Updated: Feb 17
The rosé all day hashtag exists for a reason. If you’re in for a refreshing good time, here are 5 cocktail recipes you can whip up in seconds with our Volcanic Hills Rosé.
This New Zealand drop embodies the vibrancy and verve of beach sunrises. It’s coral pink beauty is wrapped in scents of fresh black currant jam and raspberry zinger tea. Sunshine, berries, and hints of delicate strawberry smooth perfectly together for a bright and fresh summer experience in a glass.
Spicy Watermelon Rosé Sangria
The holidays just ended, it’s time to enjoy lighter drinks to smooth over everything we ate throughout the festive season. This delicious rosé sangria has a unique twist: watermelon juice and a little chilly kick. Puree cubed watermelon in a blender and strain to extract watermelon juice. Fill the bottom of a pitcher with sliced strawberries and watermelon balls before pouring rosé wine, watermelon juice, brandy, grand marnier and club soda. This tasty concoction is best served on a glass rimmed with a mix of sugar and chili powder. It’s slightly spicy, sweet from the juice, boozy from the wine and crisp from the soda. It will be gone in no time so we suggest making a double batch!
Frosé All Day
Bring an all-day frosé party to your home with this deliciously refreshing and simple recipe. The smooth and crisp taste of rosé is combined with the slight sweetness of simple sugar syrup and citrus notes from lemon juice for an easy-to-make drink that can also be stored in the freezer. Mix sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat to make a simple syrup. Throw in ice, rosé, lemon juice and the syrup you just made in a blender to create this light and refreshing summer inspired slush. Garnish with lemon peel or strawberry and indulge.
Rosé, Gin & Pink Peppercorn Pitcher Cocktail
The Rosé, Gin & Pink Peppercorn Cocktail looks just as pretty as it tastes and is a sure conversation starter! Drawing from flavours such as cranberry, rosé, and peppercorn, this cocktail is the ideal pink drink for anyone who doesn't want to be predictable. It's light yet bold, aromatic yet complex. A real treat. In a pitcher or a bowl, mix jin, white grape juice, cranberry liqueur, pink peppercorn syrup and 24 ounces of rosé wine. The red fruit notes from Volcanic Hills rosé are a perfect match with the tart cranberry, peppery syrup, and the crisp tonic water. A little sweet from the sugar and juice, it’s balanced by bitterness from the peppercorns and keeps you refreshed with each drink.
Sometimes, you want a drink that’s just a little bit more complex than a gin and tonic. Auriela Nossa, a New York bartender, crafted an easy-drinking rosé cooler that invites sipping on a hot sunny afternoon. Its herbal notes come from fresh basil, while sweet blackberries and bright lemon add an excellent balance. Blackberries are muddled directly in the vodka, lemon and sugar mixture to infuse sweet and tart flavours. Finish the cooler off with a healthy pour of rosé to add oomph and character. Best enjoyed after a day out in the sun.
Cherry Sorbet & Rosé Wine Spritzers
Kickstart the year bright and festive with this fruity cherry pink refresher. Tart and sweet from the homemade cherry sorbet, a dazzle of booze and bubbly soda will transport you straight to ocean waves and pretty sunsets. Making the sorbet is simple enough - just combine cherries, sugar, lemon juice and some salt for balance in a saucepan over medium heat. Once cool, mix it with Chambord on a food processor and puree. Strain to get rid of residual chunks. Leave it in the freezer or churn in your ice cream maker if you have any. Top each scoop with rosé and a splash of sparkling water for the perfect boozy dessert treat!
