Spring has officially sprung and I couldn’t be more excited to have winter behind us. Having a newborn during the worst flu season ever caused us to hibernate for the last few months but now that the weather is warming up and she’s three months old, we’re spending a ton of time outside.
One of my favorite ways to decompress after a long day is to bring Piper’s bouncer outside while dinner is on the grill and have a glass of wine. She’s happy, we’re happy! Recently I started buying single serving rosé wines, especially wine in a can.
I’m able to have a glass without opening a whole bottle and risk it spoiling or be tempted to have more than one glass which is the most likely scenario. I learned pretty quick more than one glass of wine and Piper’s 3am feeding don’t mix!
If you haven’t tried canned wine yet bare with me. Don’t associate cheap box wine with the canned stuff. Some brands taste just as good or better than the fancy ones in a bottle. The cans are great for sipping poolside, taking to the beach, a picnic in the park or just hanging in your backyard.
A majority of people can agree that rosé wine is typically a lighter drink than the rest of the wines. It is normally produced in Provence, France and Italy; however, some countries like California are beginning to produce their own versions.
Rosé typically has 7-14% alcohol content (varying) while red wine typically ranges from 14% to upwards of 16% alcohol content. Not only are there varying levels of alcohol, but rosé also has a lighter color than red wine. This is because red wines go through a process where the skin of the grape is left on for an extended period of time, extracting its color.
The flavor profile of rosé is fresh and fruity. The flavors in rosé wines usually resemble strawberries, raspberries and cherries; however, they can also have a slight taste of almonds and honey.
This one is my absolute favorite! I love sparkling rosé but Trent’s not a fan so I rarely ever drink it. Most restaurants don’t sell it by the glass and I won’t open a bottle at home because I know it will go flat before I could finish it. Sold as a four pack at HEB in the refrigerated wine section.
Another delicious sparkling rosé to try! The can is almost twice as large as the Bollicini making it a solid choice if you’re interested in more than one glass. I like my rosés well balanced and this one does the trick! Can sold individually.
My favorite non sparkling version as of late. You can taste strawberries and citrus but it has a really crisp aftertaste. Cans sold individually.
This one gets an honorable mention because of the cute name and packaging. It’s crisp and easy to drink. Available in a bottle as well!
Trader Joe’s sells a rosé that’s pretty decent. It’s a little too dry for me but I like it when it’s really cold!
The best food pairings for rosé wines are salty foods or very spicy ones. It is also a great beverage for brunches, luncheons, picnics, and other outdoor affairs. Summertime is when many people think about rosé wines because of their refreshing nature and ability to pair well with the warmer weather.
Rose canned wine is a great way to enjoy your favorite summertime beverage on the go. Whether you’re at home, on vacation or just hanging out with friends in the backyard, there are plenty of occasions where it makes sense to drink rose instead of red wine. The best part? You can take cans anywhere and they won’t spill! All that’s left for you to do is pop them open and pour yourself some deliciousness without worry about any hassle (or calories). Which occasion will be next time I’ll be drinking my favorite rosé from a can?
