- On August 8, 2017
We’re celebrating the heat of the summer with Frosé Day this Saturday August 12th, 2017 from 11 AM – 8 PM. There’s no better way to relax on a hot summer day than with a Frosé (frozen Rosé) on our beautiful deck overlooking the St. Croix River.
Rosés and rosé mixed drinks are cold, crisp, and fruity, making them the perfect summer beverage. Our Main Street Rosé is perfect for mixing because it is dry, so you can make your mixed drink as dry or as sweet as you want. If you want the recipe for our Frosés, you’ll have to stop in on Saturday and beg Dennis to share his secret recipe. But here are the recipes for some of our other favorite rosé mixed drinks. We have chosen recipes that don’t include other hard alcohols or liqueurs so that the flavor and character of our rosé is showcased. We’ve also chosen recipes without uncommon, or hard-to-find ingredients. So get your shakers and pitchers out and enjoy!
The Black Rose
1 pint fresh blackberries, plus 12 extra berries for garnish
5 ounces simple syrup, chilled
1 bottle dry rosé wine, chilled
9 ounces soda water, chilled
6 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 9 medium limes)
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, chilled soda water, 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 wine glasses filled with ice. Garnish each drink with a blackberry and a lime wheel.
4 bottles Dry Rosé Wine, Chilled
8 whole Peaches, Pitted And Diced
2 cups Raspberries
1 cup Strawberries, Hulled And Quartered
2-3 cans Sanpellegrino Limonata, Chilled
Fresh Mint, For Garnish (optional)
Combine the Rosé wine, peaches, raspberries, and strawberries in a large container or pitcher. Cover and refrigerate for 8-12 hours. Just before serving, pour in chilled Sanpellegrino and stir. Serve in glasses with some of the fruit and garnish with fresh mint.
5 ounces rosé
Fresh strawberries, chunked
Fresh mint leaves
2 – 3 lemon slices
Sparkling water or club soda
Place 1 – 2 tablespoons of fresh strawberries and 2 – 3 lemon slices in the bottom of an old fashioned glass. Muddle well until juicy. Fill glass with ice to the top. Add rosé, then top with sparkling water or club soda. Garnish with fresh mint and lemon.
