For the past year I’ve been drinking all the rosé I can get my hands on.
I used to be one of those people who would change the color wine she drank with the seasons. That means that in the colder seasons, I’d drink red wine and in the warmer seasons, I’d drink white and sparkling. Well, I started loving and drinking rosé about a year ago and ever since, it’s pretty much all I’ve bought at Trader Joe’s each week.
I’ve tasted just about all of the rosés they have under $9.99 and I think I’ve found my favorite – this one (Le Pepin Grenache Rosé). Probably the best part about it is that it’s $4.99. Yes, $4.99! Trader Joe’s for the win!!!!
The sad part about all this? When I was grocery shopping at TJs this past weekend, they had it on display with the words “limited quantity” next to it.
I was crushed.
You can’t tell a mom whose toddler is currently on a nap strike and going through a tantrum stage that her new favorite wine is only available for a limited time.
You just can’t.
I was super tempted to just buy the whole stinking display and call it a day.
On top of buying rosé each week, we’ve also been buying flats of peaches and strawberries.
Enter this refreshing drink that I had the pleasure of “recipe testing” over and over again a couple of weeks back. I know, poor me, right? I had to recipe test a cocktail for y’all.
I’m not one who likes overly sweet cocktails and this one purposely calls for no added sugar or simple syrup. What you’ve got here is the sugars and juices from the fruit, the tartness of some lime, a bit of tequila and lovely rosé.
What more could you ask for?
STRAWBERRY PEACH ROSÉ MARGARITAS
Yields one drink, but can be easily multiplied
Salt for the rim of your glass (optional)
2 large strawberries, halved
1/4 peach, roughly chopped
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (from about one lime)
4 ounces rosé wine
1 ounce tequila
- If you’re salting your glass, do that now by placing some salt on a plate and rimming your glass with a small amount of lime or water and dip in the salt to coat.
- Place the strawberries and chopped peaches into your glass and muddle them well until you get most of the juice out of your fruit.
- Squeeze the lime juice into the glass and pop the remainder of your lime in your glass.
- Add the rose and tequila and mix well.
- Fill the glass with ice.
