the spicy cocktail trend of the summer

New summer/TikTok trend alert: spicy rosé

It’s simply throwing some jalapeño slices and some ice into your rosé. Usually I’m not into putting stuff in my wine, but with a non-fussy rosé there isn’t much harm.

Grapefriend tip: I definitely wouldn’t use a light, Provençal-style rosé which would get completely overwhelmed by the spice. A good Tempranillo-based Spanish rosato holds up much better: it’s much heartier and even has a little cherry spice of its own.
