14 Rosé Cocktails You'll Want to Sip on All Day Long

Since no drink is too over the top these days, mixologists and bartenders are testing out tons of new flavors, experimenting with everything from bitters to CBD oils. And if you love making your own concoctions at home, one great base to start with is wine. Joey Wölffer, co-owner of Wölffer Estate Winery and Vineyard in Sagaponack, NY, tells POPSUGAR that wine is an easy way to make a cocktail seem more complex. "Wine blends well with a variety of spirits and can play either a starring or supporting role in cocktails," she explains.

And one of the most versatile wines to use in cocktails is Rosé. Maggie Hoffman, author of Batch Cocktails: Make-Ahead Pitcher Drinks for Every Occasion and The One-Bottle Cocktail: More than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit, tells POPSUGAR: "I love the slightly rich, berry-laced flavor that Rosé can add to a cocktail, especially a pitcher drink, whether you're talking bubbly or still. These are the sorts of drinks you want to sip on the porch as the weather gets nicer."

Rosé can also have a more complex flavor profile than people think. Liz Martinez, sommelier and beverage director at Prime + Proper in Detroit, MI, says the flavor profiles lend themselves to blending nicely with almost any spirit, as well as accompaniments, such as charcuterie platters, cheese, and even full meals. "Its ability to transform and align with so many flavors is extra special," she says. But you don't have to head to a bar to have a fabulous wine cocktail. Keep reading for 14 Rosé cocktail recipes that you need to add to your beverage rotation this Summer.
