I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but summer is almost ending. I’ll wait a moment while you get your current panic attack in check. But yes, summer is coming to a close—sorry if I re-triggered you—and that means time is running out on doing fun, basic summery shit like getting drunk on rooftops and Instagramming popsicles you don’t eat. I know, it like, just got nice out and already they’re taking it all away. And this is why we can’t have nice things. So before you fall into a bottomless pit of despair and pumpkin spice lattes, you need to head to Plunge at the Gansevoort Meatpacking and try their new signature boozy push pops. Yes, you read that correctly. Alcohol. Popsicles. Your dream has come true: You can eat while getting drunk AND it looks great on your Instagram. You can thank me when your picture hits triple digit likes and when you’re drafting a drunk text to your ex. Okay, maybe don’t do the second thing. IDK. Live your best life.
Plunge at Gansevoort Meatpacking is a rooftop—hold your squeals of joy—and it’s gorg. It’s in meatpacking (obviously) so you get to feel a little bougie while you get drunk off shit you ate as a kid. My 7-year-old self would be so proud. And the Instagram potential views from Plunge are gorg—you can see the Hudson River (it looks beautiful and not disgusting from all the way up there) and the skyline. There is also a pool. I unfortunately didn’t get to eat these popsicles in the pool which is currently a major life regret. I honestly don’t even know if that’s technically allowed, but whatever. It is a personal goal of mine, and I am not stopping until I achieve it.
The popsicles come in three flavors. Essentially this means that you must order three at once and no one is allowed to judge you for triple-fisting. It’s not a problem, it’s an enthusiasm, ok?
1. Coco Rosé
Basics, look no further. An alcoholic popsicle that is pink and has rosé—this is like, your Holy Grail. It combines Flos de Pinoso Rosado with organic coconut manna (is that like, what God gave to the Israelites when they were walking through the desert for 40 years? Unclear), coconut water and sugar. It’s the perfect refreshing treat given the amount of thirsty pictures you’re going to post with it later.
2. Orange Pinot Gris
As the name implies, it contains Donkey & Goat Ramato Pinot Gris and sugar. You know that friend who “isn’t going out” because she’s “giving up hard alcohol”? This one’s for her. It’s just wine. Nobody can say no to wine.
3. Fruity Sangria
It is what it sounds like. Sangria. Sangria with red wine, cointreau, and apple brandy, to be exact. I like this one because there are actual chunks of fruit in it so I got to feel semi-healthy while actively destroying my liver in the name of Instagram likes hanging out with my friends.
I know you and your friends hate making plans, so you are welcome for making your weekend plans for you. Just like, hurry up before everyone gets the same genius idea and your feed is full of these popsicles.
