Strawberry Lemonade Rosé

February is cominnnnng, y’all, which means ALL the rosé recipes. But let’s be clear about one thing— this doesn’t mean February is the only month for it. We are firm believers that *all* months are fair game for some rosé, amen?! Which is why we’re bringing you our Strawberry Lemonade Rosé featuring our Rue de Pearl Rosé. This one is sure to be a crowd favorite!

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Rue de Pearl Rosé
-Pink Lemonade
-Strawberry slices for garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a glass with ice, pour your pink lemonade until about half full. Top with Rue de Pearl Rosé and garnish with fresh strawberry slices. Serve and enjoy!

Wham bam — it really is as easy as that! This recipe is perfect for the ladies (and gents) who aren’t all about a dry rosé, but don’t want their wine too sweet, either. The added lemonade and strawberry slices gives it just enough flavor without making it tase *too* sweet and still maintaining the bold flavors of the rosé.

Sauv Sangria

Hey, friends! Fall is in full swing over here and we’re still as excited as we were last week when we shared our Spiked Cider! This week, though, it’s all about our red wine lovers. There’s something about a full-bodied red wine that screams fall, right!? That’s why we’re excited to bring you our Sauv Sangria featuring our Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-1 12 oz bottle Ale 8
-1 Orange (we used blood orange)
-1 lemon

And here’s how you make it:
In a pitcher, add orange and lemon slices. Pour Cabernet until about 3/4 of the way full. Top with Ale 8. Refrigerate over night. (A few hours will work, too, but giving it a full night to really infuse those fruit flavors is best for taste!). Serve chilled.

This sangria is the PERFECT blend for the red-wine lover as well as the trying-to-become-a -red-wine-lover. The fruit helps with some of the normal dryness of the Cab, while still being subltle enough to not take away from the bold flavors the cabernet has to offer. This one is so easy to double or triple batch, too, to serve at a fall party or even on Halloween! YES PLEASE!
