Shop This Post:
Sometimes the best place to grab a drink after a long work week is a casual neighborhood bar. One of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC to hang out in is soho for the amazing shopping, people watching and restaurants. Recently while on a shoot I discovered one of the coziest local spots in the Nolita area of soho called Mother's Ruin. This friendly restaurant bar serves up casual fare and killer drinks in a very informal no frills atmosphere. This is a great spot to meet friends for a quick cocktail before dinner or just for a fun casual night out. During my visit I chose the II Raventos Rosé, which they serve from a tap! It was light and refreshing, the perfect end to a long workday! Because this spot is great for a pre-dinner drink, I dressed up for both events pairing my velvet J Brand skinnies with this older Zara blouse. I love a simple black and white blouse because it can be worn for almost any occasion. The perfect look for drinks with the girls!

What The Experts Say:
An intriguing rosé that conceals the soul of a white wine in its purity and transparence. A splash of Monastrell imparts a special complexity and elegance to Raventós cuvée de Nit, though the classic mineral freshness of this revered Cava house is untouched. A wonderful selection for special occasions with delicate sandwiches, sliced ham, and young cheeses.
What I Say:
This rosé is a perfect after work cocktail or pre-dinner drink. It is super light and refreshing and would pair well with light appetizers or milder cheeses. I am a big fan of rosé and this is a wine I would definetely get again!
