What’s in Your Fridge: Yes Way Rosé

  • In this week’s edition of What’s in Your Fridge, meet Yes Way Rosé creators Nikki Huganir and Erica Blumenthal, pictured here on Nikki's Lower Éast Side stoop. Equally as enthusiastic about pink wine? Shop Yes Way Rosé swag here.
  • "We collect wine, we drink wine, we talk about wine. That's definitely a perk of operating Yes Way Rosé."
  • "We have a huge sweet tooth. We're addicted to candy, especially gummy bears, which are really good to keep in the fridge because then you can use them as non-melting ice cubes. We also have peanut butter, obviously. And Kit Kats. I don't need a big bottle of ketchup, so I keep the packets from delivery just in case someone needs any."
  • Erica lives next to Momofuku: "It's very dangerous, but it's good to have their cake truffles on hand. We call the strawberry lemon cake truffles "Rosé Lemon Pink Truffles," because they're the perfect color -- and they're delicious." And Nikki's bracelet-thing? "This is my portable champagne wristlet. It’s a bracelet slash champagne bottle holder — they’re all the rage! The bag of the season! And it's holding Yes Way Rosé approved champagne — Nicolas Feuillatte."
  • "Always have a roast chicken in the fridge. You can get a week of food out of it. Great for people who don’t cook. Put in on top of arugula, maybe add a little tomato, avocado, parmesan cheese, and you’re good to go. This Mike's Hot Honey is amazing. It’s a little spicy and is really good on pizza crust. But what we really use it for is an epic cheese plate. Rosé and cheese plates -- that's how we conduct business. It’s definitely the answer to happiness in the work place."
  • "Who doesn’t need a box of rosé? Boxed rosé is great for parties because it's very cost-efficient. This Vrac box has about four bottles of wine in there for about 27 dollars! And that down there is the champagne drawer."
  • "We can’t fit all of our rosé in this fridge, but this is a good groupDuzsi Tamas is Hungarian. The next bottle is Lorenza, it's a California rosé. After that, Wolffer — a New York staple. This one has a twist-off cap, perfect for going to the beach. Then we have a sparkling French number -- Pascal Pibaleau 'La Perlette' Sparkling Rose, which we bought from Dandelion Wine in Greenpoint because the bottle was so pretty. We haven't tried this Paumanok rosé yet, but it's from the North Fork of Long Island. We love to try ones we’ve never heard of."
  • "Summer Water -- this is our wine. It's just about the best thing ever. It really is like water. It's available on Club W -- an online, direct-to-consumer wine company. They make all of their own wines, which are only sold on their website. We partnered with them to make ours. We did the name, the design -- really got to put the Yes Way Rosé stamp on it. It also happens to be delicious, and from Napa Valley. It’s very crisp and flavorful, but not overwhelming. We like to think of it as 'easy drinking.'"
  • "Bagel Bites are freezer essentials."
  • "In our freezer, we have rosé ice cubes. You can do a few fun things with them. For one, you can just eat them. But then you can also make a spritzer, and then use the ice cubes in that. They begin to melt, and they make this really pretty, pink swirly drink. We love ice cream. This stuff, Talenti, is technically gelato, but either way you have to get two flavors so that you can mix them together. Here we have 'Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup' and 'Simply Strawberry.' We're also partial to 'Mediterranean Mint.' Finally, we have Choco Tacos. Sometimes you just need these things, especially in the summer when it’s hot. The best is when you forget you have them, and then you open your freezer and it’s like: YESSS."

We recently peeked inside the fridge of vintage devotee Sami Miro who knows the best sushi in LA. In this week’s edition of What’s in Your Fridge, NY-based Yes Way Rosé creators Nikki Huganir and Erica Blumenthal open up the coolest room in the house. They taught us that their wine of choice pairs well with everything from pizza to cake truffles, and if that doesn’t sell you, the ice cream selection in their freezer might. 

“We have a huge sweet tooth. We’re addicted to candy, especially gummy bears, which are really good to keep in the fridge because then you can use them as non-melting ice cubes.

We also have peanut butter, obviously. And Kit Kats.

Always have a roast chicken in the fridge. You can get a week of food out of it. Great for people who don’t cook. Just put it on top of arugula, maybe add a little tomato, avocado, parmesan cheese, and you’re good to go.

Mike’s Hot Honey is amazing. It’s a little spicy and is really good on pizza crust, but what we really use it for is an epic cheese plate.

We can’t fit all of our rosé in this fridge, but this is a good group. Duzsi Tamas is Hungarian, it’s imported by a really awesome woman who we met at an event. She said that rosé is the most popular wine in Hungary.

The next bottle is Lorenza, it’s a California rosé. This model Michèle Ouellet and her mom Melinda Kearney make it. It’s a cool mother-daughter project

The next one is Wolffer — a New York staple. It’s local, and they made a twist-off cap for the first time! Twist-off caps are great for when you need easy access, like when you’re going to the beach.

Then we have a sparkling French number — Pascal Pibaleau ‘La Perlette’ Sparkling Rose, which we bought from Dandelion Wine in Greenpoint [Brooklyn] because the bottle was so pretty. We haven’t tried this Paumanok rosé yet, but it’s from the North Fork of Long Island. We love to try ones we’ve never heard of.

Finally, we have Summer Water — which is ours, and just the best thing ever. It really is like water. It’s available on Club W — an online, direct-to-consumer wine company. We partnered with them to make ours. It’s very crisp and flavorful, but not overwhelming. We like to think of it as ‘easy drinking.’

They begin to melt, and they make this really pretty, pink swirly drink. Or, put them in your rosé to keep the wine cold, like coffee cubes with iced coffee.

Bagel Bites are freezer essentials.
