    4. Black Rosé


    1 pint fresh blackberries, plus 12 extra berries for garnish
    5 ounces Simple Syrup (see Game Plan note), chilled
    1 (750-milliliter) bottle dry rosé wine, chilled
    9 ounces vodka, chilled
    6 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 9 medium limes), chilled
    12 thinly sliced lime wheels, for garnish

    Place the pint of blackberries and simple syrup in a large pitcher and muddle until the fruit is crushed and juicy but not completely pulverized, about 1 minute. Add the wine, vodka, and lime juice and stir to combine.
    Place a fine-mesh strainer over a punch bowl and strain the mixture into the bowl, discarding the solids. Place a large block of ice in the punch and serve in wineglasses filled with ice. Garnish each drink with a blackberry and a lime wheel.

    100ml rich fruity rosé
    20ml raspberry-flavoured vodka
    40ml pink grapefruit juice
    Chilled cherryade to top up
    Maraschino cherry to garnish (optional)

    Pour the wine, vodka and juice into a tall tumbler half-filled with ice. Stir gently then top up with cherryade, adding as much or as little as you like (bearing in mind the cherryade is sweet). Garnish with the maraschino cherry.

    6. Rosé Slushie


    1 bottle of rosè
    3oz Aperol
    2oz Simple Syrup
    2oz Lemon Juice
    4oz Water
    Splash of Bugey-Cerdon
    Rosè (or other dry, sparkling rosé)

    Combine all of the ingredients together in a freezer-safe container. To achieve proper “slushy” consistency, we advise using an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer directions. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, freeze the ingredients in ice cube trays. Once frozen, put in blender and mix until you receive your desired consistency. Top with a floater of rosèand garnish with a lemon peel. Serve with a spoon.

    7. The Mosé (A Margarita-Rosé Cocktail)


    2 strawberries, hulled, sliced
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 ounces tequila blanco
    1 ounce fresh lemon juice
    3/4 ounce dry rosé

    Muddle strawberries and sugar in a cocktail shaker until lightly crushed. Add tequila, lemon juice, rosé, and a single large ice cube. Cover and shake until outside of the shaker is frosty, about 30 seconds. Pour drink with ice cube into a rocks glass (do not strain).

    Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 4.45.52 PM

    100ml pale, delicate rosé, in the Provencal style, very cold
    10-30ml rosewater, to taste
    Dash of lime juice
    Rose petal to garnish (from an unsprayed rose)

    Chill a small wine glass in the fridge for at least an hour. Simply pour the wine and lime juice into the glass, adding the rosewater gradually until you have the right strength for you, then serve straight away, with a rose petal floating on top. The glass should be frosty.
