Watr
Grab a cocktail in Miami Beach at Watr at The 1 Rooftop

For the fun and fabulous in Miami Beach

Everyone knows the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach is the ultimate place for glitz and glam in Miami Beach. Whether dancing the night away at LIV nightclub or lounging in a posh poolside cabana, the Fontainebleau is the place to see and be seen. “There is no better place to sip on rosé than La Côte,” says John Riccardo, Director of Signature Dining & Director of Beverage at the Fontainebleau. “La Côte captures the essence of today’s modern beach club with open-air spaces, teak frame cabanas featuring billowy sheer fabric, beautifully upholstered lounge furniture and seating with dramatic ocean views.” And, of course, there’s that high-energy Fontainebleau poolscape.

While soaking up killer rooftop ocean views that go on for miles, sip on a glass of a delectable frozen pink drink called “Frosé All Day” at 1 Hotel South Beach’s WATR. A creative combination of rosé wine, Skyy Vodka, peach, Lillet Rouge and fresh citrus, "it’s the perfect refreshing rosé cocktail for any occasion,” says Steven Minor, Director of Beverage at 1 Hotel South Beach. “What makes it unique is the addition of Lillet Rouge - a lightly spiced, bitter aperitif wine that gives it a distinguished tartness." Sounds tasty.

Speaking of frosé, here are some great places to enjoy that delicious and refreshing frozen rosé wine cocktail—the perfect cool-down from the warm Miami sun.

Of course, Rose Bar at the Delano is always on the must-visit list for a sophisticated cocktail or glass of wine before dinner. For an equally sultry mood, The Bar & Courtyard at The Setai, with its towering pergolas made of rich wood and its iconic serenity pond, makes for an elegant backdrop for pre-dinner drinks. Enjoy a curated selection of rosé wines and champagnes by the glass including Louis Roederer, as well as creative cocktails with an Asian twist.

For the in-the-know crowd in Key Biscayne

There are plenty of places with drop-dead gorgeous ocean views to check out in Virginia Key and Key Biscayne.

Arguably the home to the best views in all of Miami, the Rusty Pelican is an iconic waterfront restaurant with loads of charm. “Sipping rosé is perfect for any time of the day here,” says Devin Perez, Assistant General Manager at the Rusty Pelican. “The views are unlike any other in Miami, with the backdrop of the Downtown Miami skyline reflected in the blue waters of Biscayne Bay. The curated wine list offers a variety of labels including vintages, rosé champagne, and dry rosé from France, Spain, the U.S. and South America.” Stick around for sunset and you’ll catch quite the show.

Venture a little further into the affluent community of Key Biscayne and discover a few hidden beachfront gems. “Escape to a rosé sipping paradise, where guests have a bevy of imbibing options,” says Jorge Mendoza, Sommelier at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami. “From kicking back barefoot in the sand to a more elegant atmosphere, Lightkeepers, Dune Burgers on the Beach and Cantina will certainly please with beachfront views, warm ocean breezes, fantastic food and exceptional service.” The Sunday brunch at Lightkeepers is always a haute place to mix and mingle with spectacular ocean views.

Seaspice

For the creative urbanites in the city

Yacht enthusiasts flock to the waterfront Seaspice, a swanky restaurant on the Miami River with 250 feet of private docking privileges. “Seaspice exemplifies alfresco dining at its best,” says owner Maryam Miranda. “The yachts cruise by as you sip rosé, and for a moment you can relax and feel as if you’re taking in the breeze of the Cote d’Azur.” Watch the boats go by and pair a bottle of rosé with dishes by talented Executive Chef Angel Leon and his eclectic menu inspired by the Mediterranean.

In the eclectic Coconut Grove neighborhood, you can bask in a trellised outdoor garden terrace decked out with oversized planters, natural wood tables and comfy woven chairs—all in a lush tropical setting. “The garden at Isabelle’s is the perfect spot to sip rosé in Coconut Grove,” says Nicole Frankel, Marketing & Events Manager at Isabelle’s Grill Room and Garden at The Ritz-Carlton, Coconut Grove. “This outdoor oasis is the most-sought after destination for sipping rosé and stepping away from reality anytime of the day.”

For a unique twist, have you ever tried Indian food and rosé together? It turns out it’s quite the match at Maska, a vibrant iteration of Chef Mathur’s Michelin-rated restaurants in New York City. You can indulge in kebabs and octopus masala and “sip rosé under the glitterati of our chandeliers, ornate mirrors and chic murals,” says Shamsu Lalani, partner and general manager at Maska, located in Miami’s Midtown area.

Featuring a haute craft cocktail scene in the artsy Wynwood neighborhood, Beaker & Gray’s bar director Ben Potts specializes in concocting brand new rosé-inspired recipes that tantalize taste buds. "Rosé is a great summer wine, but it’s even better when you add flavors that elevate the wine,” says Potts. “At Beaker & Gray, we serve a wine cocktail called Rosé Colored Glasses, which combines the flavors of rosé, watermelon, rosemary and elderflower, for the perfectly refreshing drink to sip outdoors.” It’s a refreshing take on a classic.

No matter where you choose to sip rosé this summer, Miami has the tropical vibe that will instantly transport you to vacation mode.
