Some would think, mint julep, when it comes to bourbon-based summer cocktails. We think, rosé. The combination of blueberries, lemon, tea, bourbon, and rosé make for one hell of a punch bowl. We recommend setting it in the shade, just beside the pool, for maximum pleasure.
• 7 tablespoons raw sugar
• 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided
• 2 cups brewed unsweetened black tea
• 1 1/2 cups Sister Wine Rosé
• 1 cup bourbon
• 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 8 lemon slices
Stir sugar with 7 tablespoons hot water in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved; transfer to a food processor. Add 1 1/2 cups blueberries to processor and purée. Set a strainer over a large pitcher. Strain blueberry mixture, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard solids. Add tea, rosé, bourbon, and lemon juice to pitcher. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
Cut remaining 1/2 cup blueberries in half; add to pitcher. Fill Old Fashioned glasses with ice. Divide cocktail among glasses. Garnish with lemon slices and serve.
