Frosé all Day
Willa Jean, 611 O’Keefe Ave, New Orleans, LA 70113
Willa Jean is the only place in town making this trendy pink beverage, and that’s just one of the many reasons we love them so much. Not only is there lots of pink wine blended into these, but a little added vodka means 1.5 frosés in, the buzz is real. So tasty, and so refreshing!

Our fave on the Ace’s menu, this purple drank is the absolutely perfect summer sipper while sitting poolside taking in the views of or lovely city.

The drinks are changed up quite frequently, and often include ingredients that you wouldn’t expect in your daiquiri, but they never disappoint the tastebuds.
