As consumers become more sophisticated about wine, restaurant operators are seeing a growing respect for and interest in rosés, primarily the dry varieties. These refreshing wines-which tend to get a boost when temperatures get warmer-offer a range of flavors and flexibility in food pairing that’s making them a new favorite at many establishments.
A Rosé by Any Other Name…
By Melissa Dowling
We had a surplus of sample wines at Cheers headquarters recently, and the team members were all picking out a bottle or two of wine to enjoy at home. “I guess I’ll take this rosé, since my wife likes sweet wines,” said one colleague. The perception that all rosés are sweet is a lingering one in the U.S. Why is that?
2 parts Cruzan Passion Fruit rum
½ parts Fresh squeezed lime
¼ parts Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
¼ parts DeKuyper Cherry Liqueur
¼ parts Rich simple syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Fine strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a thin sliced lime wheel.
The mixologists at Cruzan shared this recipe.

It’s hard to believe I got to this point in my life without ever having a Pisco Sour, but it’s true. It took a recent visit to Chile for me to finally try one. Now there’s no going back-I love this cocktail.
