Thirsty Thursday: What kind of vino should I crush for the Day of Labor?
What: Wölffer Rosé
Where can I get it? Wölffer Estate Vineyard (139 Sagg Road in Sagaponack) or any resto in the Hamptons (except Ruschbangers, wtf.)
Why does it rule? It’s cheap, it’s sweet, and it’s made in my happy place. Oh, and I like it almost as much or more than prosecco. That’s how good it is.
Tell me about the taste: This super sweet citrusy rosé (with hints of grapefruit and peach) has a little fizz to it. For all the winos, the blend is: 58% Merlot, 24% Chardonnay, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Pinot Noir and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.
I had an expensive smoothie and I liked it….
I’m a sheep. It’s official.
What I ordered: The Immune Smoothie (Made with banana, rice milk, orange juice, peaches, strawberries, vitamin c, and Echinacea). Cost to me: $6.95 and 245 calories. #priceybutyummy
Why it was awesome: I was a little under the weather this weekend (no, actually sick. Not hung over) and was looking for something to help me turn the corner. 8 hours post smoothie, I felt better. Coincidence? Maybe. But either way it tasted awesome. All the ingredients were natural (no rando extra sugar), the OJ was fresh squeezed, and the usually gross Echinacea was tasteless. Another refreshing quality: the size small is actually big.
About Elixir: Opened in 1999 as a natural smoothie bar, Elixir has expanded into juice and healthy food. Everything is 100% pure, including the supplements (no creepy chemicals here). Since my first visit, I’ve been back and am happy to report that this chain has a mom and pop feel to it. Read: They give New Yorkers the attention they believe they deserve. But if you don’t feeling like walking or talking to strangers, you can simply order on seamless.
