“Rosé all day” has become a trendy saying among the #youth of today. It rhymes, brands are adorning their clothing with it, and it provides an excuse to lounge around all day sipping on a cool glass of pink wine. But don’t settle for this saying to remain just a saying. Transform it into a practice. These drink recipes will guide your weekend from brunch to post-dessert cocktails, ensuring you keep your word and live out rosé all day to its fullest potential.
Rosé all day begins the moment you wake up. No need to change out of your pajamas, just head to the kitchen and grab a bottle of rosé from the fridge as you take out the butter and milk for your weekend pancakes. It may seem a little early to uncork a bottle of wine, but adding a dash of rosé to this berry compote recipe makes the perfect topping for pancakes, waffles, French toast, or granola and yogurt parfaits.
If you’re feeling inspired by the origins of the rosé and want to embrace the French lifestyle, try this spiked strawberry jam recipe to complement some toast or croissants. No breakfast is complete without a mimosa, as it would just be irresponsible to skip your healthy serving of vitamin C with your glass of orange juice. Instead of using champagne, try swapping in sparkling rosé wine.
As a leisurely breakfast rolls into lunchtime, Rosé All Day only picks up steam. Make a pitcher of rosé sangria, using fresh, in-season fruits such as peaches, raspberries and apples. While the sangria is chilling in the fridge, allowing the flavors to deepen and come together in harmony, turn to the stove to steam a fresh bowl of mussels.
Whether you’re hosting a big dinner party or having a more intimate dinner, rosé will still find its place on the menu. As a personal fan of seafood, oysters are one of my weaknesses. Continuing with the shellfish theme from lunch, start the evening with oysters on the half-shell with a hand-made rosé mignonette. This light mignonette is the perfect appetizer for a warm summer night.
The main course can switch from the sea to the land, with this delicious chicken recipe of rosé and bacon. Juicy chicken is browned in a loving bath of rosé, and it’s a simple recipe that produces impressive results. Pair your dinner with either a simple glass of rosé, or if you’re in the mood for a cocktail, this gin rose spritzer is a great option for a fun summer drink.
As the sun goes down, your sweet tooth comes out. Satisfy your sweet cravings with the essential course of dessert. If you’re feeling like cooling down, these rosé popsicles are the perfect solution, and are sommelier crafted and approved.
For a more substantial dessert, these delicate toasted almond soufflés with poached pears and prunes are a great option and make a grand presentation. If you have some extra poached fruit, you can save the leftovers and carry your rosé all day into the next morning, adorning some greek yogurt with this boozy fruit mixture.
Rosé All Day is not just a fun saying, but a mantra for your weekend. Granted, it might not be the best idea to make rosé all day your daily motto, it is definitely a great way to embrace the weekend, and enjoy a relaxing day in the company of great food, great friends, and great drinks.
