Rosado de verano

Rosado for web

I’ve spent many summers sipping this super-summery drink on grassy verges in Barcelona. The Spanish call this super-relaxed streetside drinking ‘botellón’ – everyone brings a bottle, glasses and some ice and it’s as simple as that.

This is often made with red wine, which works just as well, and shop- bought lemonade, and I have even seen this mixed up with cola. This dusky rose version is my take on the perfect summertime drink.
