Rosé Margarita

I had the idea to create a rosé margarita to combine two of my favorite drinks. My internet search served for some inspiration that I used to try to curate my own recipe. The attempt to find the perfect combination started with three different directions. 1. A spritz-y version using sparkling wine. 2. A more classic version with still wine. 3. A more boozy option with tequila rosa.

Here are all the ingredients I gathered to play with the recipes.

Rosarita

  • 3 oz. Tequila Rosa
  • 2 oz. Lillet rosé
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. citronge
  • Agave

Spicy Sparkler

  • 1 can of Babe rosé
  • 6 oz. watermelon juice
  • 3 oz. Cucumber Jalapeno Tequila
  • 3 oz. lime juice

Rosé and Good Vibes

  • 1 can of House Wine rosé
  • 3 oz. Casamigos Tequila
  • 3 oz. lime juice
  • Agave

Then I took all three over to a friend’s house for a little tasting fun.

The verdict! We liked the Rosarita the best. It was the smallest one and we were sad for it to be done. As the booziest one that didn’t have any actual wine in it, this tasted the most like a normal cocktail. The Spicy Sparkler grows on you as you drink it. If I made it again I would shake with jalapeno slices to make it even spicier. The Rosé and Good Vibes kind of just tasted like rosé. Wine flavors in this one overwhelmed the lime and tequila.

Overall though, I didn’t LOVE any of the cocktails. Maybe margaritas and rosé aren’t meant to go together. Or maybe I need to try a different direction of flavors to mix. Let me know if you have a recipe that I should try.

Regardless of the cocktails not being the best ever, we had a fun time hanging outside while trying them. We have leftover cups from out wedding which I brought over.
