Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day more than delicious rosé inspired recipes using your favorite low-carb wine.
Maybe you’re prepping for you and your partner to have a romantic evening together. Perhaps you and your closest friends are getting excited for Galentine’s Day, or maybe you’re looking to get inspired for a relaxing solo evening of self-care. Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered!
From infused cocktails to recipes that are made even more delicious when paired with a pink glass of Rosé, we’ve put together some of our favorite Rosé inspired recipes to make your Valentine’s Day the ultimate sweet celebration.
Enjoy a Refreshing Rosé Colored Cocktail
Whether you’re gearing up for a night out or settling in for a romantic night in, this Rosé infused cocktail will set the perfect mood for your evening. Picture it now—a tall glass with effervescent bubbles at the top, delicately sliced strawberries floating throughout, and then a gradual ombre of pink towards the bottom. Plus, it’s easy to put together even if you’re making a large batch.
Each serving needs an ounce of vodka, two ounces of cranberry juice (we recommend low-sugar or sugar-free), two ounces of soda water, two ounces of rosé wine, and then two to three strawberries. We won’t lie; these measurements are pretty loose, so feel free to add or subtract ingredients until you’re perfectly happy!
Start by slicing your strawberries. You can cut them into shapes (heart-shaped would be cute!) or you can keep things simple. Just make sure you remove the leaves. Then it’s pretty much just a matter of adding everything to your glasses. We recommend tall glasses so you can really see the ombre effect.
Add ice to your glasses, but make sure to place strawberries throughout so they don’t all float to the top. Then add your vodka, cranberry juice, rosé, and top with soda. That’s it!
Savor Our Balsamic Watermelon Feta Salad with a Glass of Rosé
Sometimes you want something decadent and rich, but other times you want something refreshing and light. This recipe is PERFECT if you’re in the mood for the latter. Plus, we’ve even provided options to help you add more protein if that’s your thing.
Our Balsamic Watermelon Feta Salad is bright, fresh, and perfect as an appetizer or even an entre when made in bulk. Imagine juicy watermelon, crisp spinach, balsamic dressing, and savory feta cheese. And DEFINITELY consider adding grilled shrimp if you want to make it more substantial.
Craft the Perfect Charcuterie Board to Enhance Your Rosé
Not only are charcuterie boards just plain FUN, but they’re also such a creative way to pair food and wine! Obviously, you should include any of your favorite items, but a few fan favorites will bring out all of the natural flavors and aromas of your favorite bottle of Rosé.
Since the majority of Rosés are crisp and fresh with fruity undertones of berries, citrus, and maybe even watermelon, matching those flavors and aromas is an easy way to highlight those features. That means including fresh strawberries, raspberries, or melon and fresh and mild cheeses like brie or even soft goat cheese.
Instead of opting for intense meats like salami or pepperoni, stick with prosciutto or smoked salmon to accent all of the other floral, fruity flavors. Additionally, if your bottle has subtle herbal notes, consider adding items like tomato basil bruschetta or artichoke hearts. Finally, make sure to offer things like honey or balsamic glaze so everyone can enhance the sweetness of each bite if needed.
Wrap Up the Evening With A Sweet (Frozen) Treat!
Yes, we love this recipe during the summer AND you can make it even easier by just throwing some ice and wine into a blender. However, our PALO61 Toscana Rosato Frosé has that extra element that makes it perfect for special occasions.
Pour your rosé into ice trays and freeze for at least six hours. We recommend doing this the night before to make sure they’re completely frozen. Also, remember that an entire bottle of wine will make roughly four to six servings and will likely require more than one ice tray.
Once your ice cubes are adequately frozen, prepare your strawberries (roughly four ounces) by removing the stems. You can go ahead and quarter them if you like, but it’s not a huge deal since they’ll get added to the blender. Then, add your rosé cubes to a blender, two ounces of lemon juice, one cup of regular ice, and purée until smooth. That’s it! Pour, garnish with a strawberry slice, and cheers to a Happy Valentine’s Day.
