National Rosé Day!

There’s nothin’ like a good national food or drink holiday, and it seems like every day is one.  Yesterday was National Donut Day and today is National Rosé Day!  You can’t really go wrong with donuts, and you DEFINITELY can’t go wrong with rosé!  I’d be happy with simply pouring myself a glass of rosé, but I didn’t think that would give you guys much to work with.  So, since I’m either all or nothing kind of girl, I’m giving you not one recipe, not two recipes, but THREE recipes to celebrate National Rosé Day!  

I incorporated Lillet Rosé which is a French aperitif that has an aroma of berries, orange blossom and grapefruit into a few of the recipes and gave you recipes ranging in ease.  Hope you have a great Rosé day, however you celebrate!
