I hear that spring weather is in full swing in many places around the country, but it’s been pretty iffy here in NYC. I’ve resolved to not let that bother me and have officially decided to shift into spring mode, weather be damned. One of my favorite seasonal shifts is from sipping red wine to enjoying a glass of chilled rosé. And to make those first few glasses celebratory, I’ll be mixing up these rosé wine cocktail recipes.

So, cheers. It’s finally time to pull out that yes way, rosé t-shirt. No jacket required.
