Watch These Tap Dancers Pay An Unforgettable Tribute to Prince

It's hard to believe that it has already been a month since the world lost one its most iconic musicians. For decades, Prince and his music have touched the hearts of fans near and far. Beyoncé, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, and Little Big Town are just a few of many A-listers who've gone out of their way to pay homage to The Purple One at their concerts and through social media—though nothing quite tops this spectacular tribute by a small but mighty L.A. based tap dancing group, The Syncopated Ladies.

If you're less about the pink and more about the Pinot, try Barefoot Refresh Spritzers instead. The easy-travel cans come in Crisp White and Summer Red and have six and half percent ABV—making them great to sip solo, poured over ice, or as a mixer for a sparkling cocktail. P.S. If you dont need the convenience of a can (or just want a whole bunch of spritzer to yourself), they're also available in full-size bottles. (Or go the DIY route and make your own summer spritzer.)
