Editor's note: Consider this your mid-week pick-up: a boozy recipe! Hurray! This sort of post is new to Brikasia, and I hope you guys like it. I know I do!

Okay, okay, I'll admit it: I am generally not a fan of rosé wine. This is probably the most anti-feminine I'll get, but truthfully, I just don't like overly sweet drinks. I prefer refreshing over super sweet any day. That being said, I was sent a bottle of rosé wine (Blushing Rosé) by the incredibly sweet PR people behind Sociologie wines. And you know what? It was pretty damn refreshing, especially during Florida's incredibly hot summer.  I was trying to think of a cool and unique way to showcase the flavors in this wine. A friend suggested I mix some gin with the rosé to make a refreshing summer cocktail, and oh. my. god. Guys. This drink is out of this world. You can bet your butt that I'll be making this on the reg' for the rest of summer! Click through for the suuuuper simple recipe. Trust me- you'll be obsessed.


2 oz. of dry gin
Fresh strawberries
Fresh mint
Sparkling water
1 lemon
  1. In a large glass, muddle a few strawberries and fresh mint. I eyeballed the amount here, but I would say I used a handful of strawberries and about 5 mint leaves. Depends on how fruity/minty you want the drink to be!
  2. Add your wine and your gin to the glass. Stir the drink (don't shake!). 
  3. Time to break out your wine glass (or glass of your choice)! Add some crushed ice to the glass, and then cut some slices of your lemon. Place two slices against the glass. 
  4. Pour the drink into the wine glass, making sure that some of the muddled pieces of strawberries and mint make it into each glass. Fill your glass a little more than halfway.
  5. Pour some sparkling water to top off the glass. Then, taking half of your lemon, squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top.
  6. Garnish with some mint leaves, lemon slices, or strawberries. Up to you!
And that's it! This recipe is enough to make two drinks. And it's so crazy refreshing! Thanks to the sparkling water, this drink is nice and light, so you can have more than one if you're feeling up to it.
