An Instagrammer’s dream with the “rose all day” neon sign, the breezy River North bar and restaurant’s “Frosé All Day” drink could be picture perfect for some drinkers. This variation is mixed with white peach puree and a bit of Tito’s Vodka. Though it’s pretty and pink, with a peach sugar rim and garnished with a mint leaf, this refresher leans on the brighter side and screams summer.
