Another great option for portable wine has hit the Colorado market: Molly’s Spirits’ canned sparkling rosé. It’s a great option for when glass isn’t allowed or an outdoor adventure is at hand. Molly’s Rosé Bubbles is crafted in Oregon and boasts aromas of fresh strawberries, candied ginger and rose petals with flavors of raspberry, papaya and honeydew. The wine is available in recyclable 375-milliliter aluminum cans, meaning just two cans is the equivalent of an entire bottle of wine. Available while supplies last.
