Although rosé can be enjoyed year-round, it has been a summer go-to for decades. Coolers are another perfect summer beverage, with ever-growing popularity. Whether in-store or online, the choice is vast! To celebrate the season of patios and picnics, here are some fresh pairings.
These coolers are aptly named, as these delicious exotic fruit cocktails will transport your taste buds straight to the tropics. This mixed pack of 12 cans offers four flavours for all tastes: passion fruit, pineapple, mango, as well as watermelon and kiwi. In accompaniment, try these bocconcini and guacamole bites: a perfect recipe for an easy-going evening.
You certainly know Corona beer, but did you know that the famous brewer also offers tropical fruit seltzers? Their 12-can assortment includes three delicious flavours: grapefruit and lemongrass, lime and cactus, and raspberry and lemon. We can already imagine ourselves on our balcony, enjoying the last ray of sunshine of the day, with a tropical Corona in hand and a Thai-style beef salad in front of us. A beautiful mix of flavours that is sure to transport!
Oshlag Seltzer is a local product that comes in a case of 12, and is made for sharing. It's a perfect option for lovers of alcoholic sparkling water, but also for discovering new flavours that express themselves subtly: blood orange, peach, and raspberry. To accompany these fruity cocktails, here is a recipe that should satisfy your taste buds: a grilled asparagus, Parmesan, and soft-boiled egg salad.
Smirnoff Ice Pack
To celebrate every moment spent in good company, we reach into the box and open a can of Smirnoff Ice. Once again, there are four flavours to choose from: the original lemon version, as well as the summery blue raspberry and blackberry, peach and mango, and Berry Blast - a mix of cherry, lemon and blue raspberry. A Californian salad is the perfect accompaniment to this festive mixed case.
Borsao Seleccion Rosé Campo de Borja
Off to Spain! This year's Borsao Seleccion Campo de Borja is the new favourite for summer happy hours with friends. This rosé from the Ebro Valley is characterized by its beautiful acidity and generous mouthfeel. A delightful pairing with gazpacho, for sunshine in the glass and in the bowl!
Gérard Bertrand Gris Blanc Pays d'Oc
This rosé from Languedoc-Roussillon is likely to be a familiar sight on tables this summer. For rosé lovers, it never disappoints with its delicate, bright and well-balanced palate. This easy-to-drink wine is a perfect accompaniment to a fattoush salad.
Kim Crawford Rosé
Did you say rosé? This list wouldn't be complete without Kim Crawford's, which charms with its light, fruity character. Its notes of watermelon and strawberry will be enhanced by this spinach, strawberry, pecan, and goat cheese salad with maple vinaigrette.
La Vieille Ferme Luberon Rosé
This wine from Luberon is another classic that never disappoints. It is the very definition of a fun rosé! With its lively and aromatic mouthfeel, this blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah will pair beautifully with a simple dish like a halloumi salad.
