Raising Kids that never sleep in a city which doesn't sleep.
Rose Rundown for Parents
Spring has sprung and the warm sun on our face has us musing about pretty pastels; in our wardrobes, budding perennials, and also wine glasses. Great news! This season's top pink offerings will help coax us out of our winter hibernation.
Rosé, while often paired with beach weather, Sunday brunch gossip, or a raw bar special, makes a great addition to snack time. You know, that odd time of the day around 3 p.m. when the big kids are out of school and the babies are waking up from their naps. It's rosé's time to shine for you while your kids, no matter their age, are in dire need of a snack. So, let's pair some of the top rosés on the market with some kid-friendly snack options us moms are all a little too familiar with.
Yes Way Rosé and Fruit Snacks Gummies
You guys! Target is selling a bottle of rosé made in the South of France. French Wine at Target! And it's très délicieux and cracking good bargain at $13 US dollars. This is not your mamas White Zinfandel ladies. With light notes of citrus and strawberries, this wine has me excited for warmer weather and stressing out over bikini season.
Get your double dose of fruit juice with this pairing of 'Yes Way Rosé' with your kids' Fruit Snacks Gummies. The Pinterest-perfect moms are popping up everywhere with their homemade wine gummies. After all the prep and heat, those things are weak sauce and who wants to cook if you don't have too. This trick is way better: Just wash your kids' fruit snacks down with Rosé. There are your wine gummies.
Angry Orchard has released a Rosé Cider for those us who love to grab a pint at the pub but don't always crave hops and barley. After all, it's just apple wine. If you thought drinking cider in a pub couldn't get any girlier, you thought wrong, and I'm sold. It's light, fruit-forward with a hint of a floral note.
This keen new offering works well with your favorite brand of baby fruit Puffs. These melt in your mouth kid snacks pop, literally, with the effervescent tickle. The combination is reminiscent of pop rocks, but the puffs are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals for your growing bones.
White Girl Rosé and String Cheese
This mix of Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel grapes technically qualifies as a White Zinfandel. It's a little sweeter than the other rosés, but I totally forgive it because the bottle comes with compliments. Literally, it says on the side of the bottle, "You Look Great. Did You Lose Weight?"
If you're anything like me, you came to the happy realization in college one night —likely around 2 a.m.—that string cheese compliments just about any fermented beverage. At your next playdate with the cool mom, crack open a bottle of White Girl Rose. If you suddenly realize you're out of good cheese, don't worry—you're a mom and improvising is what you do. There's a 99% chance you have string cheese in your fridge.
Babe Rosé with Bubbles and Animal Crackers
They're sweet like cookies yet crunchy like crackers and your kids get a good laugh by eating their butts off first. This crunchy cookie couldn't pair more perfectly with a dry canned sparkling rosé. Yes, Babe Rosé comes in an adorable and portable little can that is picture-perfect for picnics, the beach, and the movie theatre...Who said that?Canned wine is having a moment and I couldn't love this one anymore.
