On Sunday, 5th February The Sisters Wine along with 60 of New Zealand’s finest Rosé wine producers will join together to celebrate the pink wine we have all come to love so well. We invite you to join us to celebrate #nzroseday If you want to know more about why the world had gone mad for pink, then check out our celebration of all things Rosé wine.
Of course usually, we just chill our pink, simply pouring it on its own as a refreshing aperitif, or as a partner for seafood, charcuterie, salads, fresh fruit. Rosé wine is perfect, enjoyed chilled from the fridge to your lips. But in case you get bored of your rosé, you can easily make cocktails with it. Here are five alternative ways to celebrate #nzroseday.
- 100ml The Sisters pinot rosé
- 20ml raspberry-flavoured vodka
- 40ml pink grapefruit juice
- Chilled white lemonade to top up
Pour the wine, vodka and juice into a tall tumbler half-filled with ice. Stir gently then top up with lemonade, adding as much or as little as you like. Garnish with a strawberry.
