Want a fun drink to seriously impress friends this #NationalRoséDay? Here are a few cocktails that are perfect to make your weekend plans that much more enjoyable.
• ¼ cup Organika Vodka
• 1 (750 ml.) bottle of rosé
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 10 ounces fresh raspberries
• 2 tbs orange liqueur
• 1 tablespoon pomegranate grenadine
Pour the rosé wine into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, about 8 hours or overnight.
Combine the berries and the sugar in a blender. Let them macerate on the counter for approximately 10 minutes, or until the berries begin to release their juices.
Add the vodka, orange liqueur, grenadine, and rosé cubes. Blend the mixture on high until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish with berries, if desired.
South Beach Granita
This twist on an adult granita will cool you off in a big way, no swimming pool required.
• 8 oz simple syrup (2 parts water, 1 part sugar)
• .5 oz fresh lime juice
• .5 oz fresh orange juice
• .5 oz strawberry liqueur
• 1 bottle Tussock Jumper Moscato Rosé
• Orange or strawberry slices for garnish
Add the cooled simple syrup, citrus juices, and liqueur to a bowl. Stir in Tussock Jumper Moscato Rosé, then pour into a freezer-safe, non-metallic tray. Freeze until a thick layer of crystals have formed (2 hrs), and scrape the bottom and sides of the pan with a fork to break up the ice crystals. Continue to freeze for 8 to 10 hours, until the consistency is firm.
Scrape again, and scoop into small glasses. Garnish and serve immediately. Serves 5.
Next, be the bartender with our ‘Garden Party’ cocktail. The egg white makes it creamy, while the citrus adds tart notes to a candy-like rosé syrup.
• 1.5 oz Tussock Jumper Wines Grenache Rosé
• 1 .5 oz vodka
• 2 oz grapefruit juice
• .5 oz lemon juice
• .5 oz rose syrup
• 1 pasteurized egg white
• grapefruit soda, to fill
• dried rose petals to garnish
Add vodka, rosé, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, rose syrup, and egg white into shaker; dry shake for 30 seconds, then add ice.
Shake for a few seconds, and strain into Collins glass filled with ice. Top with grapefruit soda, then garnish with dried flower petals.
