Best South Florida Spots to Chill with Frosé - blog post image

There’s nothing dainty about summer in Miami. The heat index swells, inhumane levels of humidity wreak havoc on once-perfect hair, and people are still expected to hold a job instead of lounging on South Florida’s beaches all day. Thank goodness someone invented a wine slushy to make everything okay. Here’s 15 spots where one will find the top contenders.

Lona Cocina Tequileria

Mexican chef Pablo Salas brought his much-talked about dishes to the U.S. with this Broward outpost in the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. Salas enjoys pushing the envelope on traditional south-of-the-border cuisine by adding a bit of a twist, such as his crab meat guacamole and salmon mole. Sure, there are numerous bottles of tequilas here, and even a tequila locker for those wanting to keep their prized favorite under lock and key, but consider kicking off the meal with the El Aché Frosé, featuring Faustino frozen rosé and a citrus blend — and saving the shots for later.

Louie Bossi's Ristorante Bar Pizzeria

This boisterous and fun eatery has everything one might love that is Italian — pastas, breads, cured salumi, and pizza. As it turns out, it also offers its own rendition of a frosé. The Aperol Slushy is a nod to “The Boot” and includes prosecco, peach puree, and Aperol, and serves as a recommended starter for, what’s sure to be, a memorable feast.

Portico Beer & Wine Garden

After taking a stab at the ginormous Jenga, cornhole, and ping pong, cool off with an order of frosé at this Diplomat Beach Resort outdoor venue. The slushy treat is offered by the glass or pitcher where guests can pair it with shareable, Italian bites while enjoying views of the Intracoastal Waterway. A pitcher or two may also improve your game.

Call Me Gaby

One can imagine that this is where Sophia Loren would kick off her shoes and hang for a while if she were to sneak into Miami and crave a pizza and unpretentious ambiance. Pick one of the comfy outdoor couches in the expansive patio to enjoy a casual Italian meal. Italians are all about the aperitif, so why not ring in summer with Call Me Gaby’s frosé, made with rosé wine from Provence, Aperol, grapefruit juice, and rose water.
