There is nothing quite like a chilled glass of wine on a hot summer’s day – for many, it is the perfect treat.
But some people are starting to elevate their beverages to add a little touch of spice after a woman on TikTok started a new trend.
In a video on the platform, A woman called Allyssa filmed herself chopping a jalapeno chilli before dropping a few slices into a flask of rosé.
Then she popped the flask into her rucksack and headed off for a day out at the beach.
In a later video, Allyssa, who often posts quick and easy recipes, filmed herself toasting to Monday with a glass of ‘spicy rosé’.
In response, people who have watched Allyssa’s videos are inspired by her creativity and have vowed to try out ‘spicy rosé’ for themselves.

It is thought the sharpness and spice of the jalapenos cuts through the sweet, citrus undertones of the wine.
As the jalapeno sits in the drink, it starts to infuse meaning the spice becomes more prominent.
Southern Living magazine recommended also adding a few ice cubes to your glass, and also offered tips on how to increase the strength of the spice.
In particular, putting the jalapeno slices into the glass first, and pouring the wine in second, makes the flavour more intense.
You could also turn your spicy rosé into a spritzer by adding some sparkling water for an extra kick.
