Pink bubbly is always popular on Valentine’s Day. How to make it even better? Pair it with something sweet…
First, it’s time to pick out the perfect fizz. You can find rosés from all around the world, from rosé Champagne, pink Cava and an elegant rosé English sparkling wine.
There’s plenty available in your local wine merchants or supermarket, for example:
Freixenet Cordon Rosado Seco (£6.50 at Tesco)
Champagne Veuve Devanlay NV Rosé (£15 at Morrisons)
Bolney Estate Briar Rosé English Sparkling (£24.99 at Waitrose)
Champagne Canard-Duchêne Rosé NV (£27.99 at Waitrose)
Moët & Chandon Imperial Rosé NV Champagne (£30 at Tesco)
Desserts to match with sparkling rosé:
Chocolate lava cake: The ideal dessert for any chocolate-lover. A rich chocolate cake with a warm and gooey centre. The richness of the chocolate works wonderfully with the sweet, fruitiness of pink bubbly. In fact, many chocolate desserts would work great, such as chocolate cake, mousse or truffles.
Fresh fruit: Not a fan of chocolate? A refreshing, colourful fruit dessert also goes great with rosé. You could keep it simple with some fresh fruit, such as peaches and ice cream or some fruit sorbet. There’s also the best of both wolds with chocolate-covered strawberries – romantic (and easy to make).
Cheesecake: The beloved soft and delicious cheesecake. For the occasion, go for a lightly pink strawberry cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries or raspberries.
