Welcome to one of the BEST weekends of the year!! It's not too late to throw together something festive. Get inspiration from The Sweetest Occasion's 20 Red, White & Blue Memorial Day Party Ideas and The New York Times Memorial Day Picnic board on Pinterest.

For me, the time for rosé has officially begun - I had my first glass(es) of the season last week. I had been waiting for the perfect scenario to order it - a beautiful location, sunny weather... for some reason I felt it needed to be perfect. I even joked with a friend that I was treating it as seriously as losing my virginity. In that case, she said, I'd better just get it over with. Ha! Here are 5 great rosés to look out for: Everything's Coming Up Rosés (Food & Wine)

Summer is also the season for punch Ready to Roll with the Punches (NYT)...

...and spritzers All That Sparkles: 5 Spritzer Cocktails (PUNCH)

...and more wine Summer's Winners: 20 Wines Under $20 (NYT)

...and cocktails Make Mine Cool & Easy (NYT)

After all those, you're gonna need something to snack on. Let's start with the classic cheese straw: Straws They'll Grasp At (NYT)

For those in NYC, Tasting Table put together a guide to the Best Picnic Provisions near local parks. I love that my favorite Foragers made the list! (If it was possible to be BFF with a market, Foragers would be mine.) Also check this out: Every Summer Outdoor Movie Screening in NYC, Now in One Calendar (Thrillist)

Cheers!
