10 Essential Frosé Cocktails From Around The Country

What is frosé? You may as well be asking: What is summer? Because a frozen rosé slushie is a summer essential. Or, at least, it was the official drink of summer 2016 — according to Bon Appétit. And since the trend stormed last year's warm-weather sipping scene, it doesn't appear to have lost much (or any) traction for the upcoming season.

Summer has yet to officially arrive, and we've already been seeing the chilly pink beverage everywhere — from rooftop bars to boozy brunches and peppered across outdoor restaurant patios. Shots of these frosted glasses, complete with flower petals and pastel straws, have been plastered across our Instagram feeds (#frosé) for weeks now.

But instead of whipping up our own at home, we've decided to round up our top ten from around the country, and potentially plan a summer road trip? So scroll on to see our hit list of the frostiest frosés — and get to sippin'.
