Rosé has always been equated with the summer, and what better way to drink it than outside. Sit and relax beneath the sparkling lights of the veranda or vibrant garden as you try any of the place’s three rosé options, such as an imported Sabine or a sparkling Brut Rosé from France. If you’re planning to go to brunch on Saturday, be sure to sip on Harper’s Strawberry Swing cocktail, which is made of sparkling rosé, vodka, lemon and strawberry. 31 S. 18th St., 267.886.8556, harpersgardenphilly.com
