Beautiful scenery, stylish summer suits, free-flowing champagne and plenty of polo – there’s so much to love about the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.

The glamorous sporting event, which returns to New Jersey’s Liberty State Park on Saturday, June 4th, is set just across the river from Manhattan and offers Instagram-worthy views of the Statue of Liberty and the lower city skyline. Always a star-studded affair, the polo classic has attracted celebrities like Matthew McConaughey, Mindy Kaling, Lupita Nyong’o and Hugh Jackman.

“My favorite ingredients to add [to champagne] are grapefruit and pineapple, but other top faves are jalapeño and tea,” says Grinshpan, who suggests serving with ice.
