We suggest fixing a cocktail that’s refreshing, fruity and delicious—and, naturally, pink. So, pick up a bottle of rosé wine, since the light-bodied vino is the perfect addition to a springtime tipple and can be used in a variety of ways.
Mixologist Steva Casey specializes in seasonal concoctions at Birmingham, Ala., restaurant Veranda on Highland. And her Madame Bovary-inspired Le Mot Juste is a powerful-yet-delicate creation that features sparkling rosé, cognac, Dubonnet and the Italian amaro Ramazzotti.

And if your mom’s a serious cocktail fan, she’ll love Cocchi Americano Rosa, an elixir that was first released in January and is now rolling out across the US. It combines a vermouth-like botanical bitterness with rosé’s fruity character. Try it in the Ha Long Bay from the new New York spot L’Amant.
