With summer upon us, we're looking forward to weeks spent basking in the sun and sipping on ice cold rosé. In this blog post, we'll share with you just how that side of things can be taken care of easily by making some great rosé cocktails and pairing them with food.
What is Rosé?
Rosé wine is a pink or rosy wine that is made from a blend of different colours of wine. Rosé wines are typically made from a blend of two types of wine: red and white. Red wines are used to make the main part of the wine, and then the white wines are used to add colour.
History of Rosé
Rosé wine has a long and colourful history. Originating in the south of France, rosé wines have been made since the 12th century. Early versions of the wine were made using blood, which gave the wine a reddish hue. Today’s versions are typically made with white grapes and are slightly sweet with a tart taste. Rosé wines are often served as an accompaniment to food or enjoyed on their own.
Pairings with Rosé
Rosé is the perfect wine for summertime dinners. Not only does it go great with light dishes like salads and chicken wraps, but rosé also pairs well with heavier fare like pizza and burgers. Here are some pairing ideas to help you get started:
Rosé is a delicious wine that can be enjoyed at any time of year.
