Summer may be long gone, but rosé season is here to stay thanks to Hangar 1 Rosé Vodka! And there's no gimmicks: the innovation isn't just a rosé-flavored vodka — it actually combines real rosé with liquor.
"In working with neighboring vineyards and farms to source the grapes and fresh ingredients that create our core products, we were inspired to create a rosé vodka that celebrates local Golden State wine culture," the brand states. "Hangar 1 Rosé is a first-of-its-kind blend of our classic Hangar 1 vodka and real California rosé wine."
Like the summer staple, the drink maintains its pale pink color, and is, "floral with notes of crisp apple, sweet pea blossoms, and a hint of oak on the nose, with a silky and soft mouthfeel finishing fresh with hints of cranberry."
According to lucky testers at Delish, "It tastes a lot like vodka initially, but then that burns-so-good feeling is washed away with a delicately acidic taste that's unmistakably rosé-like. It's a little floral and a little fruity. "
One big difference from the classic wine? You won't be able to finish the bottle in one sitting, as it's 30 percent alcohol by volume — which is more than double of a typical bottle of rosé. To drink, you can throw back straight shots like any other liquor, or you can try out one of Hangar 1's irresistible recipes like a sangria or a spritzer.
Of course, rosé fans are freaking out on social media about the new vodka which is now available just in time for Valentine's Day — or Galentine's Day! "Ok I said I was done drinking forever last night but I just found out rosé flavored vodka exists," one Twitter user wrote, and another tweeted, "Apparently there is a rosé flavored vodka and if that doesn't sum up my entire personality."
