3 Beautiful Rosé Cocktails for Summer

Yesterday we were reading about the French Rosé called Rock Angel from the Château d’Esclans winery. It is supposed to taste gorgeous, pair perfectly with a wide assortment of cheeses, and be the pink wine of the summer. It retails for $35.00 a bottle at high-end wine and spirits stores.

So here’s the question. Is it a sin to make wines like this into a cocktail? We do it all the time but there are many in the industry who wouldn’t dare. What’s your take?
