Patriotic Sips: Rosé, White and Blue

Fourth of July weekend is finally here and after a long and hectic month of June, I am ready to relax with my favorite drink for the holiday…rosé! From sparkling to still and even *canned* I’m sharing my favorite blush wines with you in time for the weekend.

This time last year, I was sipping rosé poolside in the south of France…how cute is our pink hotel?!

My go to for still Rosé is of course, Miraval. I love the taste, it is widely available and it is a great price…I’d also be lying if I didn’t say I love the fact that it’s owned by Brangelina. But if Miraval isn’t available, my rule of thumb when ordering rosé is to try to get a bottle from Provence. Many other wine regions have started making their own rosé blends, but I haven’t found many I love outside of Provence. I don’t like sweet or heavy wines and the wines from the south of France just seem to be my favorite.

For other still rosés, I love Minuty rosé, but it is not as easy to find here in Texas, Whispering Angel and Summer in a Bottle. If you’re in the mood for sparkling rosé, which I often am…I would highly recommend, Perrier Jouet Blason Rosé, Veuve Clicquot Rosé and Freixenet Italian Rosé.

My favorite sparkling rosé!

Last month, my friend Erica and I tested out canned rosé. Canned beverages often get a bad rap, but they are so practical in the summer. You can throw them in a bag and take them on a boat or to the beach or wherever you want to go! They are also much cheaper to buy than bottles and come in more manageable sizes. We tested out five canned rosés and ranked our favorites!

In first place, we chose the Crafter’s Union, in second, the Porch Pounder, in third, Ava Grace, in fourth the House Wine and in fifth, Underwood.

I hope you have enjoyed my rosé selections! Leave me a comment and let me know which one is your fave and I hope you have a great weekend celebrating the Fourth of July!
