I don’t know about you, but these 40 degree days are becoming excruciatingly common and I’m really not the biggest summer lover – I don’t tan and I definitely don’t get those gorgeous beachy waves in my hair. Bring on winter and the gorgeous coats I say!
This summer though, Jacob’s Creek have come to the rescue with their newly released Le Petit Rosé and I likey!
Not only does it look good, but it smells beautiful and tastes divine. The perfect mix of a variety of vibrant flavours from Pinot Noir, Grenache and Mataro, this is the perfect summer drop and will perfectly compliment that delicious fresh salad or platter. You can read more about the new range here.
Even though I’m a little bit more of a winter gal, I do love sitting outside in the late afternoon sun soaking up the last few rays, and Jacob’s Creek have just made that moment even nicer with the launch of Le Petit Rosé. Create a Frosé or add ice for extra chill, speaking of which I decided to add a bit of pizzazz to my ice cubes and pop rose petals in them – not only do they compliment that beautiful rose scent and flavour of the Rosé, but they also make your drink look a little bit fancy when the cubes start to melt.
Why not give them a try this weekend, I think you’ll love them! x
Step 1: Gather your favourite edible flowers or petals – I chose rose petals from Scoop Wholefoods, they have recently opened a new store at The Junction in Newcastle and have a number of stores in Sydney.
Step 2: Boil the water that you will use to fill your ice cubes – often this will help to ensure your cubes are clear and the colour of the petals pop!
Step 3: Fill the ice cube tray halfway with the boiled water.
Step 4: Sprinkle your desired amount of petals into each cube, then freeze. I added quite a lot but of course you can add as many or as little as you like.
Step 5: Once the first half of the cubes have frozen, fill the remainder of the tray to the top with boiled water. You will need to wait until the boiled water has cooled down so that you don’t melt the cubes you have already frozen, but by boiling the second lot of water you will ensure that your cubes stay as clear and vibrant as possible. Then freeze again.
Step 6: Add the cubes to your next glass of Le Petit Rosé and enjoy!
