By now, you probably know just how popular rosé is. On Long Island, it’s a smash hit just about everywhere it’s poured.

But maybe you haven’t tried Frose´, which, yup, you guessed it, is a frozen version of your favorite pink beverage.

Recipes vary, but they usually involve a sweetener, berries for garnish and of course, rosé.

Here are some of the best places to try it.

Corey Creek Tap Room, Southold

This tasting room, an outpost of Bedell Cellars serving wine from a tap, is also known for offering a Frosé. It’s sweet, slushy and hits the spot when the mercury inches toward triple-digits. Guests can enjoy it while sitting out on a deck that overlooks acres of vines or inside the small but cheerfully decorated tasting room that’s accented by faded-blue furnishings. 

Del Vino Vineyards, Northport

This off-the-fork vineyard has developed a cult following since it opened in 2018. It’s known for its live entertainment, food and wine. It’s also quickly become one of the most popular spots to drink Frosé on Long Island. People start flocking from east and west to sit on the lawn overlooking the vineyard and sip the beverage when it’s released every spring. The vineyard also introduced a cab crush/ Frosé blend that’s bolder than its cousin, the original Frosé.

Salt & Barrel, Bay Shore

This Bay Shore spot, owned by the same family behind the iconic Fire Island establishment Flynn’s, has a Brooklyn-meets-Montauk feel. Whether you sit in the plush, teal chairs in the dining room or pull up a black leather stool at the large white-marble bar, you’ll want to give the Frosé a try. The recipe calls for French rosé, vodka, lemon juice and strawberry syrup. But the secret sauce is the preparation: The bar staff lets the mixture twirl all night, enhancing the sweetness. 

Pasta Pasta, Port Jefferson

This restaurant has been around for more than two decades, standing the test of time in a pandemic and the oft-fickle restaurant scene down Port. Part of the reason: It doesn’t rest on its laurels. The spot known for its approachable Italian classics recently teamed up with North Fork winery Sannino to create a refreshing take on Frosé. It’s an ideal way to kick off brunch or as a dinner digestif. 

Broadway Market, Rocky Point

This North Shore spot is named for the Great White Way in the City that Never Sleeps. And, appropriately, Broadway Market never stops selling Frosé — even when it’s freezing. The winter version involves red wine, blood orange juice and cantaloupe. Now that the weather is warming expect a sipper with the pink stuff and strawberries, served in a mason jar.
