Spring has officially sprung and I couldn't be more excited to have winter behind us. Having a newborn during the worst flu season ever caused us to hibernate for the last few months but now that the weather is warming up and she's three months old, we're spending a ton of time outside. One of my favorite ways to decompress after a long day is to bring Piper's bouncer outside while dinner is on the grill and have a glass of wine. She's happy, we're happy! Recently I started buying single serving rosé wines, especially wine in a can. I'm able to have a glass without opening a whole bottle and risk it spoiling or be tempted to have more than one glass which is the most likely scenario. I learned pretty quick more than one glass of wine and Piper's 3am feeding don't mix!
If you haven't tried canned wine yet bare with me. Don't associate cheap box wine with the canned stuff. Some brands taste just as good or better than the fancy ones in a bottle. The cans are great for sipping poolside, taking to the beach, a picnic in the park or just hanging in your backyard.
MY FAVORITE CANNED ROSÉ WINES
1. BOLLICINI SPARKLING ROSÉ
This one is my absolute favorite! I love sparkling rosé but Trent's not a fan so I rarely ever drink it. Most restaurants don't sell it by the glass and I won't open a bottle at home because I know it will go flat before I could finish it. Sold as a four pack at HEB in the refrigerated wine section.
2. UNDERWOOD ROSÉ BUBBLES
Another delicious sparkling rosé to try! The can is almost twice as large as the Bollicini making it a solid choice if you're interested in more than one glass. I like my rosés well balanced and this one does the trick! Can sold individually.
3. HOUSE WINE ROSÉ
My favorite non sparkling version as of late. You can taste strawberries and citrus but it has a really crisp aftertaste. Cans sold individually.
4. ROSÉ ALL DAY
This one gets an honorable mention because of the cute name and packaging. It's crisp and easy to drink. Available in a bottle as well!
Trader Joe's sells a rosé that's pretty decent. It's a little too dry for me but I like it when it's really cold!
