Rosé Cocktails Capture the Last Rays of Summer

The Last Rosé of Summer

Before summer’s gone, stop and smell the roses. Or the rosé. Let’s not get hung up on the diacritical.  There’s no rule about pink cocktails after Labor Day, so feel free to enjoy anytime, but these cocktails featuring The Palm by Whispering Angel capture the flavors that capture the summer sun—stone fruit, strawberries and the smell of fresh roses. Dive in.
