Frozen, on the rocks or with a twist, Rosé can be guzzled in a number of different ways! Enjoy National Rosé day with a few of our favorite recipes!
Contrary to popular belief, rosé isn’t made by mixing together red and white wine! Rosé is actually a type of wine that incorporates the skin of grapes, similarly to how red wine is made, but the grapes don’t sit long enough to give it the deep red. From blush to dark pink, rosé can be dry or sweet, depending on the region it’s from and the grapes that are used. Something rosé is also especially great for is drinking in the summer! Not only does the pink hue make it fun and flirty, but it’s refreshing and goes great with some BBQ! Plus, it’s super good in a cocktail! Check out below for some sweet rosé cocktails to celebrate National Rosé Day on June 10th!
