Mas de Boislauzon La Chaussynette Rose 2015
There’s nothing wrong with drinking pink, and we’ve found just the bottle for chilling out in this scorching hot weather. A blend of grenache and syrah, Mas de Boislauzon La Chaussynette Rose is a certified biodynamic rose that hails from the Cotes du Rhone. Between its vibrant hue and bright notes of berries balanced with citrus-y zing, this uncomplicated table wine makes for easy summer drinking - and it won’t break the bank. $14.99 , PH Wine Merchant, 200 Peachtree Hills Ave., Atlanta. 404-949-0702, phwinemerchant.com.
Fat Lady Baker Pumpkin Bread
We love sinking our teeth into a slice of sweet quick bread, but in the height of summer, turning on the oven isn’t very appealing. Leave that job to the Fat Lady Baker. The scratch pumpkin bread coming out of owner-baker Nancy McKinney’s Marietta shop is super moist, nicely spiced and full of pumpkin flavor. Find it at the Fat Lady Baker store in Marietta as well as the Acworth, Brookhaven, Marietta Square, Sweet Apple and Woodstock farmers markets. $6 per loaf. 2995 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta. 770-587-3005, fatladybaker.com.
