There are those of us that enjoy a trend as it passes, and then there are die hard fans. Here at The Shoe Diet, rosé has been our drink of choice since our beginning of time, including the beginning of the day. And if you're drinking wine all day, it's important to know a spritzer version of it. In the beer world its called a session beer, low in alcohol and full of flavor. At my house (read wherever my ass is anchored on a Sunday) it's called Rosé All Day.
Things you need
- Rosé, I recommend Scharffenberger, which is a dry sparkling - a perfect backdrop to add fruit too.
- Cocchi Rosa, a beautiful wine aperitif made of two wine varieties.
- Topo Chico
- Grapes, I picked the sugary Cotton Candy grapes, because I'm an adult and can do whatever I wanna
Gather your ingredients, hopefully without pouring rosé for yourself, scratch that, pour yourself a glass. You deserve it.
Next, slice your nectarine in thin slices. They'll add a tartness to the flavor profile as well as a beautiful gradient pink floating garnish.
Next, pick off 2-3 grapes per spritzer. The green color adds some verity to all the pink hues.
Stack ice cubes until your glass is full. I like dense oversized cubes made from silicone trays for thermal regulation, plus they look bad ass.
Add your rose of choice, filling the glass about halfway. Go ahead and top off your glass of wine you've been sipping from while you're at it. Might as well start the day with a bang.
Add bubbly water as well as a splash of Cocchi.
Throw in your fruits.
Now marvel at your summer libation. Go ahead and start your long drinking session knowing that Monday morning will be a touch easier thanks to the hydrating qualities of our Rosé All Day recipe. Bottoms up!
