Rosé or lemonade? We can't get enough of either during the summertime, and thankfully you won't have to choose with this cool concoction from Dessert For Two! It's the best of both worlds: a combination of tart and tangy homemade lemonade with the fruity brightness of wine that'll keep you cool all summer long.
"If the two most refreshing things about summertime got together in a glass, it would be this rosé lemonade," says Christina of Dessert For Two. "I used my favorite non-sparkling French rosé, but you could definitely use a brut rosé. There are some great domestic ones (I love Mum, Gloria Ferrer, and Handley Cellars). Or, you could use sparkling lemonade."
