Did you know that National Rosé Day is in June?! On June 9th (2018) we get to celebrate a daily holiday that actually has some merit and what better way to celebrate than with one of my favorite things: a margarita! Give this Rosé margarita a try, the recipe makes two…but I’m not saying you have to share!
Here in Arizona it gets hot…that’s no secret…the secret is how I deal with the heat: with margaritas of course! This rosé margarita is blended with plenty of ice so it’s cool, refreshing, and has the kick we’re all looking for in a margarita. It’s the perfect drink to celebrate National Rosé Day or any other day for that matter!
National Rosé Day
National Rosé Day is June 9th. It was first introduced as a National Holiday in 2014 and it has been going strong ever since. It’s gathered quite the fun following in recent years and I thought it deserved to have a margarita all its own!
Rosé wine is make with red grapes despite it’s clear coloring. Rosé is what some consider to be the oldest type of wine with some varieties dating back as far as 600 BC…so I mean you can totally consider this drink recipe as historical research if you want :)
There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling with differences in sweetness and dryness so you can choose your favorite or let someone give you a great recommendation. My recipe doesn’t call for any one particular brand or type. If you prefer something a little more sparkling just make sure you get a more bubbly variety!
The best thing about this rosé margarita is that it compliments all of our favorite summer dishes so well. Rosé is very versatile and goes well with lots of different flavors and foods!
