The Rose Bouquet presented by Cocktail Detour


When we were challenged to use rosé wine in a cocktail we immediately started to search for a good recipe. It turns out there are actually lots of them and in the end we had a hard time picking only one. “The Rosé Bouquet” we chose for two reasons; it has grapefruit juice in it which we love, and we happened to have a bouquet of tulips at home making the prefect side garnish for this drink.⁣

There’s a certain dryness to rosé wine that makes it work pretty well as a cocktail ingredient. It’s almost like a dry vermouth, but with some nice pink colour. In this recipe it is also mixed with gin, so the ABV is taken up a bit. But as there’s also a large splash of grapefruit juice in the drink it’s still an easy sipper.⁣

What was left of that Enzo Bartoli rosé wine after the cocktails were done, accompanied our dinner. Rosé wine certainly equals spring to us!⁣

⁣As always, drink responsibly. Cheers!⁣
