Curious About Rosé?
If you're having horror flashbacks about boxed white zinfandel from your college days, don't worry. This punch is nothing like that sugary, sad excuse for a light wine. In fact, rosé has a fresh, almost acidic taste, without the added sugar. Aside from its appealing taste, rosé is also cheap! Because its is younger compared to a more matured wine, it's cheaper to make, which means it's cheaper to buy! The most you'll pay for a nice bottle of rosé should be around $30, and plenty of good ones are available for less.
