Mother Nature has spoken and the people have responded. Rosé season has officially begun. Remember that time it was 70 degrees in February? We thought 50 was exciting. The wait has commenced, the patios have opened, and the Rosé is flowing.
Since we will probably be laying out by the pool or driving to the Cape literally like next week, it’s time to spice up our normal Rosé routine. Don’t wanna be too basic. Check out these Wicked refreshing Rosé cocktail recipes.
