Happy Weekend GLOSSIES!
And with the weekend comes a mini-celebration! In honor of Rosé Day, our editors shared what their plans are for celebrating our team’s favorite pink wine!
A History On Rosé and Rosé Day
According to National Day Calendar, National Rosé Day falls on the second Saturday in June each year. Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines.
A rosé wine will also be lighter in color than red wine, deeper in color than white wine. The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration. There are also rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling, with different intensities of sweetness levels and dryness.
How To Celebrate Rosé Day
DIY Flower Holder
We couldn’t think of a better way to upcycle our beauty box for Rosé Day thanks to our social media team! Grab some Venus de Fluer (or your preferred flower of choice) to fill in your pink box this month because pink is chic!
Editor Note: As a flower lover (I mean, it’s in my name, haha!) I love tulips, carnations, and succulents! Did you know succulents come in pink?
Rosé Wine Tasting
Call up your fave gal pals and bring your favorite (or some new) Rosé wines to have a mini-tasting session!
Schane, our content writer, loves trying new indie bottles and bringing them to parties. Pair with some charcuterie must-haves (chips, crackers, fruits) and you can have a fun day with some good tunes and good vibes.
Editor Note: Charcuterie boards are great because it requires no cooking skills! Even the least creative person can put together an artful masterpiece of meat and cheese! For a simple arrangement, see Midwest Foodie’s super easy recipe here!
Wanna enjoy the outdoors? Tap into your inner cottage-core fantasy and make the tasting into a picnic! Pack some sandwiches and bring those good vibes out into the sun, but don’t forget your SPF and sunglasses!
Grab Brunch at a Pink Restaurant
As our office is based in NYC, we love themed restaurants that are Instagram-worthy. Rose-colored restaurants are taking over the food scene providing not only delicious bites to munch on, but also a picture-perfect backdrop for your next Instagram, a total win-win.
Blogger extraordinaire Caroline Vazzana is a fashion editor, stylist, influencer, and the author and founder of “Making it in Manhattan.” We loved her curated list on every pink restaurant you need to visit in New York City, and Rosé Day is the perfect time to do some exploring in the Big Apple!
