Why Think sweet and sour raspberry soda with a mild alcohol content (2.5% abv). This Belgian fruit lambic is lovely as a post-dinner treat shared amongst friends. Not the kind of bottle you want to attack solo; its deep, juicy flavours are best appreciated in small doses.

L'Orangeraie rosé vin de Pays d'Oc
Why Chalk it up to affordability, pervasiveness or a bit of both, but this rosé keeps ending up in my glass this summer, and that's fine with me. Elegant, fruity and dry, it's got all the trimmings of an everyday summer wine.
