Rosé Cocktails : 40 Deliciously Different Pink-wine Based Drinks
The go-to choice for easy warm-weather drinking and delicious enjoyed on its own, rosé wine also makes the perfect ingredient in 40 refreshingly different summer cocktails.
The recent rise of rosé as THE summer drink started with the arrival of frosé (a cheeky concoction of fruity frozen rosé blended with strawberry syrup and served slushy-style) but bartenders worldwide are now turning their attention to the pink stuff (in all its styles from dry and crisp to ripe and sweet) and using it as the base for more complex, sophisticated drinks. Some are subtly spiked with vodka, gin, whisky, or tequila, others are sweetened with sticky fruit-based liqueurs such as Cointreau and cassis, some are sharpened up with tangy citrus juices like pink grapefruit and lime, a few are underpinned with the herby note of rosemary- and basil-infused syrups or accented with delicate floral cordials, such as elderflower and lavender. Ros also works beautifully in a fruit-filled summer punch, served in large bowls or pitchers and packed with juicy orchard and berry fruits.
Here you'll find recipes for all styles of recipe from short to long, flat to sparkling, tart to sweet, and fun to fancy. Choose an elegant sparkling aperitif such as a Pom Pom or a Blackberry Bellini; a sophisticated sipper like the Rosy Glow or Pink Gimlet; a long refresher like a minty Rojito or Spanish Copa de Frutas; or an tooth-tingling icy treat such as a Twisted Frosé or Raspberry and Rosé Caipirinha; or why not share the good news with friends and fill a bowl with Just Peachy Punch or serve up a pitcher of Bourbon and Blue Iced Tea.

Bar Cart Style - R Peters; Small StaffRegular price $19.95 Save $-19.95
Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 12 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts.
Bar carts are making a big comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamor of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you're not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.
Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for poolside parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office, and even folding 1960s aluminium tea lady trolleys can make quite the statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the height for mixing drinks, each style of cart lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your bottles of spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers, and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.
