The beginning of June means many things: the start of summer. No more wearing a jacket because it might be cold at night. Watching the Cubs defend their World Series title (OK, that one isn’t normal, but we’re still pinching ourselves). And best of all, June means it’s time for the Rosé to flow. While having a glass of chilled Rosé on its own is perfectly acceptable, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. Here are seven of our favorite pink drinks to enjoy as the summer begins.
