Rosé wine

Though rosé wines are closer in flavor to white wines, they’re actually made from black-skinned grapes. While red wines are allowed to ferment with the skins for weeks or months, rosé wines sit with their skins for just a few hours. This gives them that gorgeous hue, and imparts some complex flavor compounds you won’t find in white wines.

The best rosé wines come from France – specifically Côtes de Provence and the surrounding regions – although New Zealand makes for a close second. There are plenty of American rosés to choose from, but nearly all of them are quite sweet, so we tend to avoid them when making cocktails.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
