flavors perfectly encapsulate the taste of the Mediterranean with citrus fruits rounded off with the perfectly sweet taste of strawberry. Silky and smooth with a predominantly strawberry finish.
I think this spirit is ideally suited for a Gin Fizz! If you can’t find Larios intoxicating pink treat in your local liquor store, you can by it online Here.
Ah, Summer is here and we all want frozen cocktails on demand, amiright? There’s nothing like a frosty, buzz-inducing beverage to help you beat the heat, poolside or inside. But who wants to take a time out to break out the blender when you’re in the middle of relaxing at home? I will take a hard pass on that.
If you suspect that we are getting a little bit desperate to find Pink Things for featuring in this weekly space, you would be correct. Thankfully, the Pink Drinks of summer are not only keeping us refreshed, hydrated, and slightly buzzed, but they also make a nice post, don’t they? This tall cool one is the Watermelon Daiquiri offered at Bottino Restaurant in Chelsea. Bottino specializes in delicious homemade pastas and other Italian favorites, and it has the most insanely lush backyard garden / covered patio for a safe and relaxed dining experience. At this time in our lives when little things mean so much, we look forward to a future visit!
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 Renaissancehotel 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!

Over the summer, I attended This Rad Party to celebrate the release of the Volkswagen Limited Edition #PinkBeetle. In keeping with Pink theme, they served refreshing pink drinks in pink glasses, delivered on a pink tray! Oh, the pinkness!
