Saturday Sips: Four Ways to Rosé

Summer is in the air - can you feel it? Time to break out the rosé. Tonight we're looking at four ways to enjoy this warm-weather wine.

SATURDAY SIPS - Four Ways to Enjoy Rose

1. Drink it straight.

I have a serious confession to make: I had NEVER had a rosé until recently. I think my fear of rosé stemmed from my dad drinking white zinfandel with crushed ice when I was growing up - which is pretty much a smoothie (don't worry - he's moved on to "real" wine- ha!). Luckily, I am a convert! Rosé is a delicious and pretty addition to my fridge and perfect for warm-weather drinking. I've been trying out this 2014 SIMI Sonoma County Dry Rosé which has hints of berries and citrus without being too sweet. It pairs perfectly with one of my favorite weeknight appetizers - goat cheese and these Trader Joes crackers that I am obsessed with. SIMI also recommends trying this rosé with grilled salmon or a roasted pork loin.

2. Make a rosé cocktail.

Rose Sangria

If you're looking for a way to spice up your next bottle of rosé, try this rosé sangria that combines the wine with brandy, raspberry liquor, fresh fruit and seltzer for a boozy picnic-ready pitcher.

4. Make a boozy dessert.

Rose dessert

Looking for an easy summer dessert? Combine fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries with a little sugar and half a cup of rosé wine. Gently stir and let the mixture sit to let the flavors blend (psst - this is called macerating). Add in some chopped mint and spoon on top of vanilla ice cream, lemon sorbet or a shortcake. Or try the berries on this rosé gelée that combines wine, gelatin and sugar for a grown-up DIY jello.

Cheers to the weekend!
