Rose' All Day!

Friday, March 16, 2018 10:50 AM

Rose' All Day!

Spring is here! Flowers will be blooming, birds will be singing, and Rose' we'll be drinking!

Rose' wine is a forecast of warm, sunny days, with a chance of day drinking. 

Originating in the south of France, it has reached new heights here in the U.S. thanks to it becoming the "Hamptons' Gatorade".

It pairs with just about anything you're eating and any occasion you're planning.

If you like a crisp, dry, and bright rose', find one from the Provence region.

If you enjoy a fruitier rose', go for a California one where the grapes grow bigger and juicier.

What also pairs nice with rose'? Why, our Mariposa "Rose' All Day" Beaded Wine Plate, of course!  Great for serving your guests as well as the perfect gift for wine lovers.  It's a lovely resting place for your bottle and is made of 100% recycled materials.

So, let's raise a glass and say our "Goodbyes" to Winter, because everything's coming up Rose'!


"Spring is nature's way of saying 'Let's Party!'"

.....Robin Williams

The Big Game calls for big drinks, and what pairs great with some smash mouth football? Why, a Whiskey Smash of course! Perfect for a Host Whiskey Freeze Glass.   This cocktail has been around almost as long as American Football.  For people not fond of whiskey, the Smash is a great gateway drink to try.   It actually works amazingly well with any spirit.  We have two recipes tailored to the teams in the game.  Let's look at our starting lineups.

Tequila Tequila in our favorite FREEZE HOST glasses.
IMG_6260Can you believe we missed #NationalTequilaDay?! We can't.. so in light of the season changing and the holiday weekend right around the corner, we are breaking out the tequila one last time for the perfect cocktail in our HOST FREEZE cocktail glasses. 


Although these particular glasses (pictured above) are designed to keep your whiskey chilled, they work perfectly for all cocktails. We'll just chalk that knowledge up to experience. (wink, wink)  
without further ado..  


THe Perfect Paloma Cocktail

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 shots of tequila (we used Patron Silver)
  • juice of half a ruby grape fruit
  • 1/2 shot of agave syrup or sugar syrup
  • about 75ml club soda
  • a squirt of fresh lime juice (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix the grapefruit juice, tequila and sugar syrup until well mixed.
  2. Pour into your frosted HOST cocktail glass and top with soda water. You can also add a squirt of lime juice, and rim the glass with salt, if you wish.

NOTES

If you are wanting to reduce your sugar intake, simply leave the sugar out. Its less sweet but delicious.

Tequila, Tequila. Enjoy!  

Here are A few more FREEZE HOST glasses to choose from.
