WHAT TO POP FOR POPS

A SPARLKING GOOD TIME ON NANTUCKET Mid-August is fast approaching and while some people are packing their bags to head back to school, others are reveling in the beautiful summer beach days that make Nantucket what it is. What better way to embrace this feeling than with music, dancing and fireworks at one of Nantucket’s best beaches. ‘Pops on Nantucket’ is an annual fundraiser, and the largest of its kind, to benefit the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket and help to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community. Well, I’ll drink to that! Here is a quick list of sparkling options to help you celebrate and boogie the night away at this frolicking, fun beachside event.

Pleasures of Drinking Pink

Summer on Nantucket has become synonymous with drinking rosé wine. On the boat, at the beach, sipping it waterfront with breakfast, lunch or dinner are just a few occasions where one can be caught with a full glass of pink pleasure in their hand. With such variety and spice among all the new, unique rosé selections available these days, drinking pink is now acceptable throughout the year. Which rosé wine you choose to drink, however, should change with the season just like your other eating and drinking habits do. As summer is winding down, this is the perfect time to transition into enjoying a different style of rosé than the light, refreshing one you would imbibe during the dog days of summertime.  Being on the cusp of fall, here is a selection of tried-and-true American-made rosés worthy of consideration and reflection as we transition into my favorite season.
