Instead of a typical bouquet of roses for Mom this Mother’s Day, why not step up your gifting game with a bottle of Rosa Regale from Banfi?
Rosa Regale offers a palate of fresh strawberries, wild raspberries and rose, a perfect complement to Mother’s Day brunch. If you want to take breakfast in bed up a notch, we also recommend trying to mix up the Rosa is Red, a fresh-for-spring cocktail featuring Rosa Regale.
Rosa is Red
5 ounces Rosa Regale
1 ounce London Dry Gin
3/4 ounce Lemon Juice
3/4 ounce Lavender Simple Syrup*
1/2 ounce Blood Orange Juice
