In recent years, rosé has become increasingly popular.
This white wine has a beautiful pink hue that comes from very brief contact with red grapes.
While there’s nothing wrong with drinking rosé as is, there are several great cocktails you can make with this delicious wine!
Rosé cocktails are great any time of the year, especially in the spring and summer when the weather is nice.
You’re missing out if you’ve never had a rosé cocktail. Here are some of the best rosé cocktails.
Rosé Lemonade Cocktail
This rosé lemonade cocktail is perfect for summer. It's super simple to make and is one of the most refreshing rosé cocktails. You'll take whatever rosé you like, your favorite lemonade, and then a bit of club soda for carbonation. You can garnish it with a lemon slice if you're feeling fancy.
Who doesn't love a frozen cocktail when it's warm out? This raspberry frosé is absolutely stunning and delicious. You blend your favorite rosé, fresh raspberries, and peaches before pouring it into your glass of choice. The flavors are fresh and fruity, but be careful not to drink it too fast, or you'll get a brain freeze.
If you want a boozier rosé cocktail, then a pink 75 might be something you enjoy. The drink combines rosé, vodka, fresh lime juice, fresh strawberries, and guava syrup. You'll need to muddle the strawberries, but you can always garnish with a sliced strawberry at the end. It looks best in a champagne flute.
Instead of making a white or classic red sangria for your next party, you should try this rosé sangria. For the core ingredients, you'll use a bottle of rosé, oranges, strawberries, sugar, lemons, and mint leaves. The best part is that you can add brandy or Grand Marnier. Both are delicious.
You'll probably like this rosé take if you love ranch water. Ranch rosé is another crisp and refreshing cocktail you can try this spring or summer. You'll still use tequila as you would with ranch water, but you'll add rosé, blood orange syrup, and lime juice. Pour it over ice and savor this refreshing drink.
For those who want to try a rosé cocktail but aren't fans of overly sweet drinks, you need to try a Campari rosé. Unlike other rosé cocktails, you must use a dry rosé specifically. Besides that, you'll combine orgeat, Campari, and lime juice into a shaker before pouring it into your glass of ice.
Rosé spritzers are the perfect girls' night, brunch, or summer drink. They're arguably some of the easiest cocktails to make on our list. You only need three ingredients besides the ice. The club soda adds the perfect amount of carbonation, and the fresh strawberries make it look beautiful.
Elderflower Rosé Vodka Cocktail
When you can't get enough rosé flavor, you need a cocktail that combines rosé and rosé vodka. What really makes this cocktail stand out amongst the others is the elderflower liqueur. You can add as little or as much as you want before adding a dash of lemon juice. Be sure to use sparkling rosé for an even better flavor profile.
Pomegranate Rosé Paloma
This pomegranate rosé Paloma is the perfect rosé cocktail to serve the next time you host brunch. It's essentially a Paloma, but you'll swap out the tequila for a sparkling rosé and then use pomegranate juice instead of lime juice. You can serve it as is or garnish it with orange slices and mint leaves.
Lillet Tonic Ros� aperitif cocktail: aperitif wine idea I Lillet
Lillet tonic rosé is one of the easiest rosé cocktails to make, but it will definitely impress a crowd. It's so easy to make; anyone can make it. You'll use Lillet rosé, tonic water, and then you can garnish it with grapefruit slices, thyme, or a combination of both. Be sure to serve it with plenty of ice.
Rosé All Day
Rosé all day is a typical phrase restaurants and bars will use to serve rosé at discounted rates, but it's also a delicious cocktail you can try. This cocktail combines rosé, patron silver, orange liqueur, St. Germain, and several fresh fruits. It's fruit, sweet, and the perfect drink to sip on when you're day drinking.
Gin Campari Rosé Cocktail
For those who love the Campari rosé cocktail and also like gin, then you need to try the version with gin in it. The muddled strawberries make this drink a little more elegant than some of the other rosé cocktails. You'll make it like the standard Campari rosé cocktail and add your favorite gin.
Sparkling Grapefruit Rosé Cocktail
Grapefruit and rosé pair so well together, and this sparkling grapefruit rosé cocktail is proof of that. You'll need vodka, rosé, grapefruit juice (Fresh preferably), club soda, and simple syrup. It's best served with grapefruit wedges on the glass. Plus, you can squeeze some of the juice into your drink!
The Lone Ranger
A super simple rosé cocktail to make is the Lone Ranger. It combines sparkling rosé, tequila, simple syrup, and lemon juice. The best garnish is a lemon twist, but you can go without it. It's the perfect cocktail at a brunch to serve guests, cookout, or when you feel like having something to take the edge off.
A Summery Rosé Spritzer
Last but certainly not least, we have the sparkling rosé spritzer. Yes, we mentioned a rosé spritzer, but this one uses sparkling rosé instead of standard rosé. If you're going to make this, we recommend using a dry rosé so you can let the fresh fruit add the right amount of sweetness.
Next time you’re throwing a party, going to a restaurant, or just want to try out your bartending skills, these rosé cocktails need to be on your must-try list.
