Coming Up: Roses

So, sun’s out. And that means one thing. Well, two things. The first involves half a tube of St. Tropez Medium Dark Body Lotion. The second is rosé. Perfectly chilled, condensation on glass rosé. I mean, I know by the end of the summer I’ll be over it. But it’ll be temporary. Because when the sun’s out, rosé is the answer. This week’s wine recommendations include a couple for the ice bucket. Different styles, different prices. Both delicious. Go.

  1. Any suggestions for rose cocktails?

      Yes! I do…recipe pinched from a winemaker friend, Gavin Quinney at Chateau Bauduc in Bordeaux. This makes up enough for 8 so just take quantities down if needed:

      Pour a bottle of rose into a jug with 50ml vodka, 25cl cranberry juice, juice of half a lime, a dash of lime cordial if you have any and chill in the fridge for half an hour. When ready to serve, add a handful of ice to tall glasses and pour in to half full. Top up with ginger ale and add a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime, squeezing it before you pop it into the glass. Voila! x
