Rosé lemonade recipe is the only drink you’ll need this summer.

Rosé Lemonade Recipe for the best summer drink ever

Two people cannot finish an entire bottle of wine.

Wait, can I re-phrase that? Two people shouldn’t finish an entire bottle of wine. At least not on a weeknight. We speak from experience.

Since it’s summertime, we’ve been hitting the rosé almost nightly. But, I’ve been waking up lately only to find that I forgot to re-cork the wine. Again.

Whenever I have a leftover half-bottle of wine, I always use it for mixing drinks. Or cooking. But the other morning, when I spotted yet another open bottle of rosé from the previous night on the counter, my mind immediately went to cool, crisp refreshing lemonade with a splash rosé.

If the two most refreshing things about summertime got together in a glass, it would be this rosé lemonade.

Rosé lemonade recipe

I used my favorite non-sparkling French rosé, but you could definitely use a brut rosé. There are some great domestic ones (I love Mumm, Gloria Ferrer, and Handley Cellars). Or, you could use sparkling lemonade.

I included a recipe for homemade lemonade for two below, but you can most certainly use one that you like from the store.

Cheers to summertime!

Friends, I’m off to the lake for a week. I have recipes ready to share with you while I’m gone next week, but I’ll be a bit out of touch if you need help. Sorry!

My main goal for next week is to get rid of the weird tan line I have around my belly button from my pregnancy. Apparently I laid out with my belly exposed a little too much, because when my belly button became an innie again post-baby, it left a weird line. Big life problems being solved next week.

Lots of this rosé lemonade recipe being made and drank quickly!
