Drink: Best In Show

This week's cocktail gets its name from not only its amazing summery taste, but also its gorgeous color. The Best In Show mixes mint, strawberry, orange and vodka with sparkling rosé for a bright drink that tastes like a guilty pleasure. Strawberry and orange add strong, fruity undertones, but the mint evens out this flavor for delightful refreshment.
