Spring Means Rosé, Here’s All You Need To Know

With spring in the air, Rosé reigns supreme.

 

1. Rosés are made all over the world. Dry vs. Sweet, which flavor comes from where?

*Dry = fresh, acidic

Europe means it will most likely be more dry

All other origins outside of Europe means it will most likely be less dry


2. Can’t decide? Go French! (Or Spanish rosados)

There are official names that convey where a wine has been made.

For southern France (Provence):

Côtes de Provence
Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence
Bandol
Cassis
Coteaux Varois


3. Rosé is perfect for making cocktails. There are several Rosé cocktail recipes available online. To make things easier, here are a couple that are simple to make at home!

 

Rosé Margarita

1 cup simple syrup

1 cup lime juice

1 cup tequila

1 bottle rosé

1 lime, sliced into wedges

Serves 6.

 

In a pitcher, add 1 cup simple syrup, 1 cup lime juice, 1 cup tequila, and 1 bottle rosé. Add ice and stir well.

 

Black Rosé

1 pint fresh blackberries, plus 12 extra berries for garnish

5 ounces Simple Syrup, chilled

1 (750-milliliter) bottle dry rosé wine, chilled

9 ounces vodka, chilled

6 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 9 medium limes), chilled

Ice

12 thinly sliced lime wheels, for garnish

Serves 12.

 

Place the pint of blackberries and simple syrup in a large pitcher and muddle until the fruit is crushed and juicy but not completely pulverized, about 1 minute. Add the wine, vodka, and lime juice and stir to combine.

Place a fine-mesh strainer over a punch bowl and strain the mixture into the bowl, discarding the solids. Place a large block of ice in the punch and serve in wineglasses filled with ice. Garnish each drink with a blackberry and a lime wheel.
