Rose wine is often fairly sweet, but a dry version can make an ideal cooking wine. Rose is best for refreshing beverages, pasta dishes and lighter-coloured food. If a dish seems well suited for pairing with rose, you can most likely prepare it with a small amount of the wine.

Incorporate rose wine into refreshing beverages. Add it to Fresca, sparkling water, or other citrusy carbonated drinks. Add rose wine to sangria, or make a pink lemonade beverage out of it. Use equal parts rose wine and the other ingredient.
Add 1/2 cup rose to every 2 cups of a creamy pasta sauce for a little added sweetness and flavour. Rose wine is good with light, creamy sauces for lighter-hued food, such as chicken breasts, pork, pasta and seafood.
Toss steamed vegetables in a small amount of rose wine and butter for a creamy, fresh flavour. This method is best for vegetables with mild flavours, such as squash, broccoli, potatoes, peas and eggplant. It doesn't work so well with stronger-flavoured vegetables such as peppers, snap peas, zucchini and corn.
Toss sliced fruit in a couple tablespoons of rose wine, and add a little whipped cream on top with mint leaves. Use fruits with berrylike flavours, such as strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, pears, peaches and melon.
