We’ve rounded up three pretty pink beverages to suit any kind of atmosphere.
Turkish delight cordial
Gudgu is a foodie dream with its own unique handcrafted cordials. It believes in applying good old-fashioned slow cooking to make sure the cordials are just perfect. The sweet, rose-flavoured cordial is the perfect guest to a romantic picnic. Add a can of tonic water and a few mint leaves to your Gudgu Turkish delight for a beautiful, refreshing drink. If Turkish delight doesn’t strike your fancy be sure to try the pink lemonade cordial.
Pink French bubbles
In 1818, Veuve Clicquot was the original champagne house to blend white and red wines to create a Champagne Rosé. What followed was a delicious pink, fruit-based champagne that would continue to woo bubbly fans for years to come. This champagne combined with a starry night on a rooftop would charm even the biggest cynic. The Veuve Clicquot Rosé is best paired with variants of grapefruit, Camembert, duck, shrimp and salmon dishes.
Snow White & Rose Red tea
A cool, wooded area accompanied by magical fruit combinations would be the perfect setting for a fairy-tale picnic. The Tea Merchant’s Snow White & Rose Red blend of mild fruits with cactus fig, red berry and hibiscus is the perfect pink addition to a picnic basket. Pack a flask with boiled water, some fairy cakes and finger foods for a treat your other half will never forget.
