Rose Popsicles Are Now A Thing, Because Summertime
As I sit here typing this in Los Angeles, the temperature is climbing above 90 degrees, and I don't have central air. What I would really like is a cool drink, and a popsicle. Well — ask, and you shall receive. Rosé now comes in a boozy popsicle, because it's summertime, and the livin' should be easy. Rosé Season is offering these boozy pops for rosé season, also known as summer, and you're going to want to get some and hashtag #RoséMadeMeDoIt on social media.
These refreshing booze-sicles comes in three flavors: Coconut Rosé Sangria, Watermelon Mint Lemonade, and a variety pack. Available in packs of 12, 24, and 48, they're perfect for spending a hot night cooling off together while you lament the global warming responsible for this oppressive heatwave. Seriously, it's time to get your frosé on.
Rosé is the oldest varietal of wine, and is made by harvesting grapes, crushing them to release the juice, and letting the juice ferment, according to The Rosé Rules. While this blush-colored vino eventually fell out of favor, its been making a strong comeback for the past 20 years.
"In the early 2000s, rosé’s popularity started to build. Resorts and beach destinations around the U.S. started stocking pink French wine. Americans’ fascination with France was on the rise, and with it, their interest in rosé. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and Drew Barrymore soon got in on the action with their own rosé production," GuildSomm noted.
In fact, in Aug. of 2014, panic struck when the Hamptons ran out of rosé — the horror! "The shortage was definitive proof: Americans love rosé. The pink drink had become mainstream — and social media was about to turn it into a superstar."
Whether you have it in a glass, or as a boozy popsicle, rosé is definitely synonymous with summer.
