Refreshing Rosé Lemonade
If you are a wine lover, this easy cocktail with rosé wine is sure to be a new favorite.
Both lemonade and rosé are perfect for summer so pairing them together just makes sense!
And pink wine puts smiles on faces plain and simple.
When mixed with lemonade and club soda, you get a fizzy beverage that tastes familiar but with a kick of wine.
It’s the perfect drink to sip poolside with your best Mrs. Roper kaftan and big floppy hat.
What type of rosé should I use
It really doesn’t matter what type of rosé you use in this cocktail. Easy, right?
Rosé is made with red grapes that is only in contact with the skins for a little while giving it that pink color and distinct flavor.
There are all kinds of flavor profiles across pink wine. White Zinfandel is super sweet. I prefer a more dry rosé from Provence.
They all work! That’s the beauty of this versatile recipe. Here are 5 good rosé wines you can use if you need specific examples.
What type of lemonade should I use
Again, there’s no wrong answer to what type of lemonade you should use. I prefer to use something store-bought so I don’t have to squeeze a zillion lemons.
But fresh lemonade would be even more flavorful!
You can even use pink lemonade if you want. It will give it even more pink color.
You could even use a lavender lemonade to introduce another flavor element.

You’ll find a printable recipe, with full measurements and instructions at the end of the post.
- rosé wine
- club soda
- fresh lemon
You can pick your own bottles or have them choose for you. Shipping is very quick and they always have some delicious rosé options.
From their famous Summer Water to the cans of Ruza, there are tons of great pink options!
Club Soda can be a little bit too fizzy for some people. You can also try a gentler sparkling water as a substitute.
In a wine glass with ice, add your favorite lemonade.
Add your favorite rosé.
Add a splash or more of club soda. Give it a gentle stir.
Taste it. If you want to brighten up the flavor a little you can add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
I do this, but it will depend on if you made your own lemonade or used store-bought.
Garnish with a little piece of lemon and sip away.
One sip of this rosé lemonade cocktail can transport you to a made-up summer destination in your head.
I love mixing rosé and lemonade. It’s tasty and it’s great for day drinking. Although I love a good buzz, I do not love to be buzzed around my kids.
If I want to relax at a pool or under my umbrella on a hot summer day, I like a cocktail with less alcohol. This Rosé Lemonade Spritzer is perfect for that.
I save the hangovers for girl’s weekends.
