Level up your summer happy hour with a rosé-themed cheese board! I lay out all my favorite cheese to pair with rosé wine, along with some homemade crackers and a quick sweet-and-spicy strawberry jam (both made with more rosé, of course!). Perfect for an evening with friends, or just to celebrate the end of a long day.



Parmesan thyme rosé crackers

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1/2 cup rosé wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Flaky salt + black pepper 

Quick chipotle rosé strawberry jam

  • 1 pint strawberries, stems removed and chopped
  • 1/3 cup rosé wine
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder

Parmesan thyme rosé crackers

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoons thyme leaves and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup rosé wine and 2 tablespoons olive oil and use a fork or your hands to mix together until a sticky dough forms. If dough looks dry, add more liquid (either wine or water) until you get a dough ball you can work with.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and roll into a rectangle, about 1/8-inch thick. Don't worry about making the perfect shape, just roll the dough until you get to the right thickness.
  4. Brush with a little more olive oil (about 1 tablespoon) and sprinkle with more thyme leaves, and 1 teaspoon each flaky salt and black pepper.
  5. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into pieces and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly prick each cracker with a fork and bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Let cool before serving.

Quick chipotle rosé strawberry jam

  1. Add 1 pint chopped strawberries, 1/3 cup rosé wine and 3 tablespoons sugar to a saucepan and set over medium-high heat. 
  2. Bring to a boil and then use a wooden spoon to start smashing some of the strawberries and release more liquid. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring/smashing every 5 minutes.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder and let simmer for an additional minute. 
  4. Remove from heat and let cool before serving. The jam will thicken a bit as it cools!
