Rosé season officially starts with that first balmy day in May. Come mid-summer, if you're a fan of the pink wine, you've likely hit it a little too hard. Because when it's hot and you could be sipping a crisp, cool glass, when is it not rosé o'clock?
Let's be completely honest here — rosé fatigue exists. I know, I am as dumbfounded as you are, but come late July, that easy, breezy glass just might be a little tiresome if you've been enjoying it all too frequently for the first half of the season (guilty). The solution? A pitcher of rosé lemonade.
This is the drink that might just make the second half of your summer better than the first. Since lemonade is added to the wine, it's the kind of low-alcohol beverage you could sip through a summer afternoon. And it also couldn't be easier to make: Combine a bottle of rosé and store-bought lemonade in a pitcher and top with club soda. It practically doesn't even need a recipe, but I'll give you one anyway. Have you invited your friends over yet?
Makes 8 servings
(750-milliliter) bottle dry rosé wine
medium lemon, sliced
(12-ounce) can club soda
Combine the rosé, lemonade, and lemon slices in a large pitcher filled with ice. Top with club soda.
