Yes way, rosé!

Summer is fantastic for so many reasons: pool days, long summer evenings, cookouts with friends and summer vacations. But best of all, it’s rosé season. Rosé is one of my favorite wine varietals. It has a unique flavor profile and can vary from sweet to dry – meaning there is one for everyone. And what could possibly be better than a cold glass of rosé? Sparkling rosé!

This sparkling strawberry rosé cocktail is the perfect drink to sip on a hot summer day. And it has a fun secret ingredient: strawberry jam! Serve them up at your next summer get-together in Chinet® Cut Crystal® stemless wine glasses with Chinet®Classic White beverage napkins for an easy and elegant entertaining solution. I love using the Cut Crystal stemless wine glasses for my everyday entertaining because they are so classy looking and sturdy, yet disposable for easy clean-up.
