National Rosé Day
One of my favourite days is just around the corner and today, I want to celebrate early. What day am I talking about? Well, national Rosé Day of course! haha Rosé is my unofficial official drink of summer. And I'm not talking about white zinfandel - I'm talking about the real deal Rosé. Call me basic but I love a good Rosé. It's refreshing, it's pink and let's be honest, it's wine so of course I love that the second Saturday of every June is dedicated to one of my favourite drinks. It gives me the perfect excuse to pop open a bottle or two ;)
I was thrilled to try Sandhill wine's own Rosé (by now you should all know Sandhill is my go-to wine. Check out this sangria and these posts here and here for the evidence). The Sandhill 2016 Rosé is a little bit fruity, slightly dry and not too sweet which is the perfect combination if you ask me. According to Sandhill this wine pairs well with antipasto so naturally, I had to put together a delicious antipasto board to enjoy with my first glass of rosé of the season.
What's on my board?
For the perfect antipasto board I like to have two kinds of crackers and two kinds of cheese. A few pickled beets, olives and spicy pickled beans for a bit of kick.
Then comes the marinated artichoke hearts (yum!), mixed nuts and fresh fruits.
Finish with a few kinds of meat (I have two kinds of salami and some proscuitto on here) and you have put together the perfect antipasto board to go with your summer rosé!
I love to buy most of my antipasto items from SPUD. They have such a great selection of different crackers, cheeses, meats and accompanying foods that it's so fun to put together a fresh and unique board with tasty items! If you haven't tried SPUD yet, use referral code CREDM-TIDDIA for $20 in FREE groceries!
Cheers everyone! And don't forget to celebrate national rosé day this saturday June 10 - I know I'll be celebrating! ;)
I want to send a huge thank you to Sandhill wines for sending over the rosé for this post! Sandhill has become one of my favourite wines and I highly suggest giving them a try if you haven't already. Or if you're a real wine lover like me, check out their wine of the month club! (And yes, I am a member! haha)
