For today’s boxed wine pitcher cocktail, I combined two flavors synonymous with the winter months: apple cider and rosemary. I added a rich aged rum, dry orange curaçao, crisp white wine, and spiced orange bitters to these classic holiday flavors for this island-inspired drink. It’s the perfect pitcher cocktail to ease the tension in a crowded kitchen or just sip on all afternoon.

When we think of convenience in the kitchen, we are often thinking of cooking from the pantry or using the blessed slow cooker, but the freezer is a resource for smarter cooking in its own right. No matter what meal you’re making, there’s a way to utilize the freezer to your benefit. Smoothies and breakfast sandwiches become weekday affairs and company-worthy pork chop dinners deliver the ultimate convenience. They go from freezer to slower cooker — minimal prep required.

Rosé has everyone’s attention, and now that it has finally received the praise it deserves, I thought one day of this week’s series on wintry boxed wine pitcher cocktails should be dedicated this wine that’s so often associated with summertime. You can tell by the gorgeous holiday color why I thought it was an appropriate fit this week.
