As much as I love fancy cocktails, if I’m being honest then I have to say, making them is the worst. There’s too much measuring and too many special ingredients that I would never buy, I happily leave that skill to the mixologist at my favorite bar. So, when I am at home entertaining with friends, I like to keep it simple and easy. That is why I love this cocktail recipe, it’s uncomplicated, yet still elegant and delicious. My Sparkling Rosé punch is the perfect drink to enjoy all summer long.
During the hot summer months, a cold glass of Rosé always seems to hit the spot. The only thing that can top it, is to combine it with some sparkling wine, Yes! This bright and fruit forward cocktail is the perfect drink to sip the summer away. So grab your wine, strawberries, lime, basil and your favorite pitcher, and I’ll drink to that! Cheers!
