The Black Rosé
So while a chilled glass of Rosé is perfect anytime and can easily stand on its own, why not kick it up a notch and use it in a cocktail?
- 1 pint of fresh blackberries, plus several extra for garnish
- 6 oz simple syrup
- 1 bottle dry rosé wine, chilled (we used Dark Horse Rosé)
- 9 oz vodka
- 5 oz freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 8-9 medium limes)
- Lime wheels for garnish
- Place the pint of blackberries and simple syrup in a large pitcher and muddle until the fruit is crushed and juicy. (If you don’t have a muddler, the fat end of a wooden spoon will do) Add the wine, vodka, and lime juice, and stir to combine. Place a fine mesh strainer over your serving pitcher, and strain the mixture in, discarding the solids. When ready to serve, pour mixture over cups filled with ice. Garnish with a blackberry and lime wheel.
