3 Rosé Wine Cocktails To Stun Your Summer

Summer and cocktails go together as well as summer and rosé, so what do you get if you combine all three? Summer rosé cocktails to turn every day in the garden into a party! We've picked out our favourite three cocktails that make the best of the rosé flavours, and get your summer sipping sizzling

 

 

Rosé Mojito

This is a secret favourite of mine. It feels like you’re making something uber stylish, but it’s really simple. It also packs layers of rosé, gin and mint flavours that makes it disappear way too fast.

What you’ll need

  • Mint leaves (a good sized bunch)
  • 35ml gin
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 50ml soda water
  • 50ml La Pierre du Diable Rosé
  • Mixed berries for decoration
  • Plenty of crushed ice

What to do

  1. Muddle your mint into the bottom of a tall glass (use a rolling pin if you’re short of a muddler).
  2. Add the gin, sugar syrup and lime juice, and mix.
  3. Add crushed ice to fill half the glass, and then add the rosé. Stir it up.
  4. Top up the glass with equal parts soda water and ice.
  5. Garnish with fresh mint and berries, and grab a straw.

 

 

Rosé French 75

This is an altogether classier affair, think early evening drinks, or a pre-dinner treat. It’s got plenty of zest, but is delicious fun!

What you’ll need

What to do

  1. Pour the gin, elderflower liqueur and lemon juice into a shaker (no ice needed) and mix it up.
  2. Pour into a cocktail glass (the coolest you can find) and fill about halfway.
  3. Top up the glass with Crémant (for every occasion) or Champagne (when you’re feeling fancy).
  4. Pop a lemon slice on the side for extra sexy points

 

 

Provence (Is) Cooler

Danger! This is one of those cocktails that taste just like chilled fruit juice, but absolutely packs a punch. It’s all about the perfect pale pink with this one, so prepare yourself for a relaxing day in the sun.

What you’ll need

  • 25ml vodka (the more premium the better)
  • 15ml fresh lemon juice
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 1 blackberry
  • 2 basil leaves
  • 75ml Mas de Cadenet Provence rosé

What to do

  1. Put the vodka, lemon juice and sugar syrup into your shaker.
  2. Throw in a blackberry and muddle it so its juice is mixed in.
  3. Add 2 basil leaves, ice and then give it a proper shake.
  4. Open up the shaker, add the Mas de Cadenet and then strain into a tall glass.
  5. Garnish with an extra basil leaf and blackberry, and prepare to drink quicker then you thought.
