A nicely chilled glass of rosé wine is a quintessential summer experience, but this wine also makes an excellent cocktail ingredient that adds light and effervescence to a wide variety of craft cocktails. The following are just 3 of the many delicious libations that residents of our apartments in Dallas, TX, can create using rosé wine as one of the main ingredients.
Classic Rosé Wine Cocktail
This is a quick and easy classic that's ideal for sipping on the balcony on a warm summer evening. Simply add a splash or two of gin to a glass of chilled rosé, along with a drop or two of honey and a few ice cubes. This provides an ideal start to an elegant alfresco dinner party, but it also works well whenever the occasion calls for something light and delicious.
Standard mimosas have long been the go-to cocktail for leisurely summer brunches, but sparkling rosé mimosas take it up a notch, especially if you substitute blood orange juice for regular orange juice. You can add a final layer of goodness to the cocktail by squeezing in a bit of fresh Meyer lemon juice and garnishing with a couple ripe blackberries or raspberries. You don't have to limit your enjoyment of these to brunch, however—they're an excellent choice anytime you feel like having a cold, refreshing, adult beverage with a seriously citrus presence.
For a quintessential taste of summer, combine rosé wine in a tall, iced glass with a couple good splashes of peach vodka, and garnish with a sprig of freshly picked spearmint. For a peaches-and-cream effect, add a small amount of half-and-half on top of the cocktail. Garnish with a maraschino cherry, and drizzle a bit of grenadine on the top of the drink for a sunrise effect.
