There has been a long-standing division in the world of alcoholic beverages between wine and spirits. Except for sangria (a red-wine float on top of a New York Sour), or sparkling wine on, well…anything and everything, these two liquids rarely mix or are mixed together.

Rose is not just any wine. It’s a category phenomenon. IWSR Drinks Market Analysis predicts that pink wine will grow by nearly 70% between 2020 and 2024. All this talk about popularity contests can be summed up as a simple truth: Rose is easy. It’s not to say that it’s boring, but rose is a great alternative to wine-insecurity and people. This is a good example: There are many cocktails that use the vinous ingredient in shaken, frozen, or stirred concoctions. These are some of our favorite current cocktails:

Fruity Frozen Rose

(Special Equipment: 6 liter frozen slushie machine)

Perfect Puree’s fresh texture and fruity flavors, combined with the bright pink, make this entry in the frose category by Kiersten Firkain, chef/owner at Legit Provisions, Napa, CA, a summer success.

  • 30 oz. The Perfect Puree Blood Orange Concentrate
  • 30 oz. Mango Concentrate, thawed
  • Rose wine
  • Water

In a slushie maker, combine blood orange concentrate and mango concentrate. Top with equal quantities of rose wine and water. Choose ice cream mode, and then serve the mixture using the slushy maker.

Balsamic Cooler

Jillian Vose created a series cocktails for Carandini. This refreshing, sweet-tart, nonalcoholic option with alcohol-free rose was a hit.

  • 3 oz chilled Hibiscus tea
  • .75 oz Earl Gray tea syrup
  • Carandini Emilio (Balsamic Vinegar Modena PGI),.5 Oz
  • Sparkling Rose Wines that are Non-Alcoholic, such as Tost
  • Grapefruit peel

Mix the drink in a medium-sized wine glass with cracked ice. Top it off with sparkling rose wine. Give a light stir. Use grapefruit oils to garnish.

Earl Gray Tea Syrup

This makes about 1 liter.

  • 500ml Earl Gray tea, strong brewed
  • 1000g cane sugar

In a saucepan, combine sugar and tea. Stir frequently while bringing mixture to boil. Take the mixture off heat and let cool in an airtight container for at least 1 hour. Recrystallization can occur if the temperature drops too fast or unevenly. Cool down and store in a refrigerator.
