13 Rosé Recipes You Need to Make This Summer
We went crazy over the idea of rosé jelly when it hit the internet, so here is our version of this boozy blush pink jelly. Your morning won’t be the same, now that you can have rosé for breakfast, as a midday snack, and basically anytime of the day you want. It’s the ultimate adult condiment. The recipe yields a few jars of jelly that you can keep for yourself stocked away or hand them out to family and friends as gifts. If you prefer red or white over rosé, you can substitute your favorite bottle of choice.
Rosé-Glazed Strawberry Tart
The rectangular tart pan makes for a striking presentation, but if you don't have one, you can use a 9-inch tart pan or pie plate.
Rosé Butter Sauce
This buttery wine sauce gets its rosey hue from rosé wine, pink shallot, and pink peppercorns. The rich sauce is a perfect finishing touch on steak, chicken, or pork, and delivers a whimiscal pop of color to the plate.
Strawberries and Rosé Cake
This impressive blush-tone cake is inspired by two of our favorite summer treats: rosé wine and fresh strawberries. Perfect for a bridal shower, birthday party, or any number of other special gatherings, this cake is as spirited as it is elegant. If you are a big frosting fan, you may want to consider doubling the buttercream component of the recipe, as this was developed as a more delicately iced cake. Leave enough frosting after filling the layers to swipe a light crumb coat around the exterior of the cake, if you like that look--or you can simply keep the frosting in between the layers for a fully "naked" cake aethetic.
Raspberry Rosé Bellini
This simple and elegant spring cocktail is the perfect accompaniment to a special brunch spread, such as our Ultimate Eggs Benedict. Though the recipe was developed with Mother’s Day in mind, the rosé simple syrup used to create this cocktail offers a multitude of delicious possibilities any day of the week. The boozy syrup is incredibly simple to make and can be used to enhance the simplest of cocktails, as well as add an extra special touch when poured over desserts.
Sparkling Ice Cream Floats with Berries
Who knew the ultimate summer dessert would be the simplest you’ve ever made? These delightfully sweet and boozy floats take only a few ingredients and about two seconds to whip up, but trust us—they are always sure to impress. Rossini is a sparkling wine beverage, usually Prosecco-based, that is mixed with strawberries and raspberries. It is sweeter and fruitier than a rosé or other sparkling wine so it makes a delicious combination with rich vanilla ice cream (we especially love Häagen-Dazs brand here). We found a great one at Trader Joe’s for just about $6, but if you have a hard time finding rossini, you can definitely use your favorite rosé.
Fresh strawberries briefly and gently poach in vanilla- and thyme-scented rosé wine for a versatile spring condiment: Serve it for dessert over ice cream, angel food cake, or pound cake; or use it at breakfast to top your yogurt or oatmeal. You can also try this technique with raspberries or blackberries if they’re more plentiful at the farmers market. If your rosé is on the sweet side, start with 1 tablespoon of honey, and add more as needed.
Elderflower and Raspberry Rosé Slushie
This simple slushie whips together in under ten minutes, making it the perfect cocktail to accompany your afternoon. Smooth, floral, and refreshing, this crisp glass gets its signature flavor from rosé and elderflower liqueur. Raspberries add tangy and sweet notes to round out the flavor of this elegant cocktail, making it the perfect refresher to include in your next afternoon get-together. For added elegance, serve alongside some beautiful Elderflower Macaroons.
