Lanique Spirit of Rose – Stunning Summer Serves
Made from Attar of Rose, the pure essence of rose which, gram for gram, is more valuable than gold itself, Lanique Spirit of Rose is a must have on your drinks trolley this summer. Vibrant pink with aromas of delicate rose, fresh raspberry and cherry, and hints of Turkish delight, it’s as utterly delicious with champagne as it is in your favourite cocktail. For a floral twist on the bitter classic Negroni, mix 25ml Lanique, 25ml Gin and 25ml Campari for a high-spirited punch with a delicate rosy finish.
Hattingley Valley – Rosé
Pink and perfect for sipping in the sunshine, enjoy a new rosé from award-winning Hampshire winery Hattingley Valley. This elegant and perfectly pale STILL Rosé (RRP £19) is made from a blend of Pinot Noir Précoce and Pinot Noir grapes that result in a deep fruity flavour of sweet cherries and raspberries on the palate. With notes of grapefruit, pomegranate, fresh strawberries and blossom on the nose, this wine is beautifully balanced by a refreshing acidity and pairs well with light dishes such as summer salads and fruits de mer.
So, let's jump on the Barbiecore spirit this summer and dive into a pink extravaganza. Whether you find yourself on a pink terrace, sipping on a hot pink cocktail, indulging in a showstopping dessert, or enjoying a refreshing glass of rosé, make this season a celebration of all things pink. Barbie would be proud!
