The Holidays Uncelebrated: National Rosé Day

“I’ll take rosé today over roses any day, thank you.”

Taysted was so inspired by National Rosé Day this past Saturday, that we enthusiastically began searching for rosé-inspired cocktails on Pinterest—fresh and fun. We came across a recipe title which immediately caught our eye: “Non-Famous Summer Sangria.” The recipe was found on blog.minibardelivery.com and features rosé, vodka, cherries, watermelon juice, peaches, and lime. We decided to forego the extra vodka and the added sugar, since everything else seemed sweet enough!

The photographs of this concoction, taken by Jordan Swartz, came out just delightful. They completely emanate the feel and taste of the fizzy, sippable treat which we enjoyed on the patio.
