Last week, I polled my Instagram followers to find out what cocktail they would be most excited about double fisting for the margarita week celebration that is now upon us. The toss up was between fresh ginger margaritas or rosé margaritas, and although the race was tight, it turns out y’all are a bunch of basic, summer water-loving fools like me. Rosé margaritas FTW!

Now I know being “basic” gets a bad rap, but let me clarify by saying that there is no shame in loving things that are universally good. Rosé wine is so delicious and refreshing that I’m fine to chalk it up among the masses of other Americanized favorites. If yoga pants, La Croix, and sharing photos of your coffee on Instagram can continue to find a home in today’s society then certainly we can all make a little room for the most aesthetically pleasing wine of this millennium, right?

As it turns out, rosé and the classic margarita are a match made in heaven. I got the idea for this beverage from another cult favorite, Jeni Britton Bauer’s Jeni’s Ice Creams. She recently sent me one of their newest flavors, “Frosé” sorbet, and she recommended topping a scoop with a tequila floater. Booze and dessert? I was sold.

It only took a few tries and a couple of tipsy Tuesdays to land a recipe for these rosé margaritas. I found that a restrained pour of tequila, a generous amount of lime, and just enough simple syrup could combine with a half serving of rosé to make a beverage that reads equal parts wine and marg. Truly, this combo is one serving at all future summer bashes.

Making rosé margaritas is simple! Combine one ounce each of lime juice and tequila with an ounce and a half of simple syrup in a tall shaker. Fill with ice and shake, shake, shake, until the mixture is seriously icy. Pour the contents of the shaker into a salt-rimmed glass and top with four (yes, four) ounces of your favorite rosé wine. I’d recommend one that isn’t too sweet so that the cocktail is balanced. Give the drink a stir and TA-DA! Rosé margarita heaven. 

This recipe can easily be batched for a crowd. I’d recommend doing the math and shaking the tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup in a large beverage Tupperware. Pour the contents into a large pitcher, stir in the appropriate amount of wine, and serve immediately. I’m not saying you’re going to be everyone’s new BFF, but let’s just assume this to be another universal truth. If you make these rosé margaritas, they will come.

    Made this for a #noboysallowed weekend and it was a huge hit. I’ve also made this using a sparkling Rose that is even better! Cheers!

  • This sounds like such a great cocktail! I love the mixture of the rosé with a traditional margarita! I’m not typically a margarita girl because I don’t love tequila but if there was rosé in it too, I’m sure it would become a quick favorite. Definitely going to make this on Cinco de Mayo!
