Add a little bit of ✨spice✨ to your next glass of the Good Rosé 🌶 Would you try this spicy cocktail?
Saintly Wine brings this tasty idea and asks Rosé wine lovers would they try a spicy cocktail? This is so easy, just add some jalapeño slices to your glass of Rosé!
So love it or hate it would you even try it? A trend on tik-tok and starting to make an appearance on Instagram this may not be for the vaint of heart but think about all the great options. How about a “dirty rosé” with pickled jalapeños? Would you add the pickled juice or just the jalapeño? Would you keep the seeds or discard them to make it not so hot? Would you eat the jalapeño on it’s own with a shot of Rosé? Would you dare? How about with a side of blistered Shishitos? The possibilities are endless!
“Contrasts can enhance distinctive qualities. Jalapeños will complement the light, sweetness of many rosé wines while also serving as a decorative garnish. Ice cubes lighten the spice a touch. People are hungry for new experiences and this trend is a novel extension of pairing wine with foods that have intense flavour profiles.” Arterra Master of Wine Eugene Mlynczyk
Saintly the good rosé
Saintly The Good Rosé features notes of strawberry, raspberry, peach, and lime, as well as subtle floral notes. The palate is clean and crisp with a rich texture and dry finish. Strawberry carries through on the palate with lingering stone fruit notes.
Blessed with the goodness of grapes from the Niagara Peninsula, Arterra Wines offers up this angelic rosé with a medium-bodied and dry style. Its aromas and flavours of strawberry, citrus, bergamot and rhubarb nestle on a rounded palate, leading to a crisp, long finish. Enjoy with a hummus plate or raspberry almond tart. @lcbo
