ROSÉ’S RISE TO FAME
Nothing says summer quite like a cold, perspiring glass of light strawberry-coloured rosé. It’s the delicious drink that punctuates those sunny calendar months with it’s photogenic aesthetic and distinctly refreshing taste.
Rosé is enjoyed by people the world over as they dine alfresco with their nearest and dearest, as they picnic on a grassy knoll with the sun setting over the horizon, or as they sip leisurely from their glass from the comfort of a beachfront resort.
To think that this universally recognised wine varietal began in ancient Greece as a simple under-macerated wine, only to transform into the global phenomenon it is today with the ever popular slogan “rosé all day” – it’s nothing short of remarkable. And dare we say, well deserved.
A VERSATILE PINK WINE
With its meteoric rise to the status quo of the go-to summer drink, rosé has also found its place amoung an innumerable list of cocktail recipes and alcoholic beverages eager to borrow from the off-red wine’s versatile flavor.
Depending on which variety you choose, a rosé’s flavor can range from the bright, syrup-like sweetness of a Pink Moscato to the crisp, dry character of a Grenache. The wide spectrum of flavour profiles has thus given way to a number of fresh and fruity drink combinations.
Rosé sangria, rosé spritzer, lychee rosé mimosa, bubbly strawberry rosé mojitos and the crowd favorite, Frozé are but a few of the pink wine iterations that have found their way onto the drink menus of bars and restaurants, both at home and abroad.
