This frosé recipe is so fun and refreshing! Frozen rosé wine slushies blended with strawberries, for a pretty pink warm-weather cocktail.
It’s almost the weekend! Woo-hoo!
Let’s think about how we can celebrate this with a frosty, slushie frosé.
There’s nothing nicer than a blended cocktail on a warm summer night, am I right? I’ve definitely been known to enjoy the occasional strawberry daiquiri, frozen mango margarita, or sangria slushie when the weather is hot and sultry.
And now I have a new favorite: frosé. Pretty pink rosé wine, frozen and blended with strawberries. It’s a party in a glass!
WHAT IS FROSÉ
The word “frosé” is derived from mashing up the words “frozen” and “rosé.”
And that’s basically what frosé is: frozen rosé wine.
In this case, we are blending it up with sweet strawberries, but you can leave those out, or replace them with just about any other fruit you can dream up.
HOW TO MAKE FROSÉ AT HOME
This recipe is about as easy as it gets, my friend!
We are going to start by freezing about 2/3 of a bottle of rosé wine. This step is optional, but I like it because it makes the drink extra-cold and extra-slushy.
Pour the wine into a zip-top freezer bag, seal it tightly, and place it in a baking dish (just in case it leaks). Then slip it into the freezer until it’s icy.
It won’t completely freeze, because of the alcohol. After a long nap in the freezer, it will be solid but easy to break up into chunks with your hands.
Place the chunks of frozen wine into a blender.
Then add frozen strawberries. I’m just using frozen whole strawberries from the freezer section at my grocery store.
You can also add a little bit of sugar, if you prefer a sweeter drink. The exact amount is going to depend upon the brand of wine you buy, and on your personal preference. My wine was very dry, so I added about 4 teaspoons of sugar to get a taste that was just sweet enough to me.
Add the remaining 1/3 bottle of wine and blend it up!
Look how airy and smooth it gets! I love it, it’s almost like a sorbet or Italian ice!
CAN YOU USE DIFFERENT KINDS OF FRUIT?
For the frosé you see here, I used frozen strawberries, but you can use any kind of frozen fruit you like.
The sky’s the limit!
CAN THIS BE MADE AHEAD?
Because the alcohol in the wine prevents it from freezing rock-hard, this is a great make-ahead treat.
Go ahead and blend it up, then transfer it from your blender to an airtight container, and pop it into the freezer.
Just scoop it out with an ice cream scoop whenever you want to enjoy some.
HOW LONG WILL IT KEEP?
This frosé recipe will keep for several weeks in the freezer.
