In feel-good news that’s fitting for Friday, listen up: tomorrow is National Rosé Day.

To mark the honourable June 13 occasion, we’ve dreamt up four ideal ways for you to celebrate the special day (which isn’t technically a holiday, but probably should be).

Without further adieu, here’s how you can rosé all day in Toronto on Saturday:

Frozé from Cactus Club

Yes indeed. While you can’t sip frosé on the Cactus Club patio right now, this joint will send its iconic drink straight to your door. The Frosé at Home pack is available online for pickup or delivery, and it includes one bottle of frosé premix, two 50 ml bottles of vodka and bottle of rosé for $29.99. All you need is ice and a blender to DIY six servings of this summery treat.

Indulge in a shmancy bottle

In response to the pandemic, several bars and restaurants across the city converted their operations into for-delivery bottle shops, offering wine and other libations alongside small snacks like chips and crackers.

And these joints aren’t just selling Jackson-Triggs, oh no! Instead, the offerings include bottles you’re unlikely to find on the shelves of your neighbourhood LCBO.

Check out Botl Shop, Paradise Grapevine, The Federal, Grape Witches, and Piquette as starting-points for diving into the world of wines, beyond the liq-bo assortment.

This is a classic weekend activity, but we’d be remiss not to mention it should be on your to-do list ahead of National Rosé Day! This Instagram account keeps users posted on the wait times at LCBO locations across the city, so be sure to reference it before you head out for your errand.

If you’re ultra into planning ahead, you can check the LCBO’s webpage dedicated to rosé wines to discover which bottles are available at the store nearest you.

Don’t drink? Good thing it’s flower season!

Euclid Farms is a chemical-free, urban flower farm and forest operating in the West Queen West neighbourhood. They’re accepting Instagram DMs regarding pickups, Wednesdays to Saturdays, for special occasions and “just because” indulgences alike. If you’re not looking to drink wine this National Rosé Day, perhaps treating yourself to some roses is your way of celebrating instead.

Whether you’re clinking a wine glass or filling a vase with water, happy National Rosé Day to you!
