Best Frozen Rose (Frose) Locations in Illinois You Must Visit

During a hot summer you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better drink than an ice-cold frosé.

There are two ways to secure a frosé when it’s hot: make it at home (dubious results at best) or go to a professional.

Luckily, three of the best frosé makers in America are in Illinois.

Yelp has compiled a list of the Top 25 frosés worth the brain freezeand I was pleasantly surprised to see that The Land of Lincoln was so well known.

One of the best in America landed in the top 10. It’s called The Hampton Social and is located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.

The Hampton Social is supposed to make you feel like you’re actually in the ritzy Hamptons, and Yelp says, “What evokes a summer day in the Hamptons more than a cool glass of frosé with beautiful garnish.”

While The Hampton Social ranked 8th overall, just further down the list you’ll find The Whale Chicago, where Salena C. said they couldn’t pass up their frosé, which was “perfection.”

The other place on the list that specializes in making mean frosé is The VIG, also based in Chicago.

Marcy Y. at The VIG called the frosé “just what was needed after a walk from downtown and needing some cooling down.”

The VIG is located at 1527 North Wells Street.

You can visit The Whale Chicago at 2427 North Milwaukee Avenue and The Hampton Social at 353 West Hubbard Street.

WATCH: The best beers from every state

To find the best beer in each state and Washington DC, Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that collects beer user ratings in real time. BeerAdvocate makes its decisions by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington DC and applying a weighted rank to each state. The weighted ranking pulls the beer toward the average of the list based on the number of reviews it has and aims to move lesser-known beers up in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings are eligible; we went a step further by only including beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
