A rosé by any other name…is still a rosé, but what exactly qualifies? Typically, a rosé wine takes some of its color from the grape skin, but not enough to qualify as a full-on red.
At The Food Channel, we’ve noticed a big uptick in the popularity of rosé, as a stand-alone beverage and especially in use as a mixer. For Mother’s Day, Angry Orchard mixologist partner Jeremy Oertel has crafted this delightful Rosé Cherry Blossom cocktail that’s perfect for sipping as you celebrate mom.
This rosé is actually in the form of a hard cider, created with French red-flesh apples to provide color.
