Although adding ice to wine and champagne is typically looked down on, iconic luxury champagne brand Veuve Clicquot recently added two rosé wines to their summer roster, both of which are meant to be enjoyed over ice.

The two new bottles -- Clicquot Rich and Rich Rosé -- are inspired by mixology, and as such are meant to be drunk with ice, blended and treated as distilled liquors. The Clicquot Rich has signature wine notes "magnified by the presence of selected ingredients: pineapple, grapefruit zest, cucumber, celery, peppers or tea, all on the rocks," where as the Rich Rosé has "intense red berry fruit notes."

The game-changing pink rosé wines indicate how luxury beverages are becoming more accessible, even to less than discerning consumers.
