Tequila Rosé Spritz.
Now this is theeeee cocktail that you need for the fourth of July!
A rosé spritz cocktail; a refreshing and light dreamy drink that tastes like heaven.
And so easy to drink. So wonderful to drink!
My mind is seriously blown that the launch party for The Pretty Dish was over three months ago. Three months! It was two seasons ago since we were technically still in winter and there was even a blizzard that night.
The book tour this time around has been a (super fun) whirlwind, one that I will probably never forget and one that I need a huge vacation from after taking both kids, even though to you guys it probably seems like the entire thing was one giant vacation! It kind of was because it was so fun. I love getting to explore new places but I also love going back to places that I’ve already been. And I secretly love hotel rooms and just want to stay in a hotel bed for HOURS.
But! After these amazing three months, I want nothing more than to spend some time on our patio and grill and drink even more rosé than you’d normally expect I would drink.
Can’t help it. I love it.
And the thing is – I know that rosé is trendy. But it’s just SO GOOD. If you fall into the camp of not adoring red wine and you really enjoy white wine but sometimes want a change? Then you probably love rosé too!
I swore that last week I was taking a break from rosé cocktails, but then I just HAD to share this. And I have one more to share for you in another week or two. Gah! Yes – I love to drink it but I really love having it on hand to use in other cocktails or trying a new fun beverage.
And when you really only get the chance to have a cocktail on the weekend, trying something new means new things allll summer long.
Floor 2’s version of their cocktail is called Rosé All Day and it could not be more perfect. Admittedly I’m jealous that I didn’t think of that name… I mean, it’s perfect for these hot summer days!
And the ingredients. The ingredients in this glass are everything.
Muddled strawberries, tequila and rosé all in one glass. Um, it’s no secret that those are three of my favorite things. And together?
Yes yes yes.
Since it’s going to be HOT hot hot here this weekend, this is all I can think about. Sometimes a chilled glass of rosé on its own won’t cut it and when that happens, it’s time to break out the tequila. These glasses are also rimmed with a touch of salt and spritzed with lemon juice. Doesn’t that sound incredible?!
It’s ridiculously refreshing. It’s kind of like rosé spritzer meets margarita and sangria. Not that there is any other fruit in it – just the muddled strawberries. HOWEVER. I went and threw in some frozen peaches! You know that’s my favorite way of keeping a drink cold and, well… then you can eat them.
Rosé for dinner? I’m in!
- crushed Himalayan pink salt for the rum
- 3 strawberries chopped
- 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 1 ounce silver tequila
- 4 ounces rosé wine
- fresh strawberries for garnish
- frozen peach slices for garnish
Rim your glass with a slice of lemon and dip it in the coarse salt.
In the bottom of the glass, muddle the strawberries, lemon juice and honey until the strawberries are completely crushed. Add a bit of crushed ice. Pour in the tequila and muddle a bit more. Top with the rosé, add in the strawberries and frozen peach slices and serve!
So yes way we can definitely drink these all day. SORRY.
